SLO Farmers Custom CSA
Have you been wanting to improve your health and that of your family? You know this means decreasing processed food and increasing fresh vegetables in your diet. You may see a farm CSA as a great way of doing this, but hesitant to sign up because you might not like all of the veggies in a pre-built CSA.
We have the solution for you!
We are excited to offer our first vegetable CSA starting this season, and it will be customizable! This means that you can swap out veggies on our online platform, add any additions for a given week, and pause your account any time for vacation.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a movement started in the 1980s to provide organic farmers and people who wish to support local and organic foods a way to connect and build a stronger community. This is done by directly supporting the farmer’s efforts to provide local, fresh food to their community, which also helps to build a healthy local economy.
You may ask, well then why don’t we just cut out this SLO Farmer’s Co-op middle-man and have us buy directly with the farmers? Good question. We farmers have built the Co-op together from the ground up to share the role of local marketing and distribution for our food. We are able to employ some great people with coordination and marketing expertise so that the farmers can focus on farming. It’s a win-win-win.
- Farmers receive a greater income by working together
- We create local jobs within SLO.
- You are still connected with your farmer at pickup sites, and at farm events, which we will be scheduling soon! You also gain the ability to pick the produce you want and don’t want in your share, which is not usually an option with a single farm CSA.
Full Circle Community Farm (Green Bay/Appleton/Manitowoc) and Flying Tractor Farm (Door/Kewaunee Counties) are the two main farms working together this pilot year to provide you with fresh, high quality vegetables, herbs, and fruit. The farm closest to your pickup or delivery location is your partner farm, through whom you will be getting the majority of your vegetables.
20 Week Season: Mid-June to Mid-October
Standard Share $700 ($35/week)
- Variety of 9 - 12 vegetables each week. Feeds a family of 3 to 5, depending on the amount veggies your family typically eats.
Small Share $500 ($25/week)
- Variety of 8 - 10 vegetables each week. Feeds a family of 1 to 3, depending on the amount veggies your family typically eats.
Egg Share add-on $90 ($4.50/dozen/week)
We will pre-fill your online cart each week with $35 (Standard Share) or $25 (Small Share) worth of seasonal produce, depending on which signup option you choose. You can then login anytime Thursday - Saturday to edit your cart. You can remove anything you don't want and add lots of additional produce, meat, eggs, honey, and other items from a large additional selection (minimum weekly order of $20).
