With the addition of our new farm only a few minutes from Gorman Farm we are getting closer towards incorporating the two. We have our sites set on our original mission statement to offer the best quality produce and an awesome farm experience. Each year we do our best to grow our business and enhance the most productive aspects. The CSA program is where our focus is, and many go bananas over strawberries!

- We are seeking your help and support of this pilot program to help us move our CSA program forward to a much more opportunity filled CSA. This may involve more supplemental options to the program as well as more interactive elements. We want our CSA to work for all members. For those of you that desire more community, more opportunity to get out in the field, come to a gathering, pick your own aspects, potluck, or barn dance we offer that. For those who just want to get in, get your food, and get out with quick and easy logistics, we offer that as well. We are taking steady steps towards a much bigger picture of offering a CSA program that offers great value and an optional interactive experience geared towards family and community building.
