Our CSA Shares

At Plowshares & Prairie, we are excited to offer a community supported agriculture (CSA) program (see FAQs for more info on CSAs). By buying a share in our farm, you will receive a box of produce from our farm once a week between the week of June 5th and the week of October 16th. In this box will be produce grown by us on our farm and harvested fresh. What you receive in the box will vary by the season; below are a couple example boxes that you might receive at different times of the growing season.

We offer two different share sizes – a regular share that will have approximately 9 to 15 items each week and a smaller share that will have about 7 to 12 items. Each box comes with a newsletter where we describe what’s going on at the farm that week and provide recipes and storage tips for the produce. Your box will be available for pick-up each week at the agreed upon location (see FAQs for pick-up sites and times). The only weekly time commitment our CSA requires is picking up your box of produce, however we would love to have you come visit us at the farm for one of our summer events.

We grow a great variety of annual vegetables, and are also pleased to offer several fruits, including black raspberries, raspberries, watermelon, and cantaloupe. We are also generally able to share a sample of honey with our CSA members from the hives on our farm.

Interested in becoming a CSA member? Fill out the membership form on the sign-up page. If joining a CSA is not for you, we’d love to have you as a farmers’ market customer, and we sell our produce on the farm as well.

We welcome feedback on how to best serve our members, so please let us know if you have any suggestions for how we can make our CSA program even better.
