Join us for this year’s season of farming! Our planting season begins in a few weeks as we start to plant for our early spring shares! We still have spring shares available but they do sell fast. Spring shares are 4 weeks of salad greens, asparagus, cooking greens, spinach, head lettuce and more early season produce.
Join us for the shorter spring shares and then for the coming Summer season to continue receiving fresh, local, organic produce every week, June through October!
It has begun. The digging for hats, gloves, wind-breakers, dry shoes, closing windows and keeping an eye out for dead, dry, potential firewood. But even before that, many of the crops were starting to come in from the fields to cure. It is time to transition to storage temperatures or dry to the best storage condition so that we can have delicious food for our family, members and farm friends through the long winter ahead. Spinach, salad and choys are planted. Turnips, radishes, rutabaga, carrots, cabbage, celeriac, parsnips, kale, and other cool weather crops are waiting for the first frost to make them sweeter just before they are harvested for storage in November, before the first hard freeze.
We will have 3 bi-weekly deliveries of fall produce and storage crops, just in time for the holidays and for those days and weeks of winter filled with fragrant aromas of warm and comforting meals from your kitchen.
Sign-ups for winter shares are OPEN and space is very limited for these shares so don’t delay! We also have very limited help to prepare these shares and because of that we are limited to only 3 pick-up sites, all in Jefferson County.
We also offer a very limited number of 20 week egg shares to these sites in the winter months. Again, don’t delay if you are interested in signing up for winter shares or eggs!
Warm weather is on its way and we have begun our seeding for 2016! Baby leeks are up and spring share crops are on their way! Early spring shares will bring lots of salad greens, cooking greens, spinach, green onions, spring herbs, rhubarb and asparagus! A few weeks after our spring shares end, our summer shares will start in June and the boxes will be filled with all of the vegetables of the spring, summer and fall season, right into October. Optional organic, soy-free egg shares will begin with the summer vegetable shares too!
We invite you to join us this season for another great year of FRESH, ORGANIC produce delivered to a location near you! To Join, go to our “sign-up” page.

Greens in the high tunnel, ready to go into spring boxes. The white fabric covers the beds at night to protect tomatoes and peppers when the evening temps drop low.
It may be cold and snowy outside now, but the seed ordering has got us thinking about spring! Join us for another great CSA season in 2016. You and your family deserve to eat fresh, clean and delicious organic produce and eggs. When you know who your farmers are, you don’t need to wonder what you are eating!
Our first winter share date is Wednesday, November 18 and we are looking forward to packing some very beautiful produce into our winter share boxes! There are still a few shares available and we have egg shares available as well.
We are also holding an Open Farm Day Market at the farm on Saturday, November 21. We are open to the public from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Bring your shopping bags and come to the farm to stock up on varieties of bulk potatoes, onions, cabbages, an assortment of root crops, sweet potatoes, PIE PUMPKINS, leeks, assorted greens, Brussels sprouts, parsnips and much more. Visit the farm, have some soup and snacks and prepare for the holidays and a winter of comforting local, organic food!
We will also have stewing hens, organic, soy-free eggs and a limited number of roasting chickens available.
The market is indoors, cozy and heated and there will be items from a few other vendors as well. We look forward to seeing you! Click the link below for a map to the farm:
Our summer deliveries start June 10 and 11! We are excited to start harvesting and sending out boxes of delicious, certified organic produce. Members should have all received at least 1 email regarding the start of the season by now and there will be more coming soon with details about pick-up and what produce to look forward to. The crops all look great and I am very excited about the berries and tree fruit that are loaded and look fabulous!
Our hens are all out on lush pasture and laying amazing organic and soy-free eggs with deep orange yolks. We have a beautiful flock of young ladies that are about to start laying soon, too!
We still have produce shares,and egg shares available for the season and we hope that you’ll join us! Sign up here or stop and visit us at the Fort Farmers market tomorrow to sign up or learn more about membership.
