CSA Membership

How does it work?

For large or medium summer share holders, members will receive 16 boxes of fruits and vegetables harvested over the main growing season which typically starts in mid to late June.   Small summer share holders will receive 8 boxes spaced out about every other week over this same season. If you'd like to get an early start on fresh produce, you can extend the season by adding a Spring Share of early greens.  Medium spring share holders will pick up a box for 4 weeks starting in late April, small spring shares (every other week) are also available.   Produce you might receive for both shares is listed below.  Shares will be available for pick-up  Wednesdays in the late afternoon/early evening.  Current pick-up locations are at the farm just south of Menomonie, WI; 885 Laurel Ave in St. Paul, MN and  at  Pilgrim Lutheran Church in St Paul, MN (tentative)

Possible produce?

Each year a broad range of vegetables and fruits are planted with the goal of providing a colorful mix of produce each week.  Heirloom and open pollinated varieties are chosen when possible, and every year something new is planted.  In 2018, new crops were okra, purslane, poona kheera cucumbers, and arugula microgreens.   Assuming great weather conditions and minimal depradation by pests, summer share members may receive the following:  a variety of head lettuce, salad greens, arugula, chard, kale, beet greens, red and/or green cabbage, collards, sugar snap peas, shelling peas, snow peas, green onions, red and yellow onions, broccoli, broccoli raab, kohlrabi, pak choi, carrots, beets, green, yellow and dragon tongue beans, soup (dried) beans, edamame, zucchini, yellow squash, pattypan, 8-10 varieties of potatoes, sweet potatoes, twenty or more different varieties of tomatoes, green slicing cucumbers, hot peppers, bell peppers, sweet frying peppers, ancho peppers, eggplant, butternut, acorn, spaghetti and/or delicata squash, watermelon, rutabaga, basil, thyme, rosemary, sage, dill, lemon balm, chives, oregano, and maybe a strawberry or raspberry or blackberry.  Shiitake mushrooms may also be included in your share. Early summer produce is typically dominated by greens; tomatoes, beans, and cucumbers are added by mid to late summer; potatoes, carrots, beets and squash make up the late fall share.‚Äč

Spring share produce is predominantly greens---head lettuce, salad mix, spinach, arugula, baby kale, pak choi, microgreens, and other salad greens and herbs.  Depending on weather, you could also receive broccoli, broccoli raab, and green onions.

Cost?  

Cost depends on share type:
  • Large shares are $500. This size works well for larger households, for sharing with others, or for those couples that like vegetables.  During the peak summer season, members may receive up to a bushel of produce.  
  • Medium shares are $375.  Perfect for 1-2 people.  Members will typically receive a 1/2 bushel of produce.
  • Small shares are $200.  Perfect for 1 person who may not need a large quantity of vegetables every week. Small shares are the same size as medium shares, but are picked up every other week (9 total weeks) 
  • Spring green shares are either available either every week (4 boxes for $80) or every other week (2 boxes for $40)  You'll get 4 weeks of greens which may include lettuce, arugula, baby kale, baby chard, and some asian greens.  Pick-up will be arranged depending on demand.
