Description

Our CSA shares feature the full range of our diverse vegetable and herb selection; this year we will be growing over 40 crops and 120 varieties. Download our farm membership form on our website for a list of crops and full list of membership and CSA options. Each share includes your own reusable bag to use for picking up your weekly veggies.Distributions are done farmstand-style; you get to choose which veggies you want to take home and leave the ones you don't (we provide a few guidelines to ensure that everyone gets a fair share).We also offer the option to add items to your share before coming to pick it up, such as flowers, fresh eggs, or additional produce. Extra items can be purchased via an online "store" on our website. We accept credit cards, cash and checks for extra items and they can be paid for in advance.

Star Acre Farms is a multi-plot, two-family suburban farm in beautiful Arvada, Colorado. We grow our produce without chemicals or pesticides and specialize in heirloom varieties you won't easily find in your grocery store. Our farm "plots" are residential properties in the neighborhoods of Star Acres and Paradise Acres. Water is supplied by the neighboring Church Ditch from May through September.

We offer CSA shares and will be at the Golden and Arvada farmer's markets this summer - and if you live in Arvada, you can order directly from our website. We are also launching a community orchard project to help manage and harvest the many fruit trees in our neighborhood.We produce sustainably grown vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers; fresh eggs; apples, pears and other fruit.
