CSA Program

*Memberships for the 2021 Season are now open!*

K7 Farm is continuing our CSA program that launched in 2020. We are happy to provide home grown produce to our local community on a weekly basis starting in July. Pickup will be at the farm in Concord once weekly.

Members will also receive 10% off additional vegetables, including bulk vegetables for canning.

Cost: $200 per season. This includes a box weekly for 10 weeks, each box valued at around $20 each including a variety of whatever produce is available that week. I can not tell you exactly what will be in each box until the week of, but it will be whatever is ready to be picked from the farm garden.

What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture. By definition: a system in which a farm operation is supported by shareholders within the community who share both the benefits and risks of food production.

When you join our CSA as a member, you become part of our farm family. When our garden begins to produce, you are able to pick up a box of produce that is super fresh – picked the day before or the day of distribution! There is no picking before ripe, passing through many hands, traveling many miles, bland produce here. It is all grown on the farm!

If you know me, you know I have gardened for about 16 years with a huge emphasis on growing food and feeding my family well. Nowadays, my garden is grown to feed both your family and mine, and it’s all treated the exact same way – no pesticides or herbicides, hand picking of most pests, everything done to encourage healthy soil (which will grow healthy plants). Produce is picked when ripe and flavorful. We don’t grow typical varieties that are grown for the supermarket, much of our produce is heirloom and so much more flavorful.

Our garden has grown over the years and is now nearly 4 acres. I tend it, with the help of my children. We are a small, family run farm with a big passion of growing food and lots of it.

You pay for your share, or membership, before the season. This helps me have the funds needed to buy all the seed and equipment I will need ahead of the season. You will pick up a box of produce (consisting of whatever happens to be ripe at the time) that carries a minimum value averaging $20 per box. Some weeks are about average, but during the plentiful weeks of our peak season, the value of these boxes may go higher but of course you don’t pay any more. There are always “extras” to grab each week to enhance your box that you can take your pick from, but you don’t have to take them if you don’t want the extra food. Excess produce is available at a member discount and my CSA members have first dibs on excess produce before it goes to the public.

What we are growing: Your boxes may include vegetables such as celery, onions (bulb and scallions/green/bunching onions), tomatoes (slicers, cherry and paste), peppers (minis, bell, banana, hot), tomatillo, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, cabbage, spinach and salad greens (spinach, lettuces, kale, collards), herbs, peas, beans (green, wax, purple), kohlrabi, squash (zucchini, yellow, butternut, buttercup, acorn), pie pumpkins, radishes, turnips, sweet corn, cucumbers (slicing and pickling), soup beans, okra, and bonus flower bouquets as available. All produce is picked fresh and is offered as it is available. Other produce may be available also.

How we are growing: Working with the biology that should be found in soil, we aim to create a sustainable soil food web that nourishes our plants with the right amount of nutrition on demand, in plant accessible form. This method of growing greatly reduces weeds and the presence of pests or disease while allowing plants to thrive without the addition of chemical means. Most of our garden beds are no-dig. We do not use commercial fertilizers or chemicals. The organic matter we add to our garden beds includes aged compost we create on site and also aged manures from our livestock or local farms.

How to Sign Up: Contact me at sarah@k7farm.com. I will send you a member agreement to read and fill out, then you can pay via paypal, mail a check, or drop off cash.

Your email will automatically be added to the member-only newsletter. As the season approaches, reminders will be set out and a weekly email will be sent out with ideas for using your produce, additional farm products available, and any special member-only specials and events. Your email and contact information will never be sold.
