COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
The focal point of our farm is the production of wholesome foods through responsible land management. We farm on 1.5 acres of land located within the greater footprint of Black Brook Ranch, a multigenerational historic farmstead. Although we are not certified "organic", we are a no-spray, zero pesticide farm. We do not use any synthetic fertilizers, and rely on soil health, quality compost, and proactive management practices for the success of our crops. We believe that limited soil disturbance is essential for healthy soil biology and ecology, and impliment a "no-till" policy whenever possible. We strive to provide the freshest, healthiest food possible, so that we all can feel good about what we eat.
We will be offering two CSA share sizes, small and full.

:: Overview ::
When you join our CSA at Tilth & Timber, we are entering into a partnership. While you are committing to supporting the local economy and your family’s health, we are committing to providing you with the most nutritious, responsibly grown, local food possible. Our growing season will revolve around our CSA members. We look to build a strong relationship with our customers and our community. Eating local food is an intimate way to become more connected with our landscape and seasons. We aim to create a farm that is a working part of the surrounding environment. Being as self-reliant and diversified as possible will require less need for outside inputs. The farm is then able to reproduce itself better each year with the help if its own natural ecology.
We offer two share sizes, small and full, to meet the varying needs of our community. The shares are offered as a “market style” pick-up. Beginning in early June through early October (18 weeks) members will receive a portion of the farm’s bounty. You choose the share size you think is best suited for you, and the pick-up day.
Please note that you may sign-up online, however, we offer a sign-up discount to members who choose to mail their sign-up form.
Thank you earth so soft and strong,
Thank you meadow filled with song.
Thank you mountain, forest and stream,
By you we rest and find our dream.
Thank you creatures wild and tame,
Your trust we love and hope to gain.
Thank you for your milk and fleece
And for your meat that we may eat.
Thank you root and leaf and seed
We’ll not forget your wondrous deed.
You hold the earth you catch the rain
You fill the world with air again.
Thank you wind for bringing rain,
Please help our friends who are in pain.
For us who thirst and cry from hunger
Please bring hope, life and wonder.
Thank you moon for guidance and grace,
For heart-bent flowers with dew drop lace.
Thank you sun as day begins,
For golden light by angel wings.
With thankful hearts and open hands,
We ask to share your loving lands.
