The Farm at Kristy's Barn will be offering limited membership in a Community Supported Agriculture, (CSA) enterprise for the 2011 production year. This 20 share/member CSA will be a simple CSA with product available from June through September 2011.
The preliminary crop plan reflects the current production on the farm. Our CSA plan may vary depending on the 2011 growing conditions. As with any agricultural enterprise, weather conditions dictate the success or failure of production. As a CSA member you are accepting some of the risk associated with agricultural production. We cannot guarantee that all crops will successfully reach maturity. We are a low input producer and use limited spray in our production. We will do our best and use accepted agricultural practices to make this CSA a success.
The cost of a share will be $500.00 and shareholders can anticipate 500 lbs of product over the season. Weekly weights will range depending on what is in season. Sign-up will be on a first come, first serve basis with a non-refundable deposit of $200.00 by April 1st 2011, the remainder in two equal non-refundable installments payable, May 1st and June 1st.
We're a friendly farm market established in 1910, & just ten minutes from Albany! Kristy's Barn is full of quality fruits and produce, most of which are grown on our 300+ acre farm. We are a Low spray, No spray farm, which means we spray our crops ONLY when we absolutely NEED to, & when we do, we spray minimally. We do this for our consumer's health, as well as for the safety & health of the environment, & the creatures we share it with! Our farm market changes to reflect the seasonal changes. Our goal is to provide our customers with the freshness & quality they seek. To do this we ourselves produce nine types of fruits, twenty different vegetables & numerous varieties of flowers in our own orchards, fields & greenhouses.
