Native Hill Farm's Unique Summer Market CSA
We are excited to offer a unique Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) experience that we believe matches the busy, active lifestyles of the Northern Colorado community. As with traditional CSA models, our “market” CSA model will still pre-sell “shares” in exchange for 24 weeks of bountiful produce throughout the late spring, summer, and early fall. What makes Native Hill's CSA different is that rather than receiving a weekly share of produce for a set number of weeks, our members will have a produce account at Native Hill Farm which they will then be able to use at our twice weekly markets and daily farm stand. In addition, members will receive 10% off our market prices.
This model offers many advantages over a traditional CSA model, such as the convenience of purchasing the quantity and variety of produce that you prefer and the flexibility to obtain produce when you need it. For example, if you are enjoying a vacation during the growing season, your balance will still be available when you return and you can snag some extra cucumbers that may not be available the following week for your fall preserving. In addition, you don’t even have to remember to bring cash to the market as we will just deduct your market purchases from your account and update your balance weekly.
Members of our “Farmer’s Market CSA” will still enjoy the benefits of a traditional CSA, such as directly supporting a small, local farm and building relationships with community members who share similar values and interests. Weekly farm updates and recipes will be regularly available as well as the opportunity to become a Working Member.
