This year we have decided to provide our members with the option to purchase fruit from our farm. We have had innumerable requests from members to provide some kind of option for purchasing fruit.
We have recently purchased some additional land with a small orchard to add to our farm. We will be growing some fruit items in our orchard and fields. We will also be partnering with other growers from the Midwest that we have come to know and trust to provide other items.
Being that this is the first year offering fruit we are not going to offer fruit as a weekly share option but rather as a choice selection based on availability. We will be sending out an order form for you to select the fruits you desire along with the appropriate quantity. You will pay based on what you choose and your fruit will be delivered the next week along with your regular vegetable share. This will approximately be offered 5-8 times during the season based on seasonal availability.
We are excited about offering high quality fruit this season. If interest is high we hope to offer fruit as a weekly or biweekly CSA share next season. Orchard crops take time to develop and mature into full fledged producing trees. Over the next few seasons we will be adding additional trees and types of fruit to our orchard.
We are committed to stewardship of the resources that we have been given by God. We feel growing nutrient-dense is the best way to care for our land and provide a great source of nutritious food for our members. Our farm is located just outside of Fort Atkinson, WI. We offer well over 100 varieties of fresh produce.
We offer full shares, couple shares, and a winter share. We have many pick up sites to choose from. We hope our farm can be a blessing to you.
This chart is to be used as a guideline for the fruits that will be possibly offered. All fruit is based on seasonal availability.
