If you wondering what a typical share looks like
The vegetables for Straight Out of the Ground CSA are grown with the highest regard for our environment. If you want to talk about Organic, lets talk, but meanwhile, trust that no matter what my circumstance is, NO insecticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or GM seeds are considered for use. Planting starts with just about every seed variety FEDCO seeds has to offer, producing an incredible diversity of flavors and nutrients to enjoy throughout the season. We use mechanical means to deal with weeds and pests (hoeing, tractor mounted weeders, covering plants to keep off the flea beetles, etc). Soil health is boosted with compost from a neighbors horse farm, seaweed tea field applications and cycling out fields for one year to cover crop. Your veggies are harvested packed, and distributed within 24 hours keeping the nutrition content high. You are encouraged to ask us as many questions about our growing practices and visit the farm for a tour any time.
