Quick Overview

What is Gertens CSA?


Gertens CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) consists of a local community of individuals who pledge their support to a farming operation where the growers and consumers share the risks and rewards of the 2014 growing season. Gertens CSA provides whole share and a half share options. Whole shares consist of an assortment of fresh from the field fruits and vegetables that are superior in quality and standards to feed a family of 4-6, half share will feed 2-3 people. Shares will be ready for pick-up weekly from mid-June 2014 through mid-October 2014 (17 total weeks). Any produce not picked up is donated to a local food shelf. When picking up shares, you can opt to leave behind anything you may not want. All of this food will also go directly to the less fortunate at a local food shelf. We continue to be a drop off point for gardeners to donate excess produce. Together we can help feed the hungry instead of letting food go to waste.


There will be weekly coupons for those who sign-up for our CSA program. We also will extend the coupon offer to anyone who has planted an extra row in their garden and bring in a share each week to be donated (please drop off the donation between business hours on Tuesday and Wednesday).

Gertens Partner

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.

Tradition

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.

Donating

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.
