Community Supported Agriculture
CSA is a unique partnership between producers and consumers. Members purchase their share in advance of the season’s harvest in order to support the farmers’ costs of production. The farmers pledge to do all that is possible to provide members with an abundance of the freshest and healthiest produce possible. Both farmers and members are aware that nature and weather will ultimately influence the availability and amount of certain crops. Realizing this we grow over 30 different vegetables and twice that many in varieties to ensure a successful harvest. Every week throughout the season each member receives a “box” of that week’s harvest split amongst the members evenly. This year we are going to have two different box pick up days to choose from:
- Every Tuesday from May 26 – Oct 27 Or
- Every Thursday from May 28 – Oct 29
Both are 23 weeks in length
Whichever day of the week you pick, that is the day you will keep throughout the season.

Eat Healthy – We select which vegetables to grow with taste as one of the most important factors. We do not grow for “qualities” like shipability. It is easy to eat healthy when the food is delicious. It’s awesome hearing stories from members on what new vegetables they have discovered from our CSA that they just love. Parents also tell us how amazed they are at what vegetables their children now suddenly love to eat. There is no debate…. eating organically grown, nutrient dense, farm fresh food is good for your health!
Save Money – For each share, when running a cost comparison to the local grocery store, members are saving alot of money at our farm. Over the course of our 23 week season it adds up to hundreds of dollars saved. And this is on top of the fact that our produce is harvested fresh and given directly to you skipping the middleman.
Join a Food Community – Each week members have the opportunity to visit the farm. Pick some fresh herbs, pick a bouquet of flowers, share a story of a triumph in the kitchen, share a recipe idea, or chat it up with Joyce and Scott under the “pick up pavillion”! Members are encouraged to join our private Facebook group TFF Community. We also write a weekly blog during the season to inform members on what to expect in each share.
