CSA Membership

How does it work?  At the most basic level, you'll be able to pick-up a box at your chosen site on designated weeks.  How often you pick up  and the amount of produce depends on the type of share you purchase.   We offer a variety of share types during three different parts of the CSA Season: Spring  (April 28-June 2; 4 total boxes), Summer (June 23-Sept 8; 12 total boxes), and Fall (mid-September-mid October; 2 total boxes).  Boxes typically contain 6-10 types of produce, with Spring boxes dominated by lettuce and other early greens, Summer by fresh beans, tomatoes, summer squash, and other hot weather vegetables, and Fall by root vegetables, dried beans, winter squash and cool weather greens.  Large share boxes usually have about 1.5 times the amount of produce as the other shares. You can choose to receive a box every week or every other week during the season.  In Summer we also offer a FLEX share that allows you to opt out of 2 weeks and designate 2 weeks you definitely want a share.   

Pick-up times and sites:  Shares will be available for pick-up  Wednesdays late afternoon/early evening either at the farm just south of Menomonie, WI or at 885 Laurel Ave in St. Paul, MN.

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.   If you sign up early, you can make requests for specific produce you'd like to receive!  Assuming great weather conditions and minimal depradation by pests, members may receive the following during each of the three seasons:

  • SUMMER share types are:
    • Large $385.  For larger households, sharing with others, or for those that like vegetables.  During the peak summer season, members may receive up to a bushel of produce.  (12 boxes)
    • Medium  $315.   For smaller households who like having fresh produce available throughout the week. Members will typically receive a 1/2 bushel of produce.  (12 boxes)
