CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The theory behind a CSA is to get your food from someone you know and trust, know the land your food is grown on, and know the techniques used to grow your food. You put your trust in your farmer; and by paying for your vegetables up front you are agreeing to be a part of the joys and risks of farming in your bioregion. If we have a bumper season due to good conditions (weather, lack of pests and disease, etc) then you will get more food than you paid for. If things go wrong during the season (weather, disease, pests, etc) you may get slightly less food than you paid for. But by being a part of a CSA you are showing your support, and benefiting, from a system that returns people to a sustainable model of eating. You will also be giving yourself and your family the most fresh and nutritious food, grown in the most responsible and caring way.
Our CSA is a group of people that appreciate great food, community, local small-scale agriculture, the environment, and the theories and practices behind living sustainably.
For the 2019 season we will supply families with fresh, seasonal produce and cut flowers once a week. The pick-up is at our on-site farm stand, giving our members a chance to connect with the people, methods, and land growing their food. We are centrally located in Park City on Old Ranch Road, which allows easy access from most neighborhoods in the greater Park City area. All vegetable shares last for 18-21 weeks starting in late May or early June depending on the weather. At the beginning of each season the CSA share consist mostly of greens and herbs, but come July, August and September, the bounty is rich with many different vegetables. Check out our crops page to find out what we grow.
All of our vegetable shares include a recipe each week along with news from the farm. Contact Daisy to sign up.
In addition to CMF produce, we partner with Red Bicycle Breadworks for CSA bread shares, and a local cheese producer for cheese shares. Not interested in an official share of either of those? You can find their products for sale at the farm stand.
