We Grow, U-Pick

EARTHseed Farm has sold out of our 2021 U-Pick Memberships!

 

We are excited to host a  Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program.  Families or individuals can purchase a seasonal membership in order to join us at the farm. Then you'll make an appointment for your family or group to come pick what's in season through our U-Pick program, on weekends during July-Nov 2021. In the U-Pick program, you harvest, we weigh, and you pay by the pound. We are happy to be able to share the bounty and the experience of the harvest with our community in this way!

For the 2021 CSA Season, we are limiting capacity at the farm. We are grateful to say that we have sold out of our 2021 memberships. We will also maintain an active wait-list should more shares become available later in the season. If you cannot join us in person and you would still like to support us, we ask that you make a tax deductible donation of $50 to our brand new non-profit arm of EARTHseed Farm. Your thoughtful gift will help us carry out our permaculture design mission. Thank you for the many ways you support our farm, our work, and our community.
