What is Gertens CSA difference?
Many CSA drop-off content locations are outside on sidewalks or black top parking lots leaving CSA's exposed to a variety of weather conditions. We store our farm fresh produce in a climate controlled onsite facility to assure freshness from the field. That's a huge difference in taste and freshness.
For the past years, Gertens relationship with our field partners Jerry and Paul. is a strong one, supplying Gertens CSA customers with the best, fresh from the field produce and continue Gertens is proud to to be stewards of conservation in the agriculture field. These are tradition and values Gertens has strived to achieve.
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.
