You're not just a consumer when you join our CSA, you become a shareholder! You purchase a share of the season’s harvest in advance and give financial support by taking the risk of the season’s outcome with the farmer and insuring a stable income for the farm. Linnaea Farm in return promises to provide you, the shareholder with a bag of produce weekly, full of seasonal abundance for the duration of a harvest season. In a good year the bags will overflow with lavishness and in lean times or when things go bad you are insuring that your local farmer keeps on growing food and builds resilience to changing climate patterns and grows more skilled as a producer. A CSA farm can offer high quality produce at competitive prices by eliminating the need for distributors, wholesalers and retailers and delivering the food directly.
We’re off to a running start, with all this sunlight and the temperatures soaring for this time of the year! Trying to take things slow, as the threat of frost is ever present still. However, that said, the seeds are all here, some are in the ground, partial fields have been tilled, remay pulled out and shaken off, harvest shed is being cleaned out, and we are all looking optimistically forward to another amazing growing season! The CSA will start again this year at the end of May.
