A CSA Plainly Put, Is A Share In Our Farm 
 
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Many small farms depend on their CSA programs to raise money for start up costs during the time of year that farmer's just aren't making any money. Farming is a costly business. We put every dime into the ground before anything is harvested and there are no guarantees for farmers. Risky business, huh?CSA programs are not only a way to connect farmers to their customers and vice versa, but also a way to ensure that we are producing for a good reason. Because we are a REAL small farm, we depend on the CSA income to finance every upcoming season. We plan all of our crops and harvests with our cherished CSA members in mind. It is because of our CSA program that we are even able to continue farming each year.Our farm offers multiple CSA programs throughout the entire farming year. Each CSA season is aligned with our actual harvest times. Therefore, we are considered a true-to-season agricultural program.  
 
Benefits of a CSA program:
 
1. Get to know your farmer.
2. Be confident in where your produce is coming from
3. Eat Clean! The less hands that touch your produce the better. No more than two of our staff members touch your produce from harvest to your family's table.
4. Help support a REAL Small Farm
 
*Unlike many other CSA programs 90% of the produce we offer is grown and harvest by us, on our farm. We do bring in some local tree fruit when available. We also offer our members a CHOICE of veggies each week. We do not choose for you, unless you want us to! We are an experienced farm, not a Hobby Farm. We are very proud of what we do and have endless gratitude for our loyal and totally awesome members! The Z Farm has been running a CSA program for over seven years now.

Hello!

Thank you so much for your support! I am overwhelmed by the excitement for the turkeys and Thanksgiving veggie box. We are selling so many turkeys, we are almost sold out! If you are interested in a Free Range Turkey this Thanksgiving, please order by the end of tomorrow. You may still sign up for the Thanksgiving veggie box until next week. This box can make your farm-to-table holiday dinner complete! It also makes a great sustainable gift. 

 

Don't forget to sign up for the Winter CSA!

Hello!

I am glad to announce that this week is the first week of the Summer CSA! This upcoming weekend you will be able to pick your produce up at the market you signed up for. When you arrive at the market and find our table, just sign in under your name in the CSA binder. Then you can take your items from the tables. Don't be shy if you don't know what something is or how to cook it! Our staff will answer any questions you may have. We look forward to working with you this summer!

 

Thanks for your support!

Hello!

I am excited to tell you that the Summer CSA begins this week!! The staff here at the Zahradka farm is super excited to begin providing you with quality produce that is grown and packaged with love. Tomorrow the first list will be available online at thezahradkafarm.com. Just log into your account and place your order! The store will be available until 6 am Tuesday morning. If you forget to place your order, we will pack you a Farm Choice box so you won't miss out. After the first week we will introduce a variety of specialty items that can be ordered with your weekly share as well.

Your share will be delivered on the same day each week. It will be hot many of the days that we deliver this summer. I strongly advise everyone to leave a cooler out for their share. This will prevent wilting and sweating of sensitive produce. If you do not leave a cooler outside, we will leave a crate with your CSA share. Place this crate anywhere that you want us to leave your share and we will put your bag in it each week. You may place your used bags from the CSA in the crate or your cooler and we will collect them each week.

I look forward to working with you this summer. Please include any special delivery instructions for our drivers in the notes section of your order form. If your building requires a passcode, please include this in your notes section.

Thanks for your support!
