IOWA GROWN CSA
WE PROUDLY GROW...
over 100 types of vegetables, fruits, fungus, flowers and herb varieties on our family farm using organic practices (we are not organic certified). In 2018, we began offering a CSA to a few neighbors, and now our CSA has grown to serve over 60 families in the West Branch, Iowa City, and Solon areas!
Our weekly summer shares are designed for smaller households and moderate fruit and vegetable eaters. That way you can enjoy local produce with less waste and still shop your local farm stand for more of what you love!
MEMBERS SHARE IN THE BOTH THE RISKS AND BENEFITS OF FARMING.
At Iowa Grown, we are proud that we have been able to provide weekly shares that meet or exceed the value of member's investments. The last few years have been bountiful and productive! It's worth noting that things can go wrong on the farm, and your share is a reflection of what our farm is experiencing and producing, whether that be bountiful harvests or crop failures. For more information about what it means to be part of a CSA, please visit LocalHarvest.org for details.
Can I choose what is in my weekly share? We are unable to specialize each share. We do include lots of staple items that you use everyday but it's good to know someone you can share your unwanted produce with. Be prepared to include vegetables into most of your meals.
What if I forget to pick up my share? We recommend creating a weekly reminder in your phone or on your calendar. Any unclaimed shares at the end of pick up will be donated to our farm neighbors in need. We will not save or hold missed shares. Be on time to pick up your share ,or send someone to pick up your share if you can't make it.
What if I go on vacation and miss my share? Your shares can be delivered to a neighbor (Tuesdays), picked up by a friend (Thursdays) or donated to the local pantry (both days). Just let us know in advance what you'd prefer.
I am on your delivery CSA; what should I do if I'm not home? We recommend leaving a cooler at your front door or in a shady spot; we'll place your share in there. We have many stops on our delivery route, so we will simply knock and leave your share at your door.
Can we come to the farm? We encourage members to see where their food comes from! Please watch for farm events and tours in 2022 on our social media, website and emails.
