Common Ground Farm (CGF) is a for profit community sustained agriculture (CSA) farm that was started in 2009 by John and Pat Joslin. Our mission is to promote healthy life styles by offering locally grown organic produce to those who wish to join in the cooperative through the purchasing of shares in the annual crop. While our produce is not certified organic it is grown following organic standards without involving the bureaucracy and its exorbitant fees. Only organic and natural fertilizers, and organically certified pest or disease control products are used in the growing of the crops. No genetically altered or chemically treated seeds are used in planting.
How does the coop work?
Individuals may purchase an individual, couple, or family size share in the upcoming season’s crop. The number of shares is determined by the estimated yield of the area under planting. A person or family may purchase a half or full share based on their need. Then each Friday and Saturday during the growing season starting in November and running until June 1st the member may pick-up their share on either Friday or Saturday at the farm. Other pick-up arrangements must be made with farm staff ahead of time.
Pick-up time is on Friday from 4-6:30pm and Saturday from 9-11am.
You will need the following forms to complete and bring with you to the farm..
- A one time full payment (Either at the farm or online using the by selecting the share option that best fits your needs below)
- Payment monthly to be paid off by October 1st.
- In any portion you prefer to be paid off by October 1st.
