CSA Launch Party Giveaway | Vista’s Natural Farm Stand

Party With Us!

It’s good times here at Couple Berry Farms. After months in the making, we are SO excited to be launching our CSA program this next Wednesday!

 

What is CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s origins come from townships that would bring in a farmer to tend to the land. Families in town would all pitch in to invest in the crops that were planned to be planted and tended to. At the end of the growing season, the crops were split amongst the families. Nowadays, the model looks a bit different, but has the same mindset and goal.

Treat yourself & Partner with us

Your local farmers rely on CSA subscriptions to thrive, and as a thank you to you for your support, provide you with weekly or bi-weekly boxes just bursting with fresh fruits and produce, straight from the farm.

In addition to delicious staple items, subscribers enjoy the exclusive tastes of what’s in seasonbut in limited quantity. Like our peach trees. They aren’t mature enough to fill bins at the stand yet, but when the peaches are ripe, those are in the box. When the grapes set on, that goes to you! CSA Subscriptions allow you to get a great variety of tastes while supporting your local farmer and economy.

Find out more and  Sign up for your CSA subscription here!

 

Additional Hours

You guys have been asking, and we listened. In addition to preparing you delicious, weekly boxes on CSA Wednesday (9am-5pm), we are also opening our doors two additional weekdays for you to stop buy and fill your own baskets.  Thursdays and Fridays will be farmers market style at our stand starting next week. Hours will be 1pm-6pm.

2014 Winter Reopening Update

Hey lovely people!

 

We just wanted to give everyone an update on where we stand on a reopening date. January, and now February, have been a busy, busy time here at Couple Berry Farms. Farmer Butch has been tilling, planning, and replanting for the upcoming season. We’ve just received our latest addition of strawberry starters, 3,000 to be exact! This new variety will be able to withstand the hot summer and fall days.

We also had a colorful visitor this week! You can see more photos here.

We also have some very exciting news. We’re making the final preparations for installing a well! This is an incredible opportunity for the farm, as it will provide us with a higher quantity AND quality of water. We’re so happy to begin using fresh water without added chemicals and fluoride from the city water, as we’ve noticed a big difference in the growth and health of our trees since its addition to our water source. We also are going to be able to plant and support even MORE produce to keep up with our amazing customers.
We will be opening March 8th!!

Unfortunately, in order to install the well and prepare the drilling area, we’ve had to spend quite a bit of our time relocating our raspberry patch, so our reopening date has been moved back by about three weeks. We will continue to keep you all updated on our progress, and have photos of the new well (drilling begins next week!).

 

 

Thank you for your support. We can’t wait to see you all again soon.

 

Love,

Couple Berry Farms

Fall 2013 Schedule Changes and CSA Information | Vista’s Natural Farm Stand

Fall at Couple Berry Farms
We are sad but excited to announce that last week was our last Wednesday to be open for the season. Sad, because we know a lot of our customers look forward to stopping in and getting fresh veggies in the middle of the week. Excited, because it’s Fall and we have been busy getting our fall and winter crops in the ground.
Hope to see you all on Saturdays!
Keep your eyes open for our CSA boxes. We will be announcing new availability soon!
Thanks,
Farmer Butch
