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 offer two CSA share sizes, small and full.
We also offer farm membership cards and a flower share.

:: COVID-19 FARM UPDATE ::
If you are a 2020 CSA member, or considering a membership – we are currently seeding and growing food for your shares! With COVID-19 here, as the situation evolves we may find it necessary to reassess our CSA pick-up style, consider home delivery, or other options to provide local, healthy, sustainable food to our community. If the Plymouth Farmers' Market remains closed, we will still distribute shares to the Plymouth area.

:: 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 (20 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.
:: Customer Testimonials ::
"The farmers at Tilth & Timber are passionate and committed to growing high quality produce while nurturing the land where it is grown." -2019 CSA Member
" You got me eating things I never heard of and they were great. Thanks." -Jon, 2019 CSA Member
"The CSA of 2019 had good variety. I liked the opportunity to swap one item for another. " -2019 CSA Member
"I heard about the CSA toward the end of the season and enjoyed each basket. Some of the selections were new to me and I had fun trying them in different recipes. One night, I made a leek and potato soup with everything inthe basket! I can't wait for my Thanksgiving share." -2019 CSA Member
"We have loved our first year at Tilth & Timber! We did a full share & can’t wait to get another full share ASAP for 2020. We are a budget family and frugal. T&T delivers on quality, quantity and investment. We love that every week we know the food came out of the ground that day. Every week is a rotating variety which we love to improve our gut microbiome. Plus we got to try all new amazing vegetables we never had before. The varieties are nutrient dense. We love knowing that our food is not sprayed and is grown with quality seed and soil. The transparency that this farm has is hard to find. The average age of the farmer is declining without knowledge being passed down. This farm is the future of our community. Could not be happier to get our weekly vegetables from them. It’s a wonderful experience to “know your farmer” when you pick up with Cindy & Troy. In addition we feel more apart of the farm with the pictures/videos they are kind enough to post during their days work on IG/FB. I would recommend a half share to a single person, but definitely a full share for a couple or family." -2019 CSA Member
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.
