CSA

Community Supported Agriculture in 2018

In alignment with our desire to bring healthy food and medicine to our local community …

We are thrilled to announce that we will be offering a regular season CSA in 2018!

Here’s what a few of our past members had to say about Pachamama’s CSA:
“I love going to the farm each week to pick up my vegetables. The quality of the produce is outstanding and I enjoy the variety of vegetables that I would otherwise not try at my local supermarket.”
“We had a wonderful CSA experience this season. The vegetables were beautiful and delicious. Veggie pick up proved to be easy-peasy and, being in my neighborhood, was a community builder. Overall, an A+ experience!”
“We feel so fortunate to be able to access pure and delicious fruits and vegetables raised by farmers in our community. Thank you Pachamama Farm!”
“I am confident the farmers of Pachamama have impeccable integrity and the food is of the highest quality.”
“Pachamama CSA veggies are the best!  We tried out another farm last year just for fun, but Pachamama’s quality of organic vegetables and diversity are just above and beyond, we had to return to you!”

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is, once again, the main focus of our farm’s food production and distribution. CSA members commit to supporting and benefiting from their local “foodshed” by purchasing a season’s worth of the farm’s crops. Payment is most often made before harvesting begins so that a farm has the necessary working capital to start and cultivate crops.

The CSA distribution model originated in Japan in 1965 and is called “Teikei” or “food with the farmer’s face on it.” During this time, women seeking to protect their food heritage from urban sprawl organized buying clubs of up to 50,000 members. With a common goal, clubs were able to systematically influence governments locally and nationally.

The Anthroposophical movement in Europe eventually spawned a CSA movement first in Switzerland which then quickly spread to the United States in the mid-80’s. The cooperative nature of this model is in alignment with Rudolf Steiner’s “associative or brotherly” economic principles, thereby making it a natural complement to the Biodynamic farming community.

When you join our CSA, you will get a “share” of our farm. Each week, for 22 weeks, you will pick up fresh, nutritious, local produce grown using organic methods. By participating in our CSA, you will directly support your local farmers and your local economy.

Membership includes your just-picked produce, a weekly CSA newsletter, recipes, invitations to farm events and the opportunity to enjoy the farm each week.

Space is limited; shares will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Dates: 22 weeks, May 31st – October 25th

Pick-Up Day & Time: Thursdays, 4-6:30pm

Pick-Up Locations:

Pachamama Farm & Wellness
10771 N. 49th Street
Longmont, CO 80503

South Boulder: Near Brookfield Dr. and 46th St.

We strongly encourage you, our CSA members, to pick-up at the farm so you can get to know your farmers and enjoy the space where your food is grown; but, we also understand that it may not be possible for everyone to get to the farm during the weekly pick-up time. All CSA members are welcome, and encouraged, to tour the farm during the growing season.
