Save 30% on your garden seedlings with a seedling CSA share!
Our Farm offers you the opportunity to pre-purchase our amazing vegetable and herb starts for your summer gardens. We believe strongly in the CSA model of farming and are now offering this option to our community for their plant starts. 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.
