National CSA Sign-up Day: Saturday, February 28th!

It may be hard to think about Spring, farmers, and fresh produce when you're shoveling your way out of the house everyday, but now is the best time to support your local farmers! 

National CSA Sign-up Day was chosen as February 28th because it is the most popular day of the entire year to sign up for a CSA share and farms from around the country are celebrating National CSA Sign-Up Day together this Saturday. Buying a CSA share in late winter is important because farmers are making the capital investments for this year’s harvest now and the CSA model means they do not need to finance these costs with costly credit.

Members of our CSA have been the key to our business growing and helping our member families work together on their land,” says Zeb Bartels, the general manager of the CRO cooperative. “CSAs give us a shot of cash to help buy seeds and supplies in the spring and they guarantee an outlet for our freshest produce throughout the summer and fall. Plus we love getting to know our customers and sharing the farm life with them. Our customers benefit by getting our best produce a day or two fresher than they can get it at the store and by getting to know the farmers who grow their food.”

Turkey Time!

 Danielle and Arlene Miller are prepping for a delicious holiday season this year, starting with pastured turkeys for your Thanksgiving feast. Their birds were raised on pasture, eating bugs and such, also fed locally grown, Non-GMO grains and organic produce scraps. They will range in size from 17-23 lbs and can be reserved and picked up at any of our current CSA pickup locations the week before the holiday.

Turkeys are $4.25/lb. Pay $30 deposit now, and you will be charged the remainder automatically upon pickup. 

Turkeys come frozen. You will not be able to choose the exact size you would like, rather they will all be between 17-23 lbs.
