2017 Earth Song Farm - C.S.A. Program
(Community Supported Agriculture)
 
Support your local farmer, eat healthy and save money too!
 
 
What is a CSA Program?....
    It is a way families can partner with local farmers to get fresh, healthy, locally-grown produce. The specifics vary from farm to farm, with some also providing eggs, fruits, meat, bakery, cheese, herbs and other items.

    The basic concept is that at the beginning of the year, the CSA member purchases a share of the farm's output for the season. The member will then get a quantity of fresh produce and other items from the farm every week. It is a simple enough idea, but it’s impact has been profound. There is a growing demand for CSA’s in many areas across the country.

    The price is also discounted, so you save money over buying the same amount of organic food at the health food store or even the farmer’s market.
 
 
What is unique about the Earth Song Farm CSA?....
    Earth Song Farm uses only organic and bio- dynamic farming practices. This includes soil amendments that increase trace minerals to make our produce as nutrient-dense as possible. Never any pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, or GM (genetically modified). We grow heirloom variety produce, have truly free-ranging chickens and use greenhouses to extend our growing season. Our chickens and animals are given only organic, non-GMO feed. We have also partnered with several other local organic farms to bring you the best variety of healthy produce.
 
New CSA Format!...
We’ve listened to your concerns and suggestions. Last year, we tried a new format for the CSA program and it was a great success. Everyone liked the versitility and convenience, so we'll continue that program for this year. It’s all your choice!
       - You choose what you want.
       - You choose how much you want.
       - You can pick up at your convenience... at the farm 6 days a week, or at the Farmer’s Market in Medina on Saturday mornings.
       - Taking a vacation and don’t need anything... No loss.
       - Throwing a party... get extra.
       - Doing some canning?.... call us ahead to order larger amounts.

What food will be available?....
   If you are not used to eating seasonally, you may want to do some research. It is a bit of a transition from buying anything, anytime you want at the supermarket. This can be an educational opportunity for your family, especially the children. Talk about the cost of shipping food from California or overseas, and the disadvantage of food that is picked unripe, nutritionally deficient and probably laden with pesticides. Then discuss the advantages of eating fresh, organic, local and seasonal food as Mother Nature intended. Some people don’t know that asparagus grows in early spring, tomatoes don’t ripen until about August, or that butternut squash isn’t available until fall.
 
Here is a list of some of our seasonally available produce.
(Keep in mind that seasons will overlap to some extent and are dependent on weather conditions.)
 
Spring time.....   asparagus, peas, kale, swiss chard, lettuce, spinach, rhubarb
 
Early Summer.....   zucchini, cucumbers, radishes, beets, green beans, summer squash, strawberries
