What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a method for delivery of fresh farm produce to customers through a subscription service. The customer pays up front for a share of the farm’s harvest throughout the season. These boxes are then delivered or available for pick up weekly at the farm. This allows the farmer to pay for the up front cost when they are at their highest, and be assured that their products are already sold.
Are you Certified Organic?
Gravel Road Farm is not a certified organic farm at this time, although we are currently pursuing funding that will allow us to acquire certification. If you are interested in learning about our commitment to protecting the natural habitat of our property and the details of our farming methods, please click this link to Our Farming Methods. And if you can, make time to visit our farm to witness the hard work we do every day. We are mostly raising food for our customers, but also for our ourselves and our children, so our standards are the highest for everything we grow.
Can I visit your farm?
Our customers are always welcome to visit our farm. Please be sure to let us know when you would like to visit so that we can be here to meet your needs. Call us at 715.281.0812, or email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please stay tuned for Spring, Summer, and Fall events especially for our customers and families.
Do you have berries for sale?
We are not able to offer any berries for sale this year. Our blueberry plants are being started just this year and they will need to grow for two more years before we can start to harvest from them. We hope to offer Strawberries for sale in 2014, so please check back with us then. We plan to start raspberries in 2013, available for sale when they start producing.
Do you keep animals on your farm?
We have a flock of laying chickens started in the Spring in 2013. They are a hardy free range breed of chicken colored black to dark brown. They lay brown eggs. Call 715-281-0813 for availability. We will be raising a few animals this year, maintaining our small flock of sheep, a small bunch of turkeys and some pigs again. We also have a beloved farm cat, who keeps us entertained and free of rodents.
