Many people have asked me to re-post our 2013 Vegetable CSA Sign-Up, also, our 2013 Mushroom CSA Sign-up. In addition, it’s been suggested that we occasionally re-post to email and to Facebook. Repeated posts have a better chance of being seen in the busy stream.
If you could please help us spread the word that CSA sign-up’s are happening. We are accepting Vegetable, Mushroom, and Honey sign-up’s now. You can find the sign-up forms HERE Please spread the word of what our CSA has meant for you in the past. Please share your comments with us – we’ll try to pass them on in future posts too!
We’ve got brochures for Vegetable and Mushroom CSA’s at Greentree Food Co-Op, Graham’s Organics, University Cup, Herbs Etc., Kava….. Hometown Health Foods, Hixson’s, Denslow’s, True Value Canadian Lakes…..Hilhof Dairy, Bigby, All About Health, and Peppers…
Any suggestions as to where else I ought to distribute them?
Want to be one of my Brochure Distribution Angels and keep these locations stocked?
If you have some contacts to whom you think our CSA might appeal, pass it on! If you’re on a list-serve at work, and you can post, please send it forward. Paste it on your personal Facebook, your email contacts, etc, etc. If you’ve got favorite hang-out’s in town where some of our hardcopy brochures would do well – Let Me Know!

Here’s our 2013 Veggie Sign-Up form:
Swier Family Farm
Veggie Community Supported Agriculture 2013
This CSA brings you, us, the Farm, and food together. Our CSA is both a concept and practice. This requires mutual trust, understanding and flexibility. You support stewardship of the farm and food when you buy a share of the upcoming harvest. As partners in community and agriculture, we pledge to share the benefits of abundance and the risks of failure. We will all do our best to nurture this Vegetable CSA this season.
Locally grown produce, Your CSA!
For 18 weeks, June through October, you receive a 4 – 20 pound assortment of fresh vegetables and limited flowers. This is approximately 1-3 grocery bags worth. The quantity and variety will vary seasonally. We deliver the produce to central drop-off locations. We farm organically, though we are not certified. All food and flowers are grown by us on our farm.
Let’s enjoy the harvest!
