We believe strongly in the CSA model of farming and have been offering this to our community since 2011. In return for pre-purchasing one of our plant shares, you receive heavy discounts off of retail pricing and gain free access to our surplus plants near the end of the planting season (mid-June). Our plants are grown in a sustainable setting in our greenhouses at Windy Ridge Farm. We use organic soils and fertilizers and do not apply pesticides of any kind. We are certified organic with Baystate Organic Certifiers. Our focus is on open-pollinated and heirloom varieties. We do offer several tried and true hybrid varieties as well. Choosing cultivars that perform well in this growing climate is a priority.
How does it work?
You sign up to receive one of our three different share size options (see below) by April 15th. We do all of the growing and tending for you and you receive your plants in two segments, one for early season cool weather crops (around May 1st) and one for warm season crops ( around May 25th) Pickups occur at the two area Farmer’s Markets we attend; Downtown Pittsfield, Berkshire Mall, at the farm, or we can deliver directly to your garden. (small delivery fees may apply) You are allowed to select your own varieties within each plant category. Substitutions can be made if you are not fond of certain vegetables.
