Kristy's Barn CSA 2017

When you become a member of our CSA, you are purchasing a “share” of our harvest and assuming some of our agricultural risks. This year, Kristy’s Barn will be offering limited memberships in two, Community Supported Agriculture, (CSA) enterprises. 

8 REASONS TO JOIN OUR CSA:

  1. Nutrient-dense foods: Whether nutrition has always been part of your diet, or is a new concept, our CSA is a great way to take the stress out of shopping.
  2. New flavors: You never know what new flavors you will discover! 
  3. Local: Why haul food hundreds of miles when you can get it in your own backyard? Plus fresher always tastes better.
  4. Creative cooking: New food means new recipes! 
  5. Hefty haul: If it is a great year, you’ll get LOTS of food! (2016 averaged 11lbs a week, with over 5 varieties!) Great for freezing and eating year-round! 
  6. Diversity: We do our best to diversify our crops to ensure that you have enough in your baskets and on your plates.
  7. Pick-up food and friends: Weekly pickups are a great way to meet fellow CSA-ers!
  8. Sharing is caring: If your basket is too full, feel free to share it with a neighbor, friend, or set it in the basket for our local food pantry.

CSA Risks:

As with any agricultural enterprise, weather conditions dictate the success or failure of production.  As a CSA member you are accepting some of the risk associated with agricultural production. We cannot guarantee that all crops will successfully reach maturity. We are a low input producer and use limited spray in our production.  We will do our best and use accepted agricultural practices to make this CSA a success.
