Farm Share Program
After ten years we have decided to discontinue our Farm Share (Community Supported Agriculture) program which provided weekly or bi-weekly vegetable subscriptions during the summer and fall growing seasons. Like many Farm Share/CSA programs across the country, enrollment has been slowly declining largely due to the change in consumer habits and availability of produce. There’s also a tremendous amount of logistics and labor that go behind getting 80 shareholders their produce each week.
We’re still growing
We have been delighted with the growth of the Terre Haute Farmers Market and we’re excited to bring even more of our eggs, veggies, and blooms here each week. We will focus on growing fewer crops that grow and sell well, more efficiently so we won’t be all sold out of lettuce and other high demand items by 10 a.m.!
We will also be able to better stock our Farm Store located here at White Violet Center which is open seven days a week.
We will continue to offer fresh, certified organic produce to area restaurants and other outlets and have a plan to expand this operation as well.
We could never have grown this garden if it wasn’t for the “community” part of “Community Supported Agriculture.” The support from our shareholders has been the backbone of our farm for so many years. Each subscriber has helped us teach countless kids about gardening and dozens of interns the ins and outs of farming. They’ve even helped bring joy to many Sisters of Providence as they get those much-anticipated fresh tomatoes!
