All of the vegetables and apples grown on our farm are certified organic.
We raise about 25 different vegetables for CSA members, emphasizing staple favorites such as lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, onions, peppers, and squash. You will enjoy each vegetable when it is ripe, at its peak of flavor and freshness. Look at the chart to the right to see what's ripe in different seasons.
On each delivery day, you can trade vegetables from your own box for other items from a swap box at the delivery site. This allows you to partially customize your box.
We help you enjoy your produce:
• Our weekly newsletters includes delicious, practical recipes.
• On our website you can search for recipes from our past newsletters.
• You can opt to receive an email before each delivery forecasting the items in your next box.

Only members who choose our apple option receive apples.
We grow apple varieties which bear flavorful fruit and are also resistant to the diseases that make organic apple growing challenging in the Midwest. We do not raise Honeycrisp, Gala, Delicious and other common supermarket varieties, which are not well adapted to being grown organically in our humid climate. (Virtually all organic supermarket apples are grown in eastern Washington, where the dry climate protects the trees from disease.) All of our varieties are intended for eating fresh. We emphasize those which have a balance of sugar and acid (not very tart and not very sweet) and which have rich, complex flavors and aromas. The chart below shows our varieties:
