After 28 years of growing certified organic vegetables and sharing them with members it is clear that one of the questions of our time is still
how to feed ourselves and our children good food that will nourish us all.
Food should be free of pesticides and free of herbicides that cause disease and full of nutrition with vitamins and minerals we need for our bodies to function well. We are exposed on many fronts to things we cannot control in our environment, choosing how and what to eat is one way we can actively contribute to our own health and the environment.
To grow the healthiest food we can for members and the larger community, to be good stewards of the land for future generations and to share the knowledge and experience of farming is our mission here at Lindentree Farm.
A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm is a relationship between a community of members and the farmer. You pay a fee up front when the farmer needs it most to purchase seeds and pay crew, and the farmer spends his/her/their time growing crops to feed you during the summer. You share the growing season closely, experiencing the way that weather and other conditions affect your food, and also the exuberance of bountiful and delicious crops, some of which you pick yourselves.
It is a commitment to work together.
2019 PRICE INFORMATION FOR NEW MEMBERS
OUR TRADITIONAL STRUCTURE HAS CHANGED A LITTLE.
IN ORDER TO JOIN Lindentree Farm as a new member you must pay a minimum of $400 for the season. You send us a $200 registration fee by May 1st to hold your space. The balance of $200 is due on your first pick up in June. Your money will be loaded on to a gift debit card for the season which you use here each week on your pick up day. This will allow you the flexibility to take what you want from the vegetables harvested that week and from the pick-your-own berries, beans etc in season.
If you want to spend more you have two options.
You can start the season by paying more than $400 and getting a small bonus added to your card. You must inform us with your $200 registration deposit that this is your plan and you can pay the balance on the first pick up in JUNE. You will get a 5% bonus on the extra amount above $400 that you pay by the first June pick up. You might consider paying more if you regularly eat vegetables each week. In the past our shares have cost a minimum of $800 for small shares for the full 20 week season.
Or you can add more to your card during the season.
Why are we changing? To give the members some flexibility in what they get and to give the farmers more flexibility in what they grow....
