What is a CSA?
A CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA is much different than going to the local grocery store and buying your vegetables. It is a direct partnership between you, the consumer, and our farm. CSA members pay in advance for a share of the upcoming harvest and are ensured quality local produce, and we the farm, are ensured a consistent market. Produce is harvested direct from our fertile vegetable fields located along the Colorado River, just east of Grand Junction in Palisade, Colorado.
At Field To Fork we offer a "free choice" CSA. You Choose whats in your basket. We offer a 300.00 10 week punch pass beginning April and Ending December. We grow many crops earlier and later in our grow tunnels and harvest produce during all four seasons. Most CSA members join for 15-30 weeks and the punch pass gives a little more flexibility to not feel pressure if they miss a pickup.
The is a limited membership, currently all CSA spots are full. Our CSA new member CSA shares are sold via a lottery system. Membership will be available to new members and available to new members on this lottery.The lottery will be conducated January 15 and the winner will be a notified shortly after.
CSA pickups are open house style. You can come anytime during the pickup hours. As your farmers, we harvest your food all day, then we set it out all pretty in a buffet style setting, like your own personal farmers market. You grab an empty basket and fill it up with whatever you want. If you want more tomatoes, and no turnips – that’s all you. You choose what you put in your basket. Once your basket is full, you are done! We do it all over again the following week.
**Being a CSA member allows you to develop a relationship with the farmers that grow your food and with the soil, air and water with which it’s grown. You are also developing a more intimate relationship with the peculiarities of the farm’s unique growing conditions — which are affected by altitude, weather, climate, etc. We are not providing a grocery store on wheels or a food delivery service. Your commitment is much deeper than that.
