FALL 2017 CSA Information

This fall, help support local farmers through your participation in the Southwest Farm Fresh Multi-Farm CSA!  In return, we’ll supply you with a box of fresh, delicious, and interesting farm products from mid-October to early December. Prolong the season’s local fresh produce by joining our program.

The acronym CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a term coined in the 1980s that describes a system where the eating public buys into the operation of a farm in return for a supply of food.  In this case, you’re supporting the well-being of 20 farms across southwestern Colorado and northwestern New Mexico.  We’re real family farms, too; no green-washed corporate real estate developments or multi-million-dollar hobby farms here.  We’re trying to make good work pay, and with your help, we can.

2017 CSA DETAILS:

Dates:

7 weeks, October 20 through December 8th, skipping Thanksgiving week

***FRIDAY IS PICKUP DAY!!!

Pickup location:

Four Seasons Greenhouse, 26650 Road P, Dolores, CO 81323

Price:

$280 (Veggie only)

The Veggies:

Each week you’ll get a box with 8 to 10 items worth an average of $40.  Our customers say that a box is good for about three to four people, or two serious veggie lovers.  Couples often split a share with another couple, and alternate weeks. No synthetic chemicals or pesticides are applied to the products you will get in our CSA.  Even though most of our farms aren’t actually Certified Organic, the shared value of natural land stewardship is as important to us as any certification.

We expect these items to be part of the fall CSA:

Cucumbers
Cherry Tomatoes
Lettuce Mix
Kale
Broccoli
Chard
Sunflower microgreens
Winter Squash
Carrots
Parsnips
Garlic
Yellow Onions
Beets
Apples
Leeks
Spinach
Radishes
Kohlrabi
Sunchokes

The Weekly Experience:

We’ll send you a weekly newsletter a couple days in advance of pickup, telling you what’s in the box, what the farmers are up to, and some recipe ideas.  Then all you’ve gotta do is show up on Friday at Four Seasons during business hours (9-5 PM), collect your share, and cross your name off the list.
