SHARES

Why choose our Community Sustained Agriculture (CSA)?

For over 20 years, we have produced the finest quality fruits and vegetables right from seed and offered them at their freshest, immediately upon harvest. We believe in the minimum handling of our produce, picking only vine-ripened fruits and vegetables straight from the plant, and bring them directly to our roadside Farmstand where you can select what you choose by hand.

 

Since 2016, we have been offering CSA Shares full of all the wonderful crops that have long been produced here, as well as many new additions in our ever-expanding garden.

 

Our CSA Shares give our longtime customers, the rest of the population of McMinnville and its surrounding communities, the opportunity to invest in our farm as Shareholders, and in return enjoy the abundance of fresh produce throughout the summer, fall and winter months.

How does a CSA work?            

Community Supported Agriculture is a relationship between you and a local, family farm. You connect directly with us- your farmers, and every week, we will gather a variety of fresh, nutritious foods to give to you at a designated pick-up time. Your CSA membership or share is also an investment in your community and in sustainable agricultural practices; your support contributes to responsible farming traditions that have been passed down for generations and provides everyone the opportunity to eat locally-grown, nourishing fruits and vegetables.

 

Our CSA

Almost everything offered in our CSA package is grown directly from seed here at Draper Farms. We would like to create a feeling that our garden is your garden. We also want to ensure you that they you are getting a great deal on delicious food - our CSA is the most reasonable one around for the amount of weeks offered!

 

We are proud to offer a 25 week fruit and vegetable CSA at:

 

· Full Share $750 (About 8-12 items per week)

 

· Half Share $375 (About 4-7 items per week)

 

CSA Full Share Example, Week 1:

{1.5 lbs. Rhubarb, 1.5 lbs. Snap Peas, 4 zucchini, 4 cucumbers, 2 kohlrabi, 1 bunch beets, 1 bunch kale, 1 bunch carrots}

 

The 25 week program is scheduled to begin the 1st week of June and run through the third week of November. This could be moved forward or backward one week depending on the growing season.

 

In the end, we sincerely want our CSA members to save money and enjoy the benefits of joining with us in returning to older, more natural and earth-friendly agricultural practices that do not include the use of dangerous pesticides and GMO products.
