We regret to inform you that we are no longer offering our CSA model. If you would like to purchase any of our fine products, please join us at the Newport Farmers’ Market May-Oct for a great selection!
We could possibly add the CSA back into our lives in the future; especially with the COVID 19 outbreak, we are unsure of what next year may look like. Keep checking!
We are offering several products on our farm.
- CSA produce box – Season runs for 20 weeks, May 19th – September 29th
- Additional fruit box (for CSA members only.)
- Non-box items will be available to the general public, whether they have a membership or not. Items such as Local honey, locker beef or pork, and Fresh eggs when available. We also have beautiful local Gift Baskets.
- Special items such as bumper crops available for canning/freezing or other items that may become available will be listed in our weekly e-newsletter.
We also are offering two sizes of shares. For the produce box we have ‘large’ (which is our standard size for an average family) and ‘small’ (which may be suitable for a single person or a couple.)
CSA Produce boxes will be filled with seasonal fresh vegetables as they become available. There will typically be 8-12 items in each box.
Here is a list of what is likely to be found in your box as we move through the seasons.
A typical produce box might contain the following: For spring
- peas (snap)
- swiss chard
Summer boxes might contain the following:
- cherry tomatoes
- peas (shell)
- sweet peppers
- summer squash
- slicing cukes
- new potatoes
- slicing tomatoes
- sweet corn
And fall boxes may have the following items:
- winter squash
As you can see there are more varieties as the season grows and so your boxes will be fuller accordingly.
Fruit Box: This is going to be offered in addition to our CSA shares only to csa share-holders for an additional $10 per week. These boxes will contain seasonal fruits and will come from our own farm and from local farmers that we know well and who maintain our ‘clean’ farming practices. Items to expect during the proper season are as follows:
- rhubarb (May-June)
- strawberries (June-July)
- raspberries (July-August)
- huckleberries (wild)(July-August)
- melons (August)
- plums (August – September)
- apples (August – October)
- pears (October-November)
You will be able to place orders weekly via e-mail for these items as they become available, and we will deliver them with your box. These will be individually priced and are considered “add-ons”, not included in the regular CSA boxes.
- All natural, farm-fresh eggs (brown, white, and green)
- 100% pure non-pasteurized Honey raised here on our farm
- Gift Baskets filled with local crafts and foods made right near home!
- Locker Beef or Pork sold by the hanging weight.
Occasionally we will have a bumper crop available for folks who like to can, freeze, pickle, dry or put away in their own cellars. I can help you with tips, hints, recipes and the like in our weekly newsletters.
