Our CSA is a special experience for fresh food enthusiasts of the Lynchburg and Forest area. In becoming a member of our program:
- You are supporting a family farm that cares about quality
- You know that the produce you receive was always grown by our farm in a sustainable manner (= no nasty chemicals on your food), no exceptions!
- You can support other local farms by signing up for herb, culture, chicken, or egg offerings
The 2018 CSA program runs from May 9 – November 7, with 2 weeks off in August (Aug. 8 & 15) and a vacation week of your choosing. You can sign up at any time, even after May 9; your share price will be prorated according to how many weeks are left in the season. Members pay for 24 weeks up front in full or in two installments, the first of which is due upon signing up. In return, you get a share of farm-fresh vegetables and/or a variety of local farm products for 6 months of the year! There are two pick-up options: one in in Lynchburg and one at the farm in Forest. To read more about how it works visit our CSA FAQ page.
We are super excited to be partnering up with some other local food producers this year! For the first time, you will have the option to choose to add eggs, meat, herbs, and ferments to your share (see more below). And of course we are still offering our wood-fired sourdough bread and flower arrangements.
Appomattox area customers: We are looking to expand our CSA to the Appomattox area in cooperation with Local APX Market. With enough interest, we will add a drop off location in 2018. Please indicate on the sign up form that you would be interested in this option!
