CSA at Tomato Mountain Farm

 "CSA" stands for Community Supported Agriculture.
Think of it as a subscription for high quality food and a relationship with a local farm. Most people don’t know much about food production on a commercial scale, so part of our goal is to provide the vicarious experience of small scale food production. We offer garden fresh vegetables, recipes that help you expand your lineup of kitchen strategies, and newsletters that give you an inside scoop into the ups and downs of running a food growing operation.  
The Reality
Participating in a CSA is a commitment to eating well, with the seasons. Our CSA is a year-round, weekly box (bi-weekly in Winter) of certified organic produce we deliver to your door. We grow most vegetables, doing our best to offer basic staples and interesting variety throughout the year. With a CSA you take responsibility for what you eat. Although we offer more variety throughout the year than most CSA’s, we are in the Midwest, and there are limits. We’ll never have tomatoes in April, or melons in November. That said, we do our best to extend the seasons with over an acre of hoop houses, and offer as many unique specialties when we can. We grow the best tomatoes and watermelons you’ll ever have. We also offer the best of what our fellow farmers have to offer. A CSA is a lot like buying a new bike or gym membership. In each case, you still need to do the work.
 
What Makes Tomato Mountain Unique?
 
Protective Hoop Houses
With 22 hoop houses that cover over an acre, we can offer high quality crops over a longer season. These hoops enable us to grow and harvest the best spinach you’ve ever had in winter, plentiful greens from early spring through late fall, and some of the sweetest and most flavorful tomatoes anywhere. Hoop houses allow us to more reliably produce the most flavorful, high quality food year round by providing protection from severe cold/thunderstorms and excessive moisture.  
 
On Farm Kitchen
To fully utilize our bountiful summer harvests, we have a processing kitchen in which we roast and preserve tomatoes, peppers, and winter squash. We jar our whole roasted tomatoes, and we vacuum pack/freeze roasted butternut squash and fire roasted peppers, all of which find their way into late fall and winter boxes.  
 
Add Ons from Tomato Mountain and Our Farmer Friends
Each week you’ll be able to order “Add Ons” that we’ll deliver with your box. These can be  produce or products from our farm, or they can be from other farms we’ve partnered with. Over the years, we’ve developed relationships with fellow farmers who share a similar dedication to high quality and responsible growing practices. Tomato Mountain is happy to share these relationships with our members by offering a diverse range of produce and products including organic eggs, grass fed cheeses, honey, maple syrup, sunflower oil, mushrooms, seasonal fruit and more.
 
Sneak Peak and Newsletters
We’ll email you a sneak peak each week, a few days before your box arrives. You’ll know what to expect and be better able to plan your regular shopping. To keep you up on the nitty gritty of what we’re doing to run the farm, we’ll send you a weekly newsletter. This transparent look inside our farm is likely to surprise you from time to time. Written by Chris, the farmer/owner, our newsletter is a bit of a sounding board, used to express and process what’s going on at the farm. You’re sure to get an unedited version of the problems we’re working through.
 
Recipes and Information
Our website has information about the crops we grow, tips for vegetable storage and recipes. We’re always working to improve and expand our inventory of cooking ideas, and encourage people to write us about recipes they use to turn our farm produce into great meals.
