2017 Winter CSA

Current Season: 2017-18 Winter CSA, November 1 – January 31.

Sign Up Online Here!

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a cooperative farming agreement between consumers and farmers, sharing the inherent risks of working with mother nature and exchanging seasonal produce for up front payment to help buy the necessary supplies and pay the farmers for work done all year round. Especially in our region of Montana, each year can bring new weather challenges: Frosts come any month of the year, and it can snow, rain, and hail as Mother Nature sees fit! By taking part in our CSA, you are sharing in our seasons and in our bounty. To help ensure that our seasons are bountiful, we have 3 heated greenhouses, 2 high tunnels, and use row cover for season extension.  We use varieties that are well adapted for our short season, variable climate, plant a wide variety of crops, and have the experience to back it up! Each of our weekly summer and winter CSA boxes has a newsletter with recipes, will likely feed a family of four, though that depends on how much you cook, and includes a complementary selection of produce including salad greens, cooking greens, an herb, an allium, root crops, and seasonal vegetables.
