2022 CSA DETAILS
HOW OUR CSA WORKS
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farm model that allows people to be more directly involved with their food choices. You essentially become a member of the farm by paying for a share of the farm's production prior to each growing season. Your investment as a member provides early capital to buy the seeds, supplies, equipment, and other inputs we need for the growing season without waiting until harvest to generate revenue. Then, you get a share of what is harvested each week during the season.
CSA members receive a share of the produce from the farm while also sharing in the risk of crop failure or pest or disease problems with the farm. Members realize that a refund will not be issued in the event that no crops are harvested. We do our best to manage problems with proper planning, interventions, and an integrated pest management strategy. In addition to the financial support each season, we enjoy a long-term relationship with our members, and look forward to members renewing their memberships each year.
MEMBERSHIPS ARE CURRENTLY
We are so thankful for the overwhelming support by our community for locally, living soil grown produce!
If you were not able to sign up for membership this year, please feel free to stop by and see us Sunday mornings at the Palisade Farmers Market beginning in June. We will have produce available, including our valley-favorite Gourmet Salad Blend lettuce as well as season-appropriate items.
This season we will also have additional space at the market and will be offering select locally-produced products including breads, honey, canned items, and artwork from our some of our partners.
If you've already signed up for membership and/or have questions, please feel free to text (or call) us at:

SHARE PICK-UP LOCATIONS
Saturday, 10am - 2pm
Market-style pick up at the Farm
For the 2022 season, we are encouraging members to pick up their share Saturdays between 10am - Noon at the farm, market-style, where you will have choices that fit your tastes, rather than the luck of the draw the pre boxed option provides. And you’ll get to watch the farm grow throughout the season!
If Saturday market-style at the farm isn’t convenient for you, we do offer pre-boxed shares for an additional charge (for the season) of $50 for full share and $25 for half share.
Pre-boxed pick up locations:
Redlands at Preserving Techniques
Wednesday from 5:30-7pm
Fruita at Copper Club Brewing
Wednesday from 5:30-7pm
Downtown at The Hog and The Hen
Delivery available for an additional charge, call for details.
