CSA share
CSA Summer Premier, 2nd and 4th Thurs. Hayward and Delivery Route, 11 Pickups


Out of stock

Fresh greens and herbs, garden veggies, seasonal fruits, and a specialty item, this CSA Premier share (formerly called the Farm Share) from our farm includes 8 unique items for each pickup! Sized like a “half share” that fits well into a grocery sack, this offering works great for a 2-3 person family. If you are really into eating veggies or have a bigger family, you may wish to double up. This offering pairs well with the CSA Select, so you can custom choose additional items from the e-store to coordinate with your pickup times or on additional dates. All shares are packed just the day before delivery, so you know you’re receiving the freshest offering from our farm. CSA members see the greatest variety of offerings from the farm, plus a weekly newsletter with recipe-yay! Specialty items may include eggs, fruits, ancient grains bakery, jams, and other fun treats. This share does not include meat. If you have a food allergy PLEASE include this in your order notes, so we can make appropriate swaps for you. (This is for actual allergies, not an “I don’t like” list). We know you’ll taste the difference with fresh, local, clean foods raised right here on our farm or our partner farms. Join our CSA family!

This delivery route will be on 2nd and 4th Thursdays. Towns on this delivery route include Hayward, Minong, Spooner, Rice Lake, Chippewa Falls, Menomonie, and Eau Claire.

Aquaponics: Biodynamic, Healthy Foods All Year Round

Nestled beside our Farmstead Creamery (and built the same year, 2012) is our farm’s aquaponics greenhouse.  Aquaponics is a unique, symbiotic relationship between fish, beneficial bacteria, and crop plants, which allows our farm to grow food all year.  Our tilapia fish enjoy constantly-flowing fresh waters cleaned by the roots of the plants, and the plants utilize the nutrient rich water from the fish to grow and flourish.  The greenhouse environment naturally shelters the delicate crops we grow from storms, pests, predators, and pathogens, creating succulent, delicious, and tender produce.  This greenhouse has revolutionized our ability to offer fresh, local, and biosecure greens and herbs throughout the year, as well as delicious and clean fillets of fish.  Enjoy the bounty all year right here!
