Welcome to season four of Mama Tee’s Farmstead. We have an exciting year ahead! Farmer and owner, Carrie, is eager to increase the Farm-ily this year and feed folks with incredibly wholesome and delicious food grown and raised organically. We will be back with the vegetable and fruit shares and our bi-monthly egg share. We are so EXCITED to be offering, new this season, a value-added share and, working with some wonderful neighboring farms, we will be offering a fresh baked bread and meat shares this year as well! Check out the information below for more details.

What is a CSA anyway?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a shared commitment between farmer and consumer ( or share holder—YOU) that helps the farmer pay up front costs in the time she needs it most and supplies the share holder with a plethora of vegetables, herb, fruits, eggs, and/or preserves each week during the season. CSA’s share the benefits and costs of farm production with its members, thus keeping everyone in the community connected to where their food comes from and keeping the farm’s practices transparent and open.

How Mama Tee’s CSA works…

Starting in January, members can sign up for the CSA share they choose (see below) which helps cover initial costs and expenses when the farmer needs it most (the beginning of the season). Then, starting in June, you will pick up your box full of produce either at the farm or a designated spot in Portland.  The season will continue 22 weeks and includes a special Thanksgiving share to end the season in late November. Your full share includes anywhere between 8 and 12 items and is estimated to feed 2-4 heavy to moderate veggie eaters. The half share usually includes between 5 and 7 items and is estimated to feed 1-2 moderate to light veggie eaters. Pickup days and times, more information on each share, as well as costs are listed below. Both the full and half share have a choice of either a discounted full payment due with the form or an installment plan. Just click on the 2015 CSA member form of your choice, fill out the information, sign and send it in with  your choice of payment required on the form.

Mama Tee’s is happy and proud to be able to accept SNAP/EBT benefits this year for our CSA shares. If you are snap2interested in joining the shares via Oregon Trail card please email mamateesfarm@gmail.com and ask how it works!

Sign up today and enjoy the bounty throughout the season!
