CSA Harvest Shares

Join Little Ridge Farm CSA and Know your Farmer

We have been growing Little Ridge Farm since 2007 and love what we do! Our MOFGA-certified organic produce will be the highlight of your table throughout the year. Join our convenient, flexible CSA and discover what fresh really means. Your tastebuds (young and old, kids and spouses) will thank you for it!

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.

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.

Summer Harvest Share

FULL SHARE $645 / HALF SHARE $355

Summer Shareholders choose from a diverse selection of fresh produce each week during the growing season (June-October). This list provides an idea of when and what items are available. Enjoy farm products for purchase all Summer long, free access to a PYO garden for herbs and flowers, PYO berries for sale by weight, and plenty of sunny days to tour the farm and visit with the animals.

SIGN UP FOR A SUMMER SHARE

The produce is displayed “market style”, meaning you have the choice of how much and what kind of seasonal produce you want for that week up to a total given weight.

The summer share weight varies throughout the season. Full shares may receive between 3 and 24 pounds, the average being around 11#/week; half share 5.5#/week. (Average is the total weight distributed, over the entire season, divided by the total number of pick-ups, at least 21 weeks.) Recipes and preservation tips are provided each week via the Happy Farmer Farm Blog and Facebook.

Shareholders have free access to a PYO garden with flowers and herbs.  We also have PYO strawberries and raspberries for sale exclusively for shareholders.

Summer Pick-up days are either Tuesday or Friday from 3-7pm. If you can’t make your pick-up day you may

  1. Ask to switch pick-up days that week
  2. Send a friend to grab your share
  3. Donate your share to the food bank
  4. Let me know 24 hours in advance, and I’ll bag a share for you to pick up the next day.

We offer a work share opportunity that allows one to get a more hands on experience with the farm in exchange for a discount on their share price. Please contact us if you are interested!
