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. We use natural and sustainable farming methods, focusing on integrity, quality and variety.
This year we are adding DAIRY and PORK. Dairy will be on a week to week ordering process. The first time you order dairy you will be required to sign a contract. This is due to state laws about milk.
Pick up CSA shares in Columbus Park, Prairie Village, Lenexa, Garmin (employees only) or Children’s Hospital Association (employees only) on Wednesday evenings.
