CSA and Vouchers

 

Mama Tee’s 2017 CSA Season Memberships are closed.

2018 CSA memberships will be opened in Jan 2018!

Please contact us, mamateesfarm@gmail.com,  for more info.

Welcome to season six of Mama Tee’s Farmstead. We have another exciting year ahead! Farmer and owner Carrie and farmer PJ are eager to increase the Farm-ily this year and feed folks with incredibly wholesome and delicious food grown and raised using 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, working with a wonderful local cafe, a locally roasted coffee share! Also back for the 2017 season is Mama Tee’s FULL BOUNTY share which includes a combination of all that we grow and produce here at the farm! Also new this year, we will have a DELIVERY option for those located within a couple miles of our route!

We grow over 60 varieties of vegetables and fruits using 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 of nutrient-rich fields for roaming and foraging. 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 (see below) 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 the farm or a designated spot in Sheridan or Portland.  The season length varies depending on which option you chose. Vegetable shares are weekly, egg and coffee 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. Pickup days and times, more information on each share, as well as costs are listed below. If you chose shares which exceed $360, you have the option of an installment plan of two or three payments. Just click on the 2017 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? You most certainly can. Download the form and call Mama Tee’s (number is on the form) and we will get you signed up in a jiffy!
