A micro-farm with vision and planning

A CSA or Community Supported Agriculture honors a commitment between the farmer and the shareholders. The members pay the grower in advance for a weekly share of the harvest. The shareholder receives a crate of fresh, local, naturally grown produce from a source they know and trust. 

2020 membership agreement                                           

In the community supported farm structure, every member of the relationship benefits, the share-holders, the farmers, the farms (the earth), and the greater community.  

This season we are offering crop share memberships. Each member will receive a weekly share of organically grown gourmet produce, that varies throughout the growing season. The product is expected to be available by mid-May and end in October.  We farm with all-natural organic methods and strive to fortify our soils to create nutrient-dense vegetables. We are committed to farming approaches that emphasize soil health and prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. 

Our vegetable selections are for the most part based on taste and experience with various varieties, as well as trying new varieties all the time. This year we ordered organic seeds from five different companies: Johnny's, Fedco, Territorial, Osborne Quality Seeds, and the Maine Potato Lady.  The price of organic seeds has increased by 10-15% since last year. Organic seeds are expensive, but we think it's an important part of the process. We were able to secure all of the seed varieties and quantities we desired for this season, and are excited about some of the new cultivars we have chosen to grow.

Our plan is to stay small and develop a core group of members that buy into our philosophy and quality.  We grow plants with health and well being in mind. Typically our members are people who have a high vegetable intake, culinary skills, and the time to prepare the food.  The pickup day will be on Wednesdays at our farm, located at 6089 100th street SE Caledonia, MI.  The pickup time is between 12 noon and 1 pm, and between 4:30 and 6:30 pm. The 2019 share price is $650 or $450 for a half share, for 20 weeks. Memberships are limited. All shareholders assume the risks and benefits, from the bounties of farming.
