Happy Spring Everyone! Shares for our 2015 CSA are for sale and we’d love to have you as a member for 2015!
Our CSA is 18 weeks of in-season, organically-grown, fresh-picked produce packed up and ready just for you! Along with the veggies, you also receive a weekly email with farm updates and recipe ideas. Close to Thanksgiving weekend we try to provide you with everything we grow that you may want to use when cooking a big family feast, be it a pumpkin for your pie, herbs to season your bird, celery for your stuffing or squash and potatoes for your sides! We also grow a few decorative items for the Autumn season, including gourds, rainbow corn and Jack-o-lantern pumpkins. We keep a list of links to all the recipes we have ever shared with our members over the years on our website, and we encourage our members and all customers to share their own photos or recipes of cooking with Fresh Start Farm produce on our Facebook page!
For a comprehensive list of what we will be growing in 2015, please check out this page.
