Gertens and Untiedt’s Vegetable Farm will partner again in the Gertens 2014 CSA program. Untiedt’s standards dictate that education be as much as a farm product as the flowers, fruits and vegetables produced on their farm. To be a positive contributing force in their industry, sharing their knowledge of the land and those who possess less understanding of nature and agriculture and lack the opportunity to experience the same. A special farm tour is planned for all Gertens CSA shareholders.
Gertens relationship with Untiedt’s Vegetable Farm is a strong one, supplying Gertens with the best, fresh from the field produce for years. Gertens is proud to partner with a company that is a steward of conservation in the agriculture field. Gertens stands for the same tradition and values.
Gertens CSA is also dedicated to giving back to the community, especially those who have fallen on hard times. Food shelves often receive many donations of non-perishable goods. Gertens CSA aims to bring produce fresh from the growing fields to those in need. If you can’t make a pick-up, have enough produce to get through the week, or just want to give your weeks share to a local food shelf, we will make that happen. We are also thrilled to partner with you and your homegrown produce. Gertens will act as a drop-off for excess produce you have grown in your garden. Together we’ll continue the tradition of helping and improving the local community we serve.
