Signs of spring abound – daffodils, birdsong, a big river flood, and this annual post opening our CSA to subscribers! As the world slowly greens up, our growers are greening up their gardens – the kale seedlings are already sprouted, the blackberry bushes are getting ready to bud, and the asparagus is secretly waking up below the soil. Nature is preparing another bounty for us this year, minutes from home!
Our CSA remains a small collaboration of farming families within about 20 miles of Madison. Some have been farming the same fields for generations, for some the farm is a passion project, and others are young farmers just starting out. We appreciate the way our super-local, multigrower CSA allows growers to learn from each other, try new foods, and share best practices to keep each farm – and our local land and water – healthy and thriving. You can find a basic introduction to our growers on the “Growers and Practices” page.
If you’re interested in learning more about our CSA and learning if it’s the right fit for you, please spend some time exploring our site. On the “About” page you’ll learn about CSAs in general and ours in particular, including pickup times and approximate produce lists.

Our tummies are ready for mid-May – we hope we see you then, when the eating is good! And we hope we hear from you sooner!
