What is a CSA?

A farm share program is a form of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).  It involves a mutual commitment between consumers and growers. In return for an upfront payment the farmer provides a portion of the weekly harvest for each family throughout the growing season. This method of financing allows the producer to pay for expenses early in the season while allowing consumers to receive more produce per dollar than they could purchase at the farmers market or grocery store.  The wide range of produce provided gives families the opportunity to expand the range of their diets and discover new favorites.  Share size is dictated by family size and appetite.  A single share is generally sufficient for families of up to four members while larger families will likely require a double share to meet their needs. 

When you become a member of our Farm Share you will receive a reusable box of produce each week.   The season begins in mid-June through mid-October.

Pick up your Farm Share CSA box at: 

Thesis Brewery on Tuesday evenings from 5pm-10pm

1929 2nd St SW 

Rochester, MN 55902   

 

We also deliver to the residence of Scenic Oak Dr. neighborhood of SW Rochester, MN

 

We ask all our members to return their reusable share boxes and any herb containers upon pick up or delivery.

If you know ahead of time that you will be unable to receive your share, please contact us to make other arrangements. 

What does a share include?

Farm share deliveries begin as soon as early season crops become available and continue as long as possible. The produce will change as different crops mature. Early summer deliveries might include salad mix, green onions, radishes, herbs, broccoli, rhubarb, cabbage, beets, spinach, baby potatoes, peas, beans, kale, and other early season crops while late summer deliveries feature tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, melons, carrots, squash, garlic, onions, kohlrabi, Brussel sprouts, sweet corn, zucchini, and a wide variety of herbs and other warm season crops. Families that cook frequently with fresh herbs might consider adding our herb share to receive a variety of fresh herbs each week.  Fresh herbs include various kinds of basil, chives, cilantro, lemon balm, lemon thyme, marjoram, mints, parsley, rosemary, sage, savory, stevia, thyme, and more.  If your family would like to do some gardening in addition to receiving a weekly share, we have a variety of vegetable transplants, flower perennials, and potted herbs available upon request. 

We will do our best to provide you with an abundance of delicious produce however, all crop yields are subject to the changing weather.
