PLEASE READ - November 30, 2014 - we have decided to cancel our 2015 vegetable CSA. Long story short, the 2014 growing season was such a disaster, we are going to take a year off and work on a few issues. We are going to focus on our hiring practices (mainly), soil conditions, drainage and other critical items. Please check back for updates and more information - Thank You!
