What is CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a model where people invest in a share of the farm’s produce, which they receive every week. We grow a wide variety of herbs and vegetables, with the goal of providing all of your seasonal vegetable needs! (see list of crops below)
Every CSA is different. Members may be attracted to Clove Valley CSA for the beautiful location, the wonderful community of people living on the farm, the soil-friendly methods (see more below), and the small scale. (not to mention the abundance and variety!) The fact that we are so small allows us to develop more personal relationships with our members, and tailor membership agreements to serve individual interests!
To sign up, inquire, or arrange a visit, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 570-762-2872
Very flexible pick-up schedule! Distribution will be 24 (at least) weeks from June to mid-Nov. Members can pick up Friday 4pm-Tues 4pm
Cost $700, approx $30/week. !!work-trade available!!! Every season so far members have received MUCH more than $30/week of produce.
Growing Methods: Clove Valley CSA is different from other CSA’s in the area in that we are small-scale, no-till and use permaculture methods including sheet-mulching, and provide habitat within the gardens for a diverse and self-regulating ecology, reducing the need for pest-control, etc. Our practices are designed to burn very little fossil fuel while building soil fertility. The result is extremely energized food… you can taste and feel the difference! The farm is also especially designed for human beings (including you!) We prioritize aesthetics, working to create a welcoming and beautiful place for us to work and live and our community to visit.
Crop Plan: This is what we intend to grow. (probably I forgot some!) Some crops will naturally be more abundant and successful than others, but with such a wide variety it should all balance out. Any requests? It’s not too late!
