There was excitement in the trees. The birds were flying around making a lot of noise. It seems they did not share our pleasure in the visit from the Bald Eagle.

Dry. We need rain. We used the transplanter today to water the field planted transplants. I know the rain will come. I do feel like the child looking at the clock waiting for what seems like the longest time. It will rain, but not on my schedule.

When you purchase organic vegetables indirectly you are purchasing organic seeds. The benefit is that the plants that produce the seeds are grown organically and adapted to ecological growing methods and environments.
Organic seed often costs significantly more than standard seed as you can see from the price of 5,000 kohlrabi seeds.
This is one of many reasons why it costs farmers more money to grow organically.
We are happy to pay the price. Our purchases create the world we want to live in. High Mowing is an all organic seed company and we support them.

Yesterday was the first day we were able to field plant. Here we are direct seeding and transplanting spinach. Rain is coming so we were anxious to plant. Today lettuce, chard and scallion transplants are going in.

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 USDA Certified Organic through NOFA-NY LLC. We follow 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. To learn more about NOFA-NY visit www.nofany.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.
