Fresh, Local and Non-Certified Organic Produce
Organically Grown – Environmentally Friendly – Locally Distributed
Cheryl and Dave Walker, proprietorsOur Mission: We, at Cloverside Farms, believe that it is important to be good stewards of our environment and good citizens of our community. We strive to work in harmony with nature to produce good tasting foods using organic and sustainable farming practices. We work to be a positive force for our neighbors in our local economy. We hope to become a resilient operation by continuing to improve our knowledge and technique from growing season to growing season. Through Community Supported Agriculture we seek to build enduring partnerships. We support our community’s need to access fresh food and local products and provide an alternative to long distance food distribution. We appreciate the investment our shareholders make in our farm. As their personal farmers, we do our best to represent their interests with hard work and good farming decisions. We seek to maintain an inquisitive nature and work diligently to increase our knowledge with respect to our farm, the products we raise and the methods we use. It is important to us that we share our learning with others, in the hope that more persons will support sustainable methods in all that they do. What is a CSA? In the subscription model, CSA members buy a share of the farming operation which entitles them to a variety of produce every week during the growing season. The customer receives freshly picked, locally grown food from someone they know and can talk to. They are provided information on how the farm operates and are given the opportunity to reconnect with the land and their food sources. Share holders take on some of the risk and rewards of the growing season, receiving produce as it ripens. Members share in bumper crops as well as crop failures. In short, share holders are investing in the farm and are hiring us as their personal farmers. How does this work? Subscribers come to specified locations each week during the growing season to pick up their allotment of produce. Typically, there are 20 deliveries during the growing season from June through October. What is in a share? You can expect to receive 5-12 different types of produce each week, depending on the season. A typical large share is designed to feed a vegetarian family of two to three or a non-vegetarian family of four to six. This equates to 5 to 20 pounds of food per week depending on the season and crops being delivered.
