What’s in a share?
Eating locally in Oregon means that the harvest reflects the seasons. The first few spring harvests are light and consist primarily of cool-weather crops. Summer harvests are substantial, bringing warm-weather fruits and vegetables. The fall is marked by a great abundance and diversity of crops.
In a typical season, you can expect to quantities to vary as a result of unpredictable environmental factors. Here is the list of Projected Crops for 2021.
We believe that good food is a birthright of every human being.
As farmers for a more just and beautiful world, it is our aim to grow the highest quality foods. To make our produce more widely available to all people we offer payment plans for our CSA memberships as follows:
- Payment in full
- 5 Monthly payments starting at sign-up
- 2 payments with ½ at sign-up and ½ two months later
- SNAP is also accepted and we participate in the Double Up Food Bucks Program.
- Financial assistance available on a first come, first serve basis from our “Food for All” program.
Anyone with SNAP benefits, or whose children are eligible for free lunch at school, can qualify for a discount on the price of a CSA share. This “Food For All” fund is paid for by a small portion of each paid CSA membership and by other direct donations. We operate on a first-come-first-served basis until the funds are gone.
