Thorn Crest Farm
Full member shares should supply an average family of four throughout the growing season (about a 1/2 bushel size to over a bushel at peak season/ will vary some each week) with healthy, freshly picked produce, herbs, fruit and flowers from the cutting garden. Pick your own opportunities are available at "no" additional charge. Our many years of growing experience help ensure a full ,diverse harvest throughout the season.
Thorn Crest is a small, family owned, sustainable farm that provides a diverse amount of fresh produce grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, synthetic fungicides or herbicides. For the 2011 growing season we are excited to offer an increased number of CSA shares. Starting in late May and running through October, members receive a weekly share of fresh picked vegetables. Some weeks will also include fresh herbs, fruit and flowers when in season. Shares start out light but increase quickly with the season to supply enough produce for an average family of four (over a bushel during peak season). Members can pick up at the farm or a drop site in Northfield.( An additional drop site has been added for the 2011 season at Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville.
CSA (community supported agriculture) is a unique agreement between community members and a local farm. Prior to the growing season, members purchase a share of the harvest. In return they visit the farm or a drop-site each week to receive fresh, high quality produce throughout the growing season. Members get to know the farmers and visit the fields where their food is grown.
