Support sustainable farming and receive fresh, organic produce every week!
Benefits of a CSA
Zestful Gardens CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) members:
- receive the freshest produce possible
- develop a relationship with a local farmer
- participate in events on the farm and support sustainable farming
- receive a weekly share of 6 -10 fresh items, harvested that morning and selected from over 80 different varieties grown on the farm
Support sustainable farming
Community Supported Agriculture is an opportunity for people to buy the freshest produce possible, develop a relationship with a local farmer, and take control of the food distribution system.
You pre-pay for a share of the season’s harvest in the winter to meet the farmer’s operating expenses. In return for your investment, Zestful Gardens share members receive a steady supply of edible dividends weekly throughout the growing season. As a Zestful Gardens Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) member you also share the risk with the farmer. There is no guarantee that any crop will succeed, but at the same time, with over 80 varieties planted, the chances are high that the member’s investment will pay off! People who recognize the value of investment in their local economies are establishing a direct relationship with the small scale farmer who nurtures their food. Thousands of CSA’s are growing nationwide, reorganizing a small part of the food distribution system.
Choose your CSA
Our Main Season CSA runs from June through October, but spring, fall, winter and year-round shares are available on a limited basis.
The Main Season CSA can be perfect for one healthy vegetarian appetite or for a family of four depending on how frequently you cook. Some people like to split their share with a neighbor or friend. A small share is also available.
CSA Members may also buy add-ons such as eggs, greens, fruit (from Okanogan Producers Marketing Association) and meat.
Shares are available either at the farm Tuesdays from 3pm-7pm or at our in town pick up site Tuesdays from 3pm-6pm. Boxing is also an option ($5 fee), with pick up at the farm at your convenience.
