2013 share prices are $475 (full share), $325 (working share or low income share)
CSA members receive a share of the harvest,
from the start of June to late October. All of our produce is
grown without toxic pesticides, in ways that enhance the life of
the soil and the plants. This means you get the most nutritious
vegetables. We are certified organic by OEFFA.
What is Community
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA,
with people who want to eat the freshest,
local produce in
season. It works like a cooperative—you buy
a share of the
season’s produce and get a variety of
the summer. Joining a CSA lets you reconnect
roots of the food you eat; you know exactly
food is tended. You might even help to plant
some of your food. Since Groundswell
Community Farm uses organic methods, you are
protecting the local environment.
This environment includes the Black River, a
tributary of Lake Macatawa, which flows less
than 20 feet from the farm. We
welcome you to visit the farm, whether you
are helping in the harvesting or just
enjoying the scenery.
Eating with the Seasons
By sharing in the abundance of the farm, you are
also sharing in the risk. The weather always favors some crops
even as others suffer. For example, there may be a bumper crop
of something you hate in the same year that your favorite crop
fails. Expect the unexpected.
You will soon learn the nuances of seasonal flavor. The menu in
early June is heavy on greens, while September offers a bounty
You may want to spend more time on the farm.
