Our CSA Program: What it is and how it works
CSA is an acronym for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA members pay a set price before the growing season and in this way share in the risk of farming. Members in turn receive a share of the garden‘s harvest each week. CSAs are a great way to build relationships with your produce growers. You know exactly where your food is coming from and can see how it is grown.
In addition to a weekly bag of fresh produce your membership will include weekly newsletters and recipes specially designed for produce from the farm. The produce will be picked up on Tuesdays from 4-6 at our farm in Boone. We will offer HALF shares on Thursdays only and they will be picked up at
the Boone Farmers Market from 4-6pm.
Wilber‘s Northside Market offers a 15-week CSA program starting June 11th. Our $325 full share is around $20 of produce per week. Our $175 half share is around $10 of produce per week. We will be growing sweet corn, melons, several tomato varieties, cucumbers, sugar snap peas, cabbage, several pepper varieties, onions, eggplant, winter squash, zucchini, pumpkins, green beans, and more!

We are not a supermarket!
The vegetables that you find each week in your share are what we are harvesting at that time, and you will NOT be able to pick and choose as in a market. This requires a commitment on your part to be more flexible and adventurous with your cooking and eating habits. Each crop has a preference for certain growing conditions. There are some things that we cannot grow at all, and others that have a very limited season in Iowa. Part of the commitment is to learn to eat what is in season here in our local area. We might provide an ‘extras‘ box where you can swap one or two items that may be more to your liking, or select from extra items.
