What is a market share?
Our market share includes the traditional method of members buying CSA shares ahead of the season, thus taking the edge off of the financial investments farmers make in the winter and early spring. In order to give us more time to grow delicious, nutrient-dense food and give you the freedom to choose exactly what you want, in 2020 we are inviting members to our farmer's market stands to get their market share discounted veggies from April-December.
How does it work?

All of our vegetables are grown by Ailsa and Brad with holistic methods and standards that far exceed "Organic". We do not spray any synthetic inputs in or around any of our fields or use GMO seeds. Compost, cover crops and rotational grazing feed our soil and our food. We believe that healthy land grows healthy food and healthy people.
Our guiding principles go far beyond growing without synthetic inputs or GMOS. We also:
-Use a small 1940s tractor with solar capabilities
-Keep our operation small enough and ourselves accountable/informed enough to pivot to more responsible regenerative methods (like organic no-till and permaculture)
-Pasture chickens throughout our growing fields for weed management, fertility, and decreased tractor/oil dependence
-Reduce and reuse plastic supplies and packaging. We do not use plastic mulch in our growing fields!
-Make purchases from responsible and local companies whenever possible (see our blog post about seed sourcing)
-Deliver to hubs to reduce travel
-Donate food on the individual level and to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Rolling Harvest and Farmers Against Hunger
