A CSA is a investment in a farm and a farmer. On our farm, we plant, grow and harvest based on the season and pest pressures. We won't have kale, broccoli or cabbage during the summer months due to pest pressures that love hot weather and Brassicae crops. We will have sweet potato greens, amaranth, hibiscus and jute leaf -greens grown and enjoyed around the world, that grow well during the summer heat.
