EAT LIKE royalty ALL SUMMER LONG
By joining our CSA, you are agreeing to receive a "share" of our local farm-fresh produce in the form of weekly boxes distributed throughout the summer. Your payment, made prior to the growing season, is an act of faith that we, as your farmer, will make good on our pledge to provide you with a consistent variety of quality veggies. We use the start-up capital for seed and other supplies to get the gardens into full swing, from our fields to your forks.

Our shares amount to 18 boxes over the course of 20 weeks, from the beginning of June through mid October. This accounts for two "break weeks," which we schedule prior to the start of each season. Our boxes are not customized. Whatever is ready for harvest is what you get! We try to emphasize the primary crops (like beans, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions) with some secondary crops (like kale, radish, beets, kohlrabi) and a few obscure crops (like okra, Asian greens, fennel, eggplant). We take the time to write up a newsletter describing what's in your box, ideas for storage and preparation, and farm updates.
We currently service Freeman, Yankon, and Sioux Falls, SD. Freeman and Yankton members pick up their share at farmers market. Sioux Falls members pay for direct delivery. Details HERE.
The total cost of the CSA, which is paid upon signing up, will be based on which delivery/pick up option and share size you select.
