2019 Organic Vegetable Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Registration Details
Beginning May 29th and concluding October 9th 2019 (20 weeks) we will be bringing our weekly harvest of fresh organic vegetables from our farm near Watseka, IL to various drop-off locations in the Chicagoland area (on-farm pick up is also available). Each week you can expect a mix of freshly picked produce packed and ready to be taken home and enjoyed. Please refer to our growing calendar below for our offerings -- this schedule is always set by Nature’s decisions but we do strive to align with this calendar.
Did you know that the average bite of conventional food travels 1,500 miles to your plate? Our food travels about 90 miles MAXIMUM in our box truck to our community.
CSA means knowledge of exactly where your food comes from, support of the economic systems centered around CSAs, flavorful organic produce at a cost less than brick and mortar stores, and support for our farm's ecological stewardship. We want to create healthy communities, and we sure have enjoyed being a part of yours.

Each weekly share consists of about 6 to 10 crops per week - a sample of a late summer/early fall share is: "Gypsy" Broccoli, Delicata Squash, Lettuce Mix, "Candy" Onion, "Carola" Potato, "Flash" Collard Greens, Pepper Mix.
