We’re looking for members for 2014

It’s annual membership drive here at Lida Farm.  We’re finally starting to come out of hibernation and looking towards the next farm season.  But to make things happen, we need you.  Check out details about the CSA on the 2014 CSA Information page.  If you sign up between now and March 15, you’ll receive a free copy of an excellent cookbook to assist you to eat through the season called Simply in Season (one cookbook per membership).

A few CSA shares available for 2012 season

Our first CSA delivery of fresh in-season produce will be coming up in a few weeks.  We’re a small operation which is totally family run.  Maree and I both the owner/operators and the entire workforce of Lida Farm (plus three kids under the age of 7, but they are not great contributors yet).  Last year I harvested for and assembled about 30 shares each Friday.  We currently stand at about 27 shares, so it’s not too late to sign up.

Our season runs for 16 weeks (Mid-June through Mid-October) and we also do every-other-week shares for couples or families which just want to try out a CSA.  The cost is $450 for a full share delivered directly to your home or $250 for every other week.  We also give a $50 discount if you pick up at the farm yourself (at $400/season, this is $25/week).  Besides the produce we will also be hosting a few events on-farm for the 2012 season for our members.  Check out details under “Join our CSA” on this website or get a hold of us at lidafarmer@gmail.com or 218-342-2619.
