Welcome to 2019, our 10th year of having a Community Supported Agriculture(CSA) Program! What started as an after workday hobby has flourished with the support of the community and a lot of hard work! As we turn another calendar year over we reflect back to our humble beginnings, trials, triumphs and friendships made over the years. In these moments warm smiles and feelings of gratitude outpour from us. We continue to remain enthusiastic about growing organic, nutrient dense, farm fresh food! We are excited to begin another year and there is no better time than the present to signup as a 2019 CSA Member!
To go along with your weekly share of our farm fresh veggies, additional items like The Nesting Box’s eggs, Calaboga Grazing’s beef and pork, Four Monkey’s coffee, Pappy’s Bees Honey, Augusta Acre’s Maple Syrup and possibly more will be available.

Memberships can be reserved with as little as a $100 down payment or be paid in full. We prefer that balances be paid by the start of the CSA season, but are willing to work with members to set up a payment program that works for them.
People join our CSA for many reasons. Here are 3 common ones:
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!
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 CSA share 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.
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. The cost of a Full share equates to $30/ week or $4.34/ day. And this is on top of the fact that our produce is harvested fresh and given directly to you skipping the middleman.
We hope you decide to join us for 2019.
Have a Happy New Year!
Hello Greg and family,
I’m still considering whether to join a CSA this year, but I really enjoyed the few visits I made to your farm last year for canning tomatoes, syrup & the fall market. And your selection of veggies is very interesting — can one purchase additional veggies on site when picking up the share? Also, re: eggs, does one sign up for a weekly share or just purchase them a la carte?
Finally, I noticed that on the sign-up page you reference 8-12 items per week, while on a different page it mentions 8-10 items — just wondering which one is accurate.
Thanks; get back to me when you can.
All the best, Marian Preston
Hi Marian, We’re glad you enjoyed your visits to our farm. We will have additional veggies available for purchase occasionally. If there is ever something you would want extra of, never hesitate to ask! The eggs can be purchased a la carte. As far as the number of items in your share it really does vary throughout the season. I would say we average 10 items though. In the beginning and end it is probably more like 8 and in the middle it is more like 12! Thanks for your questions!
