Our CSA is the heart of our farm, providing strong roots in our community, giving stability to the farm, and allowing us to practice the farming arts with the highest ideals. Community Supported Agriculture at its root is the reconnection of people to their food, to the farms where it is grown, and to the people that grow it. Through the direct support of a local farm, the shareholder gains the freshest possible local seasonal eating. Using Biodynamic and organic methods, we grow and raise our food and flowers with the utmost care, without the use of any synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

We have a flock of over 300 heritage breed chickens that provide us with delicious and nutritious eggs. These are some happy, healthy girls. We move our chickens onto new pasture often, so they always have a fresh supply of green grass and yummy bugs. Their pasture diet is supplemented only with compost scraps and certified non-GMO feed, and tested to be free of pesticide and fertilizer residues. Come out and meet the ladies!
We are raising heritage Gloucester Old Spot x Duroc pigs on the farm. Our pigs spend their days enjoying each other’s company under the shade of the trees or rooting around in the grass. We use the pigs to help us prepare new areas for planting; those snouts are excellent tillers. They are fed organic grain along with a bounty of scraps from our gardens.
