Description

Our CSA Begins

We are very excited to start our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this year. What does it mean for you to participate in our CSA? In essence, as a CSA member, you agree to pay us at the beginning of the season for a share of this year's harvest; this share will be distributed to you each week during the season, as explained later. The most obvious benefit for you, as a CSA member, is a guarantee that you will share in the fresh, local, chemical-free produce at our farm. We will have recipes and cooking advice for all the crops that we sell. You will see where and how your food is grown, and share in the joys and disappointments of crops as they come in season, along with us, the farmers. As such, you may deepen your awareness and connection with the land, and all the forces involved in producing the food you eat. This intangible benefit, we believe, is perhaps the most beautiful and precious part of a CSA. Furthermore, as a member, we will welcome your input into our farm's operation.

Greetings from Raluca and Ed at Shundahai Farm!

We are a small family farm of 5 acres established in 2009. We picked our name, Shundahai, from the Western Shoshone tribe, because we felt drawn to its meaning: "Peace and Harmony with all Creation". It captures the spirit in which we try to farm and live. Thus, we do not use herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, artificial fertilizers, or any other synthetic chemicals to grow our food. Instead, we try to work with Nature, adopting gentle, sustainable practices that promote the health of the soil, plants, and all of us.

To affirm our beliefs, we have taken the Connecticut NOFA (Northeast Organic Farmers Association) Pledge, which clearly articulates our principles.
