Kristy's Barn CSA

When you become a member of our CSA, you are purchasing a “share” of our harvest and assuming some of our agricultural risks and in mid June through mid September members receive a weekly basket of fresh picked vegetables. Customer who enjoy a CSA are those who like to (or want to start) eating healthy, local and enjoy trying new recipes.new vegetables. Our CSA baskets include common vegetables, ones everyone are familiar with and enjoys, and also less common vegetables. We give recipes/websites suggestions to encourage our member to try new vegetables, and new recipes for traditional vegetables. This year, Kristy’s Barn will be offering limited memberships in two, Community Supported Agriculture, (CSA) enterprises, a Summer vegetables CSA and a Fall Fruit CSA.

8 Reasons to Join Our CSA:

  1. Nutrient-dense foods: Whether nutrition has always been part of your diet, or is a new concept, our CSA is a great way to take the stress out of shopping.
  2. New flavors: You never know what new flavors you will discover!
  3. Local: Why haul food hundreds of miles when you can get it in your own backyard? Plus fresher always tastes better.
  4. Creative cooking: New food means new recipes!
  5. Hefty haul: If it is a great year, you’ll get LOTS of food! (2020 averaged 11lbs a week, with over 7 different types of produce weekly!) Great for freezing and eating year-round!
  6. Diversity: We do our best to diversify our crops to ensure that you have enough in your baskets and on your plates.
  7. Pick-up food and friends: Weekly pickups are a great way to meet fellow CSA-ers!
  8. Sharing is caring: If your basket is too full, feel free to share it with a neighbor, friend, or set it in the basket for our local food pantry.

CSA RISKS:

As with any agricultural enterprise, weather conditions dictate the success or failure of production. As a CSA member you are accepting some of the risk associated with agricultural production. We cannot guarantee that all crops will successfully reach maturity. We are a low input producer and use limited spray in our production. We will do our best and use accepted agricultural practices to make this CSA a success.
