We use bushel baskets with lids to pack our C.S.A.'s. The baskets start off with greens, beets, carrots, cilantro, green garlic, salad mix etc. until mid July. Usually by the 3rd week of July our summer crops are ripe and the baskets are overflowing and heavy with beans, zucchini, tomatoes and much more. The bounty lasts through the end of September when the program ends.
R.A.S. Farm was founded in 1998. We are a small family owned and operated farm and we use only sustainable growing practices. We grow a large variety of vegetables and herbs using heirloom and open pollinated seeds whenever possible in our short growing season. We planted fruit trees 4 years ago when we bought our farm, so in the future we will be selling fruit such as apples, pears, plums, grapes,strawberries and raspberries. We are ever expanding our gardens hoping to slowly create an oasis containing a large diversity of plant life. We are becoming very interested in permaculture techniques as they seem to better fit our lifestyle. We also raise dairy goats and in the future we may have goats' milk for sale through a herd-share.
