Now you decide what veggies are in your CSA bag!
We have found that people fall into one of two camps: those who do want fennel bulbs and those who decidedly don't. You don't want fennel now you can trade for more of something you do want. A CSA tailor fit to you because a bag of veggies that you want is more valuable than one with items you won't eat. There's a reason we are your favorite farm: community supported agriculture that listens to the community.
What is Community Supported Agriculture, CSA?
With a CSA you purchase the experience of fresh certified organic produce picked at the peak of ripeness through a partnership with our farm. CSA members pay in advance and buy a share of our harvest. As a member you will pick up your share at our farm or one of our other pick up locations such as the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market.
In addition to this you become part of your local farm community with invitations to special events, classes and opportunities on the farm.
What if I can’t eat, or dislike, certain vegetables? Customized CSA Shares!
Often people shy away from CSA because they do not want to receive vegetables they don’t wish to eat. Our innovative CSA swap program allows you to customize your share weekly. Most of our members enjoy the adventure of whatever appears in their share but if you wish you can swap out up to two items for something you would prefer from our swap list.
If you chose the customizable CSA option then we will use a weekly survey email listing what is in your share and swap options.
