Welcome to Mama Tee’s Farmstead. We have another exciting year ahead! Farmer’s Carrie and PJ are eager to increase the Farm-ily this year and feed folks with incredibly wholesome and delicious food grown and raised using beyond organic methods. We will be offering not only our full and half vegetable and fruit shares but also SEASONAL vegetable shares as well, which includes spring, summer, and fall share options. We are also happy to be offering another meat share and Mama Tee’s FULL BOUNTY share which includes a combination of all that we grow and produce here at the farm! We have an expanded DELIVERY option for the 2018 season too.
We grow over 60 varieties of vegetables and fruits and tend to chickens, goats, and pigs in the fields. We use agroecological principles and practices (sometimes referred to as “beyond organic”) to promote soil health, ecological diversity, and community well being on the farm.
We are excited and proud to offer our combo meat share again this year alongside our outstanding vegetables, fruits, eggs, and preserves! Our meat share includes pasture-raised pork, chicken, and chevon. Through our tireless efforts we provide a great and humane living environment for our animals that roam and forage among 5 acres of pastures. This results in healthier animals and tastier meats! We never use antibiotics or hormones in any of our animals and our chickens and pigs are supplemented using a GMO-free, locally milled feed.
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 farmers pay up front costs in the time we need it most and supplies the share holder with a plethora of vegetables, herb, fruits, eggs, meats 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 which helps cover initial costs and expenses when the farmer needs it most (the beginning of the season). Then, when your chosen season begins, you will pick up your box full of produce (and/or eggs, meat, preserves, etc.) either at a designated location or have it delivered to your chosen place (delivery option). The season length varies depending on which option you chose. Vegetable shares are weekly, egg shares are weekly or biweekly, meat shares are monthly. Your full share includes anywhere between 7 and 12 items and is estimated to feed 2-4 moderate veggie eaters. The half share usually includes between 4 and 7 items and is estimated to feed 1-2 moderate to light veggie eaters. If you chose shares which exceed $400, you have the option of an installment plan of two or three payments. Just click on the 2018 CSA member form of your choice, fill out the information, sign and mail it in with your choice of payment required on the form. Forms are available NOW. Want to use a credit or debit card to sign up? This year you can submit all your information, sign up, and pay online: START HERE!
