What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  It is a growing movement of health conscious consumers who purchase a share of produce that is grown by a local farmer.  The share is purchased in the spring and as produce comes into season,  CSA members receive a share of what is grown.  It is distributed at centrally-located pick-up points for convenience and also to reduce the carbon foot print.

 

What are the benefits of becoming a CSA Member?

  • Enjoy locally grown produce that has not been trucked in from 1000s of miles

  • Convenient for your lifestyle

  • Fresh picked and in season so that you get it at peak nutritional value

  • Reduce the carbon foot print as you are joining with other CSA members for centrally-located pick-up points

  • You are supporting local farmers and the Colorado economy

 

How is Lora’s Nourishing Produce grown?

Our mission is to produce nutrient-dense, health-building produce, thus the name: Lora’s Nourishing Produce.  We do not use herbicides, pesticides, or anything else that would disturb the natural balance of how food is supposed to be grown.  To learn more, check out Our Story Page

 

When will I begin to receive produce?

You will start receiving produce the middle of June.  There will be one week of no delivery mid-summer.  We go through the second to last week in October for a total 18 weeks of tasty farm fresh produce!

 

How much produce do I get with a CSA share?

You will start off with leafy greens, sugar snap peas, micro greens and garlic scapes.  As the season progresses, the variety and amount increases as crops mature and are available.  Our goal is to provide you variety and in quantities for 2-3 adults or 2 adults and 2 younger children.  Some households, with diets that are more plant-based than the average, can opt to purchase 2 shares to fit their needs.  Check out our YouTube video above to see what past CSA harvests have looked like.

 

Do you offer half-shares?

At this time, I do not have half shares available.  You can e-mail me your name and the location that you are interested in and I can see if I can match you up with another person that is looking to split a share.  The best way is to ask a friend if they want to split it with you.  I do not recommend splitting a share though unless you are single as the portions sometimes are hard to split between two families.  My goal is to provide you with more variety than with large amounts of a few items and in proportions that I would use myself.
