National CSA WeekNational CSA Week is coming to a close, and we’ve had a really nice response over the last few days, thank you! We’d love to finish strong this weekend and see many more sign ups come in today and tomorrow. Though the CSA payment can be made in full, we have it set up so that you can start with a deposit and/or choose a monthly or weekly payment plan through our our GrownBy page or using the GrownBy app. Our sliding scale pricing allows you to choose the pricing tier that fits with your income and access to wealth.And everyone who has already signed up for the CSA or who signs up for our CSA this week will receive a free jar of our Heirloom Salsa! Come by the farm to pick it up on one of our Friday store days.By signing up and making payment now you give us a huge boost, providing needed funds to pay our staff and purchase essential supplies, and allowing us to focus on farm tasks, having completed CSA sales before spring. Thank you for being with us over the years, and we hope you’ll join us again in 2023!

The basic structure is complete, allowing us to put it to use this year, but there is still work to be done.Etch your place in farm history by purchasing a brick that will encircle the foundation of the pavilion. Bricks come in two sizes and can be purchased through the farm’s website or using the following link. Bricks will be ordered in March and installed this spring. Small brick (4” x 8”): $100; Large brick (8” x 8”); $250
