About our CSA

What to expect from our CSA

It’s never too soon to pick the farmers who will grow your fresh produce all season long. At Barefoot Farm & Flowers we grow beautiful, healthy and delicious produce for both our own family and for you, our community! Our gardens and fields are lovingly tended to provide fruits and vegetables of the highest quality and amazing variety. Go ahead and taste right out of the crate- we never spray harmful chemicals.

What’s in a typical crate? So much mouthwatering goodness that you won’t know where to begin. How about starting with a full salad? The first week of the season usually bears two heads of Romaine lettuce, a bunch of rainbow radishes, a bundle of touchstone gold beets, garlic scapes, fresh garlic, rainbow chard or dinosaur kale, a pint or two of super sweet strawberries, a few baby zucchinis, a bag of premium cut salad greens, snow peas, and basil.

Our CSA will provide your family with a dining adventure for a full 25 weeks. Each week your farmer will harvest the best produce that is grown in season, to fill your crate. Salad items will be included weekly, along with other seasonal produce as it ripens. Carrots, summer squash, cucumbers, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, sweet peppers, hot peppers…sweet blackberries, fresh plums, crisp apples, melon…too much to list. 

Do you want to make pickles? Can your own tomato products? We’ve got you covered there, too. You can order bulk boxes of pickling cukes and canning tomatoes. Always wanted to try making your own sauerkraut? Kim-chi? Then you’ll want to order extra heads of our cabbage.

As the summer fades into fall and the weather takes a cooler turn our produce will provide a basis for hearty soups and sides. Purple potatoes, kale, onions, winter squash, pie pumpkins- all make eating at home a cozy affair. Along with the produce CSA you will also find options to add on grass fed & finished ground beef, ground sausage from our pastured pigs, and even an option to order a holiday turkey.  Your farmer knows how to feed your family right!

Want to stock your freezer with exceptional meats that were humanely raised and harvested? Our pastured pork and beef shares might be just what you need. You can purchase pork and beef by the side or whole.

How much will it cost? $925 will get you 25 weeks of nourishing, flavor packed local fruits and vegetables grown by your farmer just for you. If that's more produce than you are ready to tackle, sign up for our bi-weekly share. $520 weeks will get you 13 weeks of our farm's best produce. 

Can I make payments? Yes! A non-refundable deposit of $250 paid when you sign up will hold your share. After that, your balance due is broken down into three easy installments. Of course, you can always pay in full at any time. Paying in full helps your farmer to purchase the seeds, soil amendments and equipment needed to start planting right away. 

You can expect your first share between the last two weeks of May and the first week of June, depending on the how the weather has affected the early produce. It will continue for a total of 25 weeks. If you opted for a bi-weekly share, you will pick up on odd numbered weeks beginning in May and continuing through the season for a total of 13 pick ups. 

Where do I pick up my crate? You can pick up directly off our farm in Clatskanie, Oregon or at one of our conveniently located Hillsboro and Astoria sites. Locations and times are listed on the online sign up menu.

I’m in- Sign me up! Welcome to our farm, you savvy eater! Soon you’ll be dishing up some delightful fare. You can conveniently sign up and pay on line using our PayPal option. Find everything you need by clicking here:  Member Sign Up
