Did you know 50% of small farm expenses are incurred before the harvest season starts?
What Are Market Style CSA Shares?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares allow you to partner and grow with our farm all season long. Many farms would not exist without the support of their CSA community. Farms use the CSA income to purchase the items long before growing season begins. Anawan Farm starts growing seedlings and gearing up for the season beginning end of January. Our projects, such as building infrastructure: placing fencing, building storage and cleaning stations, etc, etc., begins in the Fall of the PREVIOUS year!
We define our market style CSA as a pick & choose "free choice" model. The model, started in 2017, was a hit with our CSA & Workshare participants & is continuing in 2018.
CSA participants receive the best of each weekly harvest along with exclusive offerings. This model gives our CSA participants a chance to choose the veggies they prefer vs. receiving a designated bin. For example, if your family doesn't like peppers? Choose an extra serving of tomatoes or eggplant. We want to accommodate your family and its healthy eating habits.
How Much Produce Is Included in Our CSA Shares?
Full Shares Feed a Family of Four.
U-Pick 10-11 choices weekly.
Individual Shares Feed a Family of Two.

The size of your share changes according to the growing season. In general, the shares will start out smaller and build in size throughout the summer and fall seasons. Each share is always abundant and will easily feed a family of two or four.

A variety of herbs, Eggplant, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Bush Beans, Snap Peas, Radishes, Cucumbers, a variety of peppers, Sweet Corn, Kale, Kohlrabi, Carrots, Beets, Butternut (also known as winter squash), Pumpkins, Spaghetti Squash, Etc.
