Simple Provisions is a CSA as well as a home delivery service featuring organic milk in returnable glass bottles and other products from local organic and sustainable small farms.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.

It’s a system where a community of members support a local farmer by purchasing shares of that year’s produce in advance. Members receive a box of vegetables each week throughout the growing season. The produce is exceptionally fresh and the everyone can get to know the farmers who grew the food and what methods they used to grow it.

We have taken this basic CSA concept and upgraded it to make the whole deal more flexible and convenient for our members.

For example:

  • ·We provide free home delivery for our CSA boxes, and we can split your share box with a friend at no extra charge as long as both half share boxes are delivered to the same address.
  • ·Our members can take up to two vacation weeks off each summer and we will replace those missing boxes at the end of the season.
  • ·Though it’s hard to believe, not every kid loves every kind of vegetable so we have developed a no fly list: Just let us know which vegetables don’t fly with your family and we’ll leave those out of your box and replace them with other selections.

Truly, we have been working hard to create a superior CSA, and now it’s time to expand and upgrade. With the help of Kickstarter, and the generous support of all of our wonderful friends, we will have our new farm up and running by planting time this Spring. Our new farm has a great barn and great soil, we will be able to raise chickens and goats and maybe some other kinds of farm animals, but what I am really excited about is that finally we will be able to host farm events, and have member families come out for festivals.

Your financial participation will be helping us to:

  • ·Install a walk-in cooler and packing facilities.
  • ·Build a greenhouse.
  • ·Build fences and a chicken coop, and maybe one of those little animal barns.

Thanks for your contributions, even if your contribution is to pass this link on to the rest of your network.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges?
Anyone who is involved with growing things will have plenty of each.
Whether it’s bugs, birds and bunnies, or unexpected weather events, I am constantly running around the gardens like a crazy fool. The good news is that this is what I love doing.
