Balsam Farms CSA 2013
Balsam Farms is pleased to offer memberships in our 2013 community supported agriculture program, also known as CSA. When you join, your membership fee covers our production costs of planting and harvesting.
In exchange for your fee, you receive a weekly share of the freshest available produce grown by Balsam Farms. Depending on what we are harvesting, our farmers will choose a delicious selection of vegetables, greens, herbs and fruit for you each week. The dollar value of each week’s share will vary; over the course of the season you will receive vegetables at a discounted rate.
In addition to the regular Balsam Farms produce share, we have five optional add-ons this year:
Flower Share ~ 1 mixed bouquet or 1 sunflower bouquet weekly Farmer’s Choice Balsam Farms (June 28 -- Sept. 27)
