Here are our CSA options for 2019:
Community Supported Agriculture is a fantastic way for people who want fresh local produce. CSA members support the farms by buying seasonal “shares” that provide them with fruits, vegetables and other farm products. Members receive boxes of farm fresh goodies every week during the growing season. All farms are non-GMO and deliver May-October.
Please contact the farm directly via their websites to learn more and sign up:
· Tantre Farm (www.tantrefarm.com) is a Certified Organic farm located in Chelsea. They will be dropping off at the Plymouth Store on Wednesday mornings. Shares will be outside on the north side of the building. This will be a “self-serve” pickup spot, so please check off your name on the clipboard, follow the instructions on the white board, and take a paper newsletter if needed. Pure Pastures staff can answer limited questions. Shares will not be refrigerated, so please pick up shares promptly (especially on hot days!) to enjoy your produce at its freshest. Pure Pastures is not responsible for shares left unclaimed, unless prior arrangements have been made. A full share is $630 and is the largest of the three. They do not offer a ½ share option, so consider splitting one with a friend. Members of our Summer CSA will receive 18 weeks of fresh, organic produce from your chosen location one time per week from late May through the end of September for $630. These shares are prorated for later signups throughout the season for $35/week. A "share" feeds 2 people generously or a family of 4 with small children. If you are interested in splitting your share, but cannot find someone to split it with, let us know and we may be able to pair you with someone. We grow a large variety of crops, so you'll be able to try new flavors, textures, and types of produce, in addition to discovering what it means to eat locally and seasonally. Final payments are due on May 1, unless other arrangements are made.·
Prochaska Farms (www.prochaskafarms.com) is located in Tecumseh; they will be dropping off at the Dearborn store on Tuesdays at 3:00. Shares run from $273 - $476 (1/2 share vs full share)
· City Commons (www.citycommonscsa.com) is a co-op of 7 urban farms located in Detroit. The farms use organic and sustainable practices. Pickup at Dearborn store on Saturdays. They are offering a ½ share (pick up every other week) for $290. EBT is accepted. Flower shares are also available for $60 (8 weeks of beautiful bouquets) They have added another flower farmer this year, so consider a flower share.
Don’t delay, shares sell out quickly! We are proud to have such a great selection for you again this year. For between $12-$32 per week, you get a basket of fresh produce for 20 weeks! (10 weeks for City Commons) What a deal!
