2021 Windswept Farm CSA Share

From: $325.00

Love vegetables? Looking to boost your health, support local farms, and get inspired in the kitchen in 2021? Sign up today to become a member of the 2021 Windswept Farm CSA Program. Shares are limited, reserve yours while supplies last.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is all about building connection between a farmer and the local community. As a CSA member, you commit to stick with us through the season in exchange for 20 weeks of freshly harvested produce from the farm. You’ll receive regular updates from our farmers that detail the journey of your food from seed to harvest, along with recipe ideas and tips and tricks for working with different vegetables in the kitchen.

Thanks to you, our dedicated CSA members, we can go into the season confident and with our members in mind for all steps of the farm planning process.

Pre-payment also gives us a much needed cash influx right when costly seed purchases must be made for the coming year during the lean winter months.

For the main season (June-October) CSA members receive a CSA box, or “share” of the harvest. The boxes usually contain 10-12 different things that equal over $30 retail value. Items change with seasonal availability, and should provide for a large portion of your produce needs.

  • Summer crops – tomatoes, eggplant, sweet & hot peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, sweet corn, melons, tomatillos, green beans
  • Salad greens – spinach, lettuce mix, head lettuce, baby kale, arugula, microgreens, specialty greens
  • Roots – Radishes, beets, carrots, turnips, celeriac
  • Other – broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, fennel, scallions, onions, winter squash
  • Cooking greens – kale, swiss chard, pok choi
  • Herbs – Parsley, sage, cilantro, basil, turmeric, garlic

*We will make our best effort to have all of these items available for our CSA members at some point in the season, but due to uncontrollable factors such as weather, seasonality, pests & disease we cannot guarantee availability of every item. 


Our mission is to feed & nourish our local community according to values of sustainability, health, connection and accountability – building a resilient local food system that will serve future generations! We envision a future where neighborhood farms provide for their surrounding communities – conserving natural resources, preserving green space, and providing us with an environment to connect to our food and one another.

We are a regenerative farm – meaning we invest into the soil through the use of cover crops, integrated livestock rotations for fertility and carbon sequestration, organic soil amendments and integrated pest management. As farmers and land stewards, our actions must preserve and improve the land’s natural resources, including soil, water and air. We follow organic farming principles – free from synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, instead using organic inputs locally sourced. Our focus is on building healthy soil as the basis for healthy plants that are naturally resistant to pests and disease, and also healthier for you.
