Our CSA Program begins the week of May 20th! Sign up today!

Members receive a share of fresh produce from the farm every week

The 2018 season begins the week of May 20th and will run for 13 weeks. In the past we have offered 2 different share types, but this year we are offering only one type of share at $25.00 per week.  Spots are limited this season so a $25.00 deposit is required when signing up to hold your membership spot.  This deposit will be used at the last week of deliveries as your last payment.  Sign up today to receive your weekly box of tasty fruits and veggies!

We will no longer be customizing member’s share; however, there will always be additional produce at each delivery location so that members will have the ability to exchange produce if there are fruits and veggies that are not wanted. As all produce is freshly harvested, you’ll receive only what’s in- season and ready to eat. Variety and volume of produce are dependent on weather and may vary from week to week.

 A weekly share is only $25.00 or Prepay for only $325.00. 

2017 members, ask about our refer a friend discount!

When we say local, we mean local

The majority of CSA produce is grown on our farm in Oaktown, Indiana. We occasionally work with select local growers and partners to add diversity to the CSA shares. We always let shareholders know if something has been provided by one of our partners and where that fruit or veggie was grown.

A few of our partner growers:

Grateful Greens – Clarksville, IN
Grateful Greens is a hydroponic lettuce and herb farm operating out of an 18,000 square foot greenhouse, growing approximately 35,000 plants.

Apple Hill Orchard – Bruceville, IN
If you’re lucky, you’ll find some of the family’s 40 varieties of apples or juicy peaches in your late summer shares.
