Celebrate the return of fresh, local produce with our Spring CSA. Bursting with an array of tender greens, head lettuces, herbs, scallions, and salad radishes, you’ll have the makings for a delicious salad every week. As the fields warm, shares will fill out with the first of the season’s carrots, sweet salad turnips, and (weather permitting) sugar snap peas, strawberries, and beets. Weekly share values range from $20-50. Shareholders also receive weekly emails with cooking tips, recipes, and updates about our farm, farmers, and farming practices. Shareholders fill their own bags from a set list of freshly harvested crops
Distributions are from 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm and run from May 16th-June 20th. Pick-up location is at the Farm Stand near the admissions area; watch for a welcome e-mail and your first weekly newsletter from our growers on Tuesday May 15th with additional info and recipes. Please bring your own bags and/or boxes to pack your veggies in.
Growing Practices- We believe that healthy food begins with healthy soil, and healthy soil depends on the vitality of surrounding ecosystems. We farm with the health of our adjacent woods, meadows, ponds, and vernal pools firmly in mind by actively stewarding these natural areas for birds and other wildlife. We follow all organic farming guidelines, and are committed to sustainable soil management by including rest periods in our crop rotation and by spreading our own compost over fields to promote soil fertility—compost made at Drumlin Farm from our humanely-raised livestock. We never use any chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Purchasing a CSA share at Drumlin Farm not only supports our farming program, but also Mass Audubon’s overall mission to protect Massachusetts’ biodiversity and ecosystems.
