3 TYPES OF SHARES are offered
Main share of vegetables, fruit and supplements
Fresh vegetables and herbs along with fresh fruit in season and ½ doz eggs each week plus cheese, bread, dried fruit and staple grains and legumes in rotation to round out the share providing whole foods for a balanced diet. About 80% of the vegetables are from the Kimberton CSA farm and others are from organic growers in our region. We do our best to provide as much Biodynamic and organic (not IPM) fresh fruit which can be up to 10-12 kinds of fruit in summer/fall and 4-5 in winter/spring (however, this can be unpredictable in the changing climate.)
Main share without bread
This is the regular share with all supplements except for
bread. (Scroll to the end of this page for what is special about our bread). This option if for those who, for
whatever reason, cannot eat the bread. (Looking
for gluten-free bread? There are 3 varieties
that can be ordered separately if desired: Spelt, Rye, and Gluten-Free made from millet,
tapioca, quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat, chia seeds.)
Veggie / Fruit Only
This is the same seasonal fresh vegetables and fruit that come in the Main Share. Perfect for those who want a smaller share or prefer only the fresh food with none of the supplemental eggs, cheese, bread and dry goods.
For a half share, we recommend the BI-WEEKLY option which is receiving a full size share every other week. For those who prefer half share every week, a private arrangement can be made to split a weekly share with a partner.

What is special about our bread?
Our bread comes from Sweetwater Bakery and is made from certified Biodynamic wheat freshly ground on a stone mill, literally hand made, and baked in a wood fire stone oven according to protocol set by Rudolf Steiner ( www.camphillkimberton.org/bakery/ ). All of the bread in CSA shares is 100% whole-grain and slow-rise from sourdough starter rendering it suitable even for many people who are considered wheat intolerant. It is hearty and wholesome, and normally holds up a week or more. We rotate 6-7 varieties for a total of about 10 times in a season. Other varieties are available to order including whole spelt, whole rye, and gluten-free.
