Indian Ridge Farm & Bakery will be entering its 12th year of offering CSA shares this upcoming growing season. Our shares begin with nutritious and organic produce, and then you can add, as you wish, shares of pastured eggs, baked goods (organic bread and addictive granola), grass-fed chickens and turkeys. New this year will be the ability, in some capacity, to “customize” your box by asking for more (or less) of a particular vegetable. Our share prices are still the lowest in the region, and we intend to keep it that way. The 19-week season lasts from the week before Memorial Day Weekend to the first week in October. For more information on the CSA, check out last year’s information sheet by clicking here. While there, check out the newsletter section, which will give you a good idea of weekly happenings on the farm, including the contents of the CSA basket for that week. Lest we forget to mention, you will also receive a weekly recipe that includes items in your weekly box.
To get your appetite whetted, this was the contents of a CSA box from last August :
- Romaine lettuce
- Green and purple beans
- Green peppers
- Tomatoes for tomato shares
- Chicken for poultry shares
- Eggs for egg shares
- Bread for bakery shares
We are working hard to finalize our CSA registration information so we may begin the process. Renewing members from last season’s CSA have first dibs on shares that are available. For those of you wanting to signup for our CSA for the first time, have no fear: rumors that we’re “sold-out” are simply not true. Every year we have extra shares available to new members.
So, stay tuned as we work out the details on the upcoming season’s CSA. Registrations will begin in February!
