By becoming a member of Pheasantview Family Farm Grow For You Gardening™ CSA program, you will receive seasonal vegetables of your choice, based on our predetermined list, grown on our farm as they ripen. The mix of what’s in the box will depend on the season and the selection could be different given any farming challenges that we may encounter. Our produce is all grown right here on our farm and will be harvested one day and delivered the next.
Our season runs Spring through Fall.
We also from time to time offer for purchase homemade baked goods such as breads, cookies, pies and cakes at the drop off site!
Pheasantview Family Farm CSA members also receive periodic newsletters with updates from the farm.

Can I pick what vegetables I want in my row?
Of course but there are restrictions, we provide a predetermined list based on vegetables we have had repeated success with. We try new vegetables each year but will only add them to our list once we've had a couple good seasons. We love to hear what our members have to say about the box contents, please email us.
What if I try it, but it's too little/too much for me?
We do our best to ensure your plants are grown to their full potential. Depending on the weather conditions etc. your plants may produce more than you are able to use or less than you expected. If you have too much, share with your friends! You can always reduce the amount of plants you have next season! If there is less than you expected-- we will keep you updated via email with text and pictures of your plants progress throughout the season. If some plants are struggling due to weather conditions etc. we will let you know. A plant not producing at it's full potential should never be a surprise, you will have an idea prior to receiving your vegetables.
We do not sell 1/2 boxes. If you are splitting a box, it is your responsibility to divide up the produce as you see fit, we cannot be responsible for splitting boxes!
I'm ready to do it! How do I signup?
First, sign up “online”.
After you have signed up, you will receive an email confirmation.
How does it work on pickup day?
We will deliver your vegetables to the pickup location.
I can't make it during pickup hours, can I send a friend to pick up my vegetables?
You can send a friend or extended family member to pick up your vegetables, just make sure they understand that they need to check off and pick up using the member's name. Please remember to respect the pickup hours. We cannot guarantee we will be there if it is outside of the designated pickup times. Usually vegetables that are not picked up are donated to a local food pantry.
Can I pick up my vegetabkes the next day?
Picking up your vegetables the following day could compromise the quality and freshness of the produce.
If you are able to pickup your vegetables the following day at our farm please remember that the farm cannot be held responsible for any damaged or spoiled produce in this situation.
Can I recycle the box/bag my vegetables come in?
Please return boxes/bags to the drop off site when you pick up your new box/bag so we can reuse them.
