Thanks for the fantastic kim chi this season! We had kim chi noodle soup with egg tonight, and it nourished my very soul! We crave it when the weather gets cold. Wonderful stuff!

This is a true story. A customer approaches the "farmer" at the farmers market and asks if he sprays. The "farmer" responds no which is true since the spraying is not his job. Herbicides, fungicides and pesticides are sprayed on the farm by someone else. We can not advertise that we are organic unless we are certified and there is a reason for this. It is to preserve the integrity of the word ORGANIC.
This is one of the reasons we are in the process of certifying the farm organic. Another is that our previous certifying agent, Certified Naturally Grown, is unknown to almost everyone. What does naturally grown mean anyway? Everything is natural these days it seems. The word has been corrupted. stew

Amy Melton Prentiss Thanks for the education, Stew.

The cost difference between organic and conventional seed can be extreme as seen in the picture. We use organic seed almost entirely. Sometimes key varieties are not available organically. When this happens we purchase untreated seeds. We never use GMO derived seeds.

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

CSA is a movement that reconnects the community with its food source, the local farmer — a grassroots alternative to agribusiness.

Native Offerings Farm & Community Supported Agriculture

We are certified naturally grown, following organic standards, which prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers. Following standards assures you that genetically modified crops and organisms will not end up in your food. More information on Certified Naturally Grown available at www.NaturallyGrown.org.

We believe healthy soils produce healthy plants and employ ecological practices such as composting, cover cropping, mulching and crop rotation. We look at the farm as an ecosystem that we directly impact and want to encourage and enhance diversity instead of limiting it.

Farming for the community and providing the best food we can offer to you is our only business. We grow varieties noted for their culinary and nutritional value. Because every meal begins with your eyes, we enjoy growing beautiful vegetables. We believe a healthy diet is essential to superior health and longevity.

Why we charge what we do. In a sentence our pricing lies between wholesale and retail. Surveys returned consistently report that people are getting great value. When you buy a share or a bunch of arugula you are buying more than vegetables, you are supporting our family. We work very hard to earn a modest living. The price we receive for our shares makes it sustainable for us to continue doing what we love. The members are shareholders of the produce we grow. Without their support we would be unable to farm. By supporting us you not only get incredibly fresh and great tasting vegetables full of nutrients and vitality, but a food source you can trust.
