The Heritage Grain Share

A new model for Community Supported Agriculture!

The Local Grain Share explained –

While vegetable “Farm Shares” or CSA’s began in the 1980’s and have blossomed into a profusion of opportunities for farmer’s and consumers alike to buy the highest quality vegetables, many of us have asked what about the rest of our foods like Grains, Meats, fruit, or preserves?

In 2008 I decided to tackle one of the missing pieces of our burgeoning local food system to make more opportunities available to farmers and consumers. The Heritage Grain Share was born and we’ve been growing, grinding, popping and cooking up a storm ever since!

With 5 types heritage and ancient wheat, 5 types of heirloom beans, popcorn, oats(rolled, steel cut, and whole), cornmeal, 7 stone ground flour options, and more This share is unlike anything you can get at the grocery store. If you were to buy these special grains online they would be twice the price or not available and probably from over seas or far away.

Each year we provide our members with the highest quality heirloom and heritage, organically grown grains, flours and beans from our farms. We take great pride in creating a community based model where we have long lasting relationships with our members and our farmers. Connecting the two is our mission and our joy!

Organic?

About 2/3rds of our crops are certified organic and most of the rest grown with organic methods. At customizing time all organic crops are labeled and you can choose an entirely organic share if you like.

Grown on small sustainable farms, our shares are fresher, tastier and healthier than anything you can find in a store! Supporting our local farms is environmentally sustainable, keeps our food dollars circulating in the the local economy(instead of overseas corporate bank accounts) and enriches the lives of the farmers and consumers by creating a connection between the two!

Members sign up throughout the growing season and we work with the farms to grow for the distribution in January/February. Sign ups close on December 24th and members get their “Customizing Links” on Christmas to design their share to meet there exact needs and tastes. Once your share has been customized to your liking you schedule your time to pick up at the website for the Pickup ,location you want and the time you can attend.
