As your farmer, I am committed to helping to build our community, providing fresh and healthy food to you and being a responsible steward of the farmland and our ecosystem. The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model is an innovative way for you to receive fresh vegetables each week and be a part of the Deri Farm community. Healthy vegetables come from healthy soil. Using organic farming methods, I am not just restoring the nutrients in the soil, but improving its quality for our future.

Back from a week long trip to Ohio to celebrate my grandfather’s 100th birthday, we are back in to the thick of things with the CSA shares.  Each week I worry that I have to “rob Peter to pay Paul” when we are harvesting vegetables.  There’s also a chance that things left in the field for the next week may bolt or rot in the summer heat.  This week was a strong share week, but perhaps I’m a little behind overall because I did take a week off.  Once again, thank you to my CSA members in being patient and allowing me the week to visit with my family.

Here’s what is in the share this week for a whole share:

  • kohlrabi – 2 “bulbs” – $2
  • beets (with and without tops) – 1 pound – $3.50
  • zucchini/summer squash – 4 pounds – $10 (includes specialty varieties like patty pan, golden zucchini)
  • hakurei turnips (topped) – 1.5 pounds – $3.50
  • cucumbers (picklers and slicers) – 1.5 pounds – $3.50
  • broccoli – 2 pounds – $7
  • lettuce, head – $3
  • kale and/or chard – 1 pound – $4
  • fresh garlic – 1 large bulb – $1.50

The value for this week’s share is $38.  The total value for the season so far is $166.50.

As an added bonus, we are allowing CSA members to start picking flowers.
