Oops. Need to hurry. No. Need to slow down. Dinner again.
Food.Questions. What to get? How to make sure it is fresh? Wholesomely grown? Into the stream of living, the constant question of food and nourishment touches us all and every day. If you cannot have your own vegetable garden then consider the next best thing, a local CSA farm.
A CSA farm is a relationship between a community of members and the farmer.
You pay a fee up front and the farmer spends his time growing crops to feed you during the appropriate seasons. Here are the what, hows and whys of this particular CSA.
Lindentree Farm CSA, in its 20th year, certified organic, is located in Lincoln, MA, serving approximately 190 shares, the local Farmers Market and the” Field of Greens” for a food pantry in Cambridge. MA.
PICK UP IS AT THE FARM. The season runs from
June through October, approximately 20-22 weeks.
We offer TWO SIZE SHARES. A LARGE share is intended to feed a family of four or more, and a SMALL share approximately ¾ as much, enough to feed two vegetable-happy adults. Large shares are sometimes split between two families, small shares are not designed to be split. When shares are split there is a limit of ONE CAR on the property due to limited parking space.
All new members are required to come to a preseason orientation at the farm for membership.
Dates are included with the application.
Lindentree Farm CSA includes a work commitment from each adult member for a total of four hours during the season, March through November.
We offer WORKSHARES at specific times during the week for those who have time but not income, or those who want to learn about growing, farming. Some are outside in the fields, some are in the CSA with the members. Please contact us for further information.
And then, we also offer you the freshest, local, seasonal produce possible, fruits, herbs, flowers are all included in your share, as are also sunlight, bugs, fresh air, fragrant dirt, new experiences in eating.
A share of apples is also available from an IPM orchard in Groton.
We invite you to join us and look forward to sharing the summer with you.
