Summer 2013 Shares
SUMMER Sold Out.
Still have holiday and winter.
Community members become shareholders of the farm by purchasing a share of the harvest each spring. This cost supports growing a diverse selection of fruit and veggies each year that are then distributed back to the shareholders. Summer shareholders come to the farm once per week June through October. Thanksgiving and December Holiday shareholders come once during each month of November and December. Winter shareholders pick up food once per month January through April.
As with our pastured animals, we believe in crop rotation and resting plots of land in order to produce healthy vegetables while maintaining healthy soils.
What is a CSA?
By becoming a shareholder at Little Ridge Farm, you have the opportunity to build a relationship between your food, the land it was grown on and the people who grew it. This marketing method is called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Community Supported Agriculture translated means “food with a farmer’s face on it”. The concept began in Japan in the 1960’s and has since spread through Europe and the United States.
