The club is full! No spots remain for the 2019 season.
Come early to the Richland Park Farmers Market to enjoy our greens all summer long!
A summertime CSA for people who love salad as much as we do!
We want to guarantee salad greens and fixin's to our most loyal customers during the summer months when this kind of produce is hard to come by. We offer club members a guarantee on our greens at a discounted rate for providing capital dollars at the beginning of the season when the farm needs it most. We hope you will see the mutual benefit and join a community that helps us expand our greens-growing operation in 2019.
What are the details?
$144 buys a 12 week membership, valued at a retail price of $180. That's a 20% discount!
CSA pickup will be every Saturday from June 22 to September 14,at the Richland Park Farmers Market from 9 a.m.—12:30 p.m. We will skip the Saturday after July 4.
We accept Venmo payments, cash, or check.
What's in the weekly CSA?
A few different greens, collectively worth $15.
Our Spring Mix with Edible Flowers, arugula, power greens, and gem lettuces will be in regular rotation. Fixin's such as sunflower shoots, radishes, tomatoes, spicy mustard greens, and more will be included as they're available. Bunches of cooking greens such as kale, chard, or mizuna may make an appearance.
Occasionally, we will offer a "super share" when we have more food than we can sell. This is usually radishes, head lettuce, peppers, etc.
What else do you get?
A Sounding Stone Farm reusable tote bag, woot!
How do you know if this is the right CSA for you?
You love to eat salads and fresh greens all summer long.
You want to support a female farmer who values organic practices.
You want to guarantee you get greens but still want the flexibility of shopping around at the farmers market.
You've always wanted to be in a club.
What exactly do you mean by "organically grown"? Are you Certified Organic?
Sounding Stone Farm follows organic practices. We never spray our greens and flowers, not even with OMRI-certified products. Insect netting is used to control pests. Weeds are controlled with our hands, hoes, a flame weeder, and silage tarps. However, we are not certified by the USDA.
What if I will be out of town one week and can't pick up my share?
With a few days advance notice, we can move your share to another week when you'll be available to pick up.
Will I be reimbursed if the farm experiences crop failure?
We will refund your share if we can't deliver for a week or two. In the unlikely event that we experience major crop failure— say a tornado or hailstorm kills everything in the garden—you will not be refunded since part of participating in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is sharing the risk inherent in producing food. We do our utmost to ensure that crops are safe, clean, and healthy!
Can I visit the farm?
Absolutely! Please email Caroline to schedule a time to visit. Kids are welcome too.
