Spring has officially begun, and April is right around the corner! The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and the view outside my office window is absolutely beautiful. We’re all looking forward to the start of the season, and we cannot wait to tag along on your food journey this year.
We Still Have Shares Available this Season!
It’s not too late to reserve your share! If you or someone you know is interested in fresh, organic produce from a biodynamic farm this year, jump on over to our website to reserve a share. We have both Standard and Extended Season shares available, with delivery sites in Eugene, Springfield, Portland, Florence, Mapleton, Veneta, Noti, Reedsport, and Coos Bay. (Please note, Reedsport and Coos Bay are Standard Season only.) We’d be pleased to have you!
Account Balances will go out this Month
We’re getting closer to the beginning of the season now, and this month, I will be sending out more information regarding your accounts, site hosts, share information, delivery dates, etc. For those paying by the start of the season on the full or half-payment schedule, please note the due date for the the first installment of May 15, 2022. For those on the monthly payment schedule, the first payment is due by June 1, 2022.
We are pleased to say we are once again accepting SNAP payments and working with the Double-Up Food Bucks program for those who qualify. If you have SNAP benefits and would like to pay for your share by that method, please reach out to the farm if you haven’t already and let us know so we can get you set up with the program. We will need both your SNAP card number and your benefit day, as well as your contact information to complete your application.
Please note: The website is a new system and it sends out emails for unpaid balances automatically. While you’re more than welcome to pay the balance on the website’s schedule, you’re also welcome to pay by our set deadlines without penalty. If you have any questions about your account, what you owe, or payment due dates, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected]

What’s Going on at the Farm?
Right now, Chris, Shannon, and the crew have been busy in the greenhouse and the fields these last couple months! Onions, potatoes, lettuce. All sort of vegetables are going in these days, and Shannon is following a strict seeding schedule as she and the crew are getting everything ready for the upcoming season. The greenhouse is full and it all looks great!
We are so excited to get things going this year, and we cannot wait to have you join us. Only two more months until the 2022 CSA Season starts. We hope you enjoy Spring and are looking forward to June as much as we are!
