2016 CSA members are all invited to attend our farm events. These events are a great chance to meet your farmers, see where your food is grown, and to celebrate the local harvest with family and community. Please mark your calendar!

We’ll have a couple of different design options, and you’ll be able to silk screen a t-shirt right onto one of your favorite tees. Farm tours will also be available. The fun starts at 1:30 p.m. and goes until 4:00p.m.
