CSA's are a great way to support your local farm and enjoy the season's bounty!
By investing in the farm early, CSA members make it possible for us to make vital purchases like seeds and mulches, as well as hire the employees needed to grow the crops before the harvest season begins. At Barrett's Mill Farm, we offer a 20-week Main Season Vegetable CSA (sold out for 2017) and a 4-week Late Fall CSA.
Late Fall Vegetable CSA
The Late Fall CSA is a similar set-up to the Main Season CSA. Members will fill a bag with vegetables of their choice each week. While there are no pick-your-own crops in the late fall, there will be a few extra items for members to take outside the bag. Pick-ups will be in the heated greenhouse attached to the farm stand. Some of the types of vegetables that may be available include carrots, beets, potatoes, winter squash, leeks, onions, shallots, garlic, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, turnips, radishes, kale, collards, cabbage, spinach and lettuce. NEW in 2017: sweet potatoes and popcorn!
2017 Late Fall CSA
$175 for 4 weeks of vegetables
October 26th - November 16th
Pick-ups are Thursdays 2 - 7pm
Main Season Vegetable CSA - SOLD OUT FOR 2017!
Barrett’s Mill Farm’s CSA is a “market style” CSA. Over the course of 20 weeks, members come to the farm stand once a week and choose from among a wide variety of vegetables to fill their CSA bag. We offer lots of choice so you can decide when you want to try something new and when you want to go home with your family’s tried and true favorites! In addition to the vegetables that will be harvested for members, there will be a set amount of Pick-Your-Own crops (such as strawberries, peas, beans, cherry tomatoes and herbs) available most weeks.
During the season, we post a weekly blog entry featuring a list of crops that we're harvesting along with recipe ideas. Check out last year's blog entries to get an idea of what is available in the CSA each week. We also encourage members to spend time on the farm in the pick-your-own fields, exchanging recipes with fellow members, or just sitting and enjoying the scenery.
Preseason investment in the farm is really important to the health of the business, so as a thank-you, members who sign up early for our CSA will receive a discount!
