Beyond Organic Produce That Tastes As Good As It Looks!
What is the csa harvest share?
It is a direct relationship between us, your Farmer, and you, the Farm Partner/Customer. Our CSA Harvest Share is a unique way to receive local, naturally grown vegetables free of any chemicals, that are picked and delivered at their freshest, most flavorful and most nutritious state. We share a commitment with our Farm Partners, pray and work very diligently to ensure that you receive a harvest portion worth celebrating every week. In a CSA, the Farm Partner and the Farmer share the risk together, as well as the rewards. Farm Partners pay in advance for a weekly share in the upcoming harvest season. This allows your farmer to make seed, and various other purchases, in cash at the beginning of the season, which must be done long before any vegetable is ready for harvest. It also allows us to plan for a specific quantity of vegetables, and keep better focused on growing better food, instead of so much marketing during the busy harvest times. In the case of severe weather and/or insect devastation, we would also share in that risk together. And the benefit to you, the Farm Partner, is a guaranteed weekly share of local, fresh, nutritious vegetables, at a discount from retail prices, along with receiving the abundant harvests along the way.
How long do harvest season's last?
Our Harvest Shares will be available for your enjoyment continuously from October thru June. That's 9 months of wonderful Fresh & Nutritious vegetables and fruits. In the past we would have a 10-12 week break between the Winter and Spring season’s harvests. But now we've chosen to keep you supplied with amazing produce for as long as our South Texas weather allows! And we are always trying to extend even further into the summer heat, so that your family AND ours can stay supplied with fresh, nutritious produce longer.
