Harvest Roots Farm is three friends and one and a half acres who believe in intensively growing clean and accessible food with focus and concern of our ecological and social impact. By the way of implementing principles of permaculture, farming becomes about both internal and external cultivation; as the plants and animals on the farm grow and evolve, so too will our ideals and philosophies – we see this as true ecological soundness.
We are incredibly excited about this year! For 2014, our CSA is composed of both a spring and fall share spanning mid-April to mid-June and mid-September to mid-November. At ten weeks in each part of the CSA season, that is twenty weeks for $600. *Sliding scale and payment plans are available because we deeply feel that true food accessibility is about accommodating a diversity of income streams.
What is a CSA? A CSA, or community supported agriculture is a newspaper subscription of food, so to speak. In short, each week you will pick up your produce box (half bushel) at a designated, central location (to be determined). You become more than just a customer and we, more than producers. You are enabled the opportunity to invest in a share of the farm’s operation while simultaneously celebrating a bounty of clean food and community in exchange.
What to expect for Spring: Many varieties of vegetables such as Detroit Dark Red or Cylindra beet, Fava beans, Red Mammoth cabbage, Parisienne and Cosmic Purple carrots, kohlrabi, leeks, Easter Egg radishes, and several different types of collards, kale, swiss chard and chinese cabbages. These are but a sampling but expect a large diversity of heirloom variety vegetables.
What to expect for Fall: Many of the similar crops in the Spring share but with additions like Long Island Brussel Sprouts, sweet potatoes, summer and winter squash, fall peppers, turnips and parsnips.
