Secure a Membership in our 9 Week Spring 2017 CSA
Willow Wood Farm and Jackie’s …Naturally have teamed up to offer a 9 week vegetable, Microgreens and free-range egg Spring/Summer CSA. Shareholders will receive weekly boxes of naturally grown fresh produce, Microgreens & eggs.
We are now accepting 15 members on a first-come, first-served basis.
What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture! You, the shareholder, buy a share in the farmer’s products and pick up a weekly box of yummy goodies from our farms. Our 2017 Spring/Summer CSA will run for nine weeks, from May 2nd to June 27th. Pickup will be at the Burnsville Health & Nutrition store on South Main Street on Tuesdays from 2:00 – 4:00. You are welcome to find someone to share a box with you or sign up for a half-share and pick up a box every other week if you prefer.
How much will it cost? Just under $30 per week! And you will know exactly where your food comes from and exactly how it is grown or produced.
Your weekly CSA box will contain a combination of what is available for the growing season. Plus, we only grow naturally – no pesticides or fertilizers not approved by organic certification. Some of the products you might see in your weekly box are:
- Free range eggs (non-GMO & non-soy feed)
- Cabbage and/or chinese cabbage and Pak Choy
- Kale and/or other spring greens (turnip, mustard, beet greens)
- Lettuces and salad blends
- Tomatoes, peppers, green beans, cucumbers, eggplant, squash**
- Radishes and/or peas and pea pods
- And perhaps an occasional treat like baked goods!
** Please note: We grow with the season, so you will be eating with the season – the healthiest way! No tomatoes in May and no kale at the end of June. That’s fake, greenhouse produced food and that’s not what we’re about.
