Why join our CSA?
Happy CSA members: Each year, about 75% of our members re-join. Our year-end member survey consistently shows very high levels of satisfaction with our produce selection, quality, and value for price.
Just the right amount of produce: Our box size is a little smaller than most CSA offerings, with 7-10 different items each week. We promise to give you a good value for your dollar, but will never overwhelm you with excessive vegetables. Each week you’ll get a good mix of the best produce of the season, thoughtfully chosen to make cooking dinner easy.
Longer CSA season: We’ve invested in storage infrastructure on our farm that enables us to provide diverse vegetable offerings all the way through November. For 2018 our CSA season is 25 weeks long, and we’re always trying new varieties and new storage methods to extend the season even further.
Support our mission-driven farm: Besides growing the best possible produce, Siri and Jason are also dedicated to growing new farmers. Over the last 12 years, 10 Local Roots Farm employees have gone on to start their own farming operations. We offer a farm incubator program for employees, plus ongoing mentorship and support. Siri and Jason are also active in their service to the local food and farming community as board and committe members.
