Good Seed CSA is a subscription based market located right on the farm. Members of Good Seed come by the farm weekly to choose from a selection of freshly harvested organic produce for their home. By choosing to be a member of Good Seed, you cut out the middle man and become engaged directly with the farm where your food is grown.
Truly Fresh. Truly Local.
When you come by the farm to pick up your weekly produce, you know that what you are getting is the freshest, most nutrient dense vegetables and fruit for you and your family. All produce offered is grown right on the farm just yards from the market space. It is harvested hours before you pick it up, so it is the freshest produce you could purchase. You will be able to talk directly to your farmer to learn more about how your food is grown.
How does Good seed csa work?
When you sign up to become a member of Good Seed CSA, you will be contacted by Tracy, who is one of your farmers. Once your subscription season begins, you will be asked to come out to Genesis Organic Farm Tuesday evenings from 4pm - 6pm to pick up your weekly produce. You will get to choose from a selection of freshly harvested vegetables and fruit to fill your shares for that week. A weekly menu will be emailed out to members prior to pickup so that you will be able to plan meals before you pick up your food.
How do I become a member?
You can email Tracy at Tracy@GenesisOrganicFarm.com or give her a call at 559-852-7901. To secure your membership, a down payment of 1/3 of the cost of your membership will be required.
Where do I pick up my produce?
Pick up location is at Genesis Organic Farm 7595 Central Valley HWY Hanford, CA 93230. The market space is located under the shade next to the big green house.
When Do I pick up my produce?
Every Tuesday evening from 4pm - 6pm.
How do I pay for my membership?
We currently accept cash and check for payments. Checks can be made out to "Discovery Gardens."
Are there payment plans available?
Payment plans can be worked out on a case by case basis.
How much food is in a share?
Shares are determined by how much is harvested that week coupled with current market pricing for each crop. If each share is worth $4, then you will receive $4 worth of that crop for your share.
Can I purchase extra shares?
Yes; extra shares will be available to purchase at current market pricing.
I'm going out of town; what happens to my shares?
Ideally, we would appreciate being notified when you will miss a pick up so that we do not harvest too much food. If notified in advance, we can work out how to handle your missed shares. In the past, members have simply picked up extra shares in future weeks; or they have transferred their membership to friends and family while they are out of town.
We are currently accepting new members for our Winter 2017 season.
Winter Season Begins November 7, 2017 and runs until March 20, 2018.
Winter crops are hearty and full of nutrients to keep you healthy throughout the chilly nights. This winter, we will be growing these vegetables*:
DISCLAIMER: Though we work to insure that we have the most productive harvest humanly possible, farming is never a guaranteed outcome. If an emergency arises that cuts the season short, your membership payment will go towards sustaining the farm. You will be offered compensation in the form of extra shares or a discounted rate in future seasons.
* Not all vegetables may be available this season.
