HOW DOES IT WORK?
CSA subscribers (shareholders) pay in
advance for a weekly share of the freshest
produce during a Wisconsin growing season.
For 20 weeks (beginning in mid-June),
members receive a box containing 5-10
items reflecting that week’s harvest. All
produce is grown without use of synthetic
pesticides or fertilizers. You will get familiar
vegetables (tomatoes, corn, and squash) and
less familiar ones (bok choi, arugula, and
fennel). It helps to have a spirit of adventure
and an interest in new discoveries.
About 80% of a farm’s non-labor expenses
are upfront costs and a significant amount of
labor occurs before the first radish is
harvested. We take full payment upfront as well
as a commitment from shareholders so we
know what quantities to grow. If paying the
full amount in advance is a burden, you may
write two checks with the second post
dated to August 1st and we will deposit it
