Our Partnership with One Straw Farm

We are proud to partner with One Straw Farm for the second time for this year’s CSA!


Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a mutually supportive commitment between farmers and consumers. In exchange for a seasonal fee, CSA members receive a weekly share of delicious, fresh, pesticide- and chemical-free produce. CSAs in this country have been around since the mid-1980s, and have been enormously successful as an economic model supporting small organic farmers and building communities in close relationship to their food and the earth.

One of the highlights of belonging to a CSA is the opportunity to learn about seasonal eating. One Straw Farm harvests crops at peak ripeness and phases them out when they are past their prime. Early season you’ll get cooking and salad greens, radishes, scallions and colorful beets and carrots. Mid season we move into the juicy tomatoes and cucumbers, eggplants and peppers. Into the fall, the storage vegetables begin to mature and we offer potatoes, onions, garlic, shallots, and sweet potatoes to eat fresh or carry into the winter. Finally, we close out the season with kale, collards, mustard greens, winter squash, spinach and the best lettuce and kohlrabis of the year. We plan to include a pre-washed fresh salad mix frequently.  One Straw Farm grows without dangerous pesticides or fertilizers but is not USDA certified organic.
