Loyalty Farm Membership
Community Supported Agriculture?
Becoming a member of the Field To Fork farm is much different than going to the local grocery store or road side farm stand and buying your fruits and vegetables. This is a opportunity to feed your family and friends great healthy produce and cook with beautiful organic produce weekly. This is opportunity to support regenerative local agriculture in Mesa County and help feed more people in our community nutrient dense produce. Help us make change and change the way people eat.
Becoming a member to our farm is a direct partnership between you and our farm and farmers. At Field To Fork we offer a true CSA membership experience and a opportunity to purchase great local organic produce at a great price. We don't source products and everything is always harvested within 24-48 hours of being in your home. We promise to provide you with the best organic produce at peak ripeness providing the best flavor and freshness of the most nutrient dense certified organic produce grown in the native rich clay soils of our farm.
Members join in the late winter early spring and help support the farm with up front expenses. In return members receive a farm share of certified organic produce weekly May-November. We love CSA because the money has already been exchanged and we can focus on farming for you. You get to enjoy the weekly bounty with little hassle and budget concerns. We the farm and farmers are ensured a consistent customer base and rewarding relationship. Our members help make farming a little more fun and a little less challenging. Weekly shares are valued between 35.00-50.00. We like to reward our members for the early support and help you try new produce as well as provide you with the weekly staples.
Members help our farm develop new products and continue our life long education of organic farming. Fruit and Vegetables are harvested direct from our fertile fields located along the Colorado River, just east of Grand Junction in Palisade, Colorado. Members pick up at our farm produce stand on Wednesdays or at the downtown Grand Junction Farmers Market on Thursdays.
What to Expect? What do we grow?
We grow fruit and veggies and you can expect seasonal organic produce of cherries, peaches, plums, nectarines, apples, pears, watermelon, cantaloupe, lettuce, tomatoes, radish, carrots, garlic, onions, beets, cucumbers, summer squash, winter squash, sweet corn, potatoes, swiss chard, kale, cabbage, broccoli, herbs and more.
You always get to choose your own produce with our market style setup at our farm store or at the farmers market. What is great about the market style setup is if you don't want Kale you don't have to take it. If you want a few ripe tomatoes for tonight and a few less rip for later in the week you choose them. Its your choice.
We offer a flexible membership punch pass from 10 - 30 weeks. If you are busy one week and cant pick up its ok you will never loose a week. The punch pass does not expire as long as you rejoin annually. We grow many crops earlier and later in our grow tunnels and harvest produce during all four seasons. Most members join for 15-20 weeks and the punch pass gives great flexibility to not feel pressure if you missed a pickup.
This is a limited membership we don't like to over sell our CSA. Once you become a member you receive the next seasons early bird sign up special, wholesale pricing on case of items like peaches and tomatoes and a invitation to our end of season farm dinner with our partners. All members receive weekly emails of what to expect, farm updates and weekly recipes.
CSA Distribution/Pick Up Schedule for 2019 (Dates May Change)
Pickups are open house style. You can come anytime during your pickup hours. As your farmers, we harvest your food all day, then we set it out in a buffet style setting, like your own personal farmers market. We mark items on a board that shows the amount we would like you to take. Some weeks we have more of certain items and some weeks we have items that are limited. Once your basket is full, and you collected all the weekly items you are done! We do it all over again the following week.
