The farm offers a wide variety of useful, flavorful vegetables and herbs lovingly grown with attention to soil health and biodiversity.
Boulder Knoll Community Farm’s 2017 season is almost here! This year we are offering a limited number of community supported agriculture (CSA) shares and you are invited to join! Every year we tweak our model to be more responsive to your needs and to enhance the sustainability of our farm. We are committed to the CSA model as a way to live out our educational mission.
As always, soil health is our focus, and that leads to high quality, nutrient dense vegetables for your family. Members will take home fresh produce every other week from mid June through mid October with a week off in mid July. As always you’ll get lots of staples like onions, potatoes, tomatoes, garlic and green beans, and plenty of choices in each share. We plan to provide pick-your-own opportunities for peas, cherry tomatoes, greens, and beans when crops are abundant. Ecologically grown fruit from High Hill Orchard in Meriden is included in the price of your share.
