As summer winds down and the busiest season for both the CSA and the Bakery approaches, we are filled with excitement about all the new things that are happening!

CSA shares are filling fast, so we urge everyone who has not yet signed up to do so sooner rather than later… we don’t want anyone to miss out! Also, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at!

Although we have discussed the reasons behind creating the grain share to many of our members, we feel that it is important for everyone to understand the values that drive us on a daily basis. In a nutshell:

  • Locally grown heirloom grains taste better and are better for you!
  • Locally grown heirloom grains preserve history and genetic variations in our crops!
  • Locally grown heirloom grains boost our local economy and foster community development!
  • Locally grown heirloom grains help our generation as well as future generations!

If you go to our CSA main page you will find a full explanation under the handout section entitled “Value of a Grain Share”.

We would also like to take an opportunity to reach out to those customers who are interested in buying a share, but might not have the financial means. Please contact us at and we can discuss helping with the cost of the share. We want everyone who wants local grain to have it!

Enjoy the final days of August,
