We are a family owned & operated CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) located just north of Springfield, MO.
We provide our members with weekly shares of produce based on their membership agreement. Members will receive their weekly shares either on-site or at a Springfield location predisclosed to them.
We do not support the use of GMO crops. Our use of safe & natural growing practices free us from the conventional use of harmful herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a term used to describe a special partnership between farmers and customers. Customers, also known as "shareholders," receive a weekly share of fresh, seasonal, chemical-free, non-genetically-engineered vegetables for an entire growing season.
In a CSA operation, shareholders and farmers share the risks of small-scale farming (such as unexpected weather conditions and pest damage) as well as benefits such as bumper crops (unexpected crop surplus).
What is the Duration of a Growing Season?
The growing season will include the months May – September. Produce yields will vary each month.
