Farmers in our community of small, horse-powered family farms are working together to provide shares for a 24 week CSA. From mid-May to mid-November, we supply a weekly share of FRESH VEGETABLES, including same-day-harvested SALAD CROPS, SPECIALTY MELONS, and HEIRLOOM TOMATOES. PASTURED EGGS and MEATS are offered separately. Pick up CSA shares in Columbus Park, Downtown KC, Prairie Village, or Lenexa on Thursday evenings. We use natural and sustainable farming methods, focusing on integrity, quality and variety.
