CSA Registration for 2021 is now open!
Dancing the Land Farm Veggie CSA
A summer full of colorful, healthful, flavorful, and truly beautiful food, from our farm to you!
Folks can choose between getting a Bushel or a Basket, depending on what suits you and your kitchen! If you're not sure what a CSA is or why you would want to be a part of one, read this.
The Bushel is around $35 worth of veggies each week and the Basket is around $25 each week. We used to say that the Bushel was good for 3-4 people, and the Basket was good for 1-2 people, but everyone eats veggies differently. Some people thought that the Basket was way too much for them and shared their box with another family, and others want two Bushels a week for two folks! (That's totally us!) So I'm including the dollar amounts this year to help you estimate. But do please note that these numbers are an average that we aim for across the whole season. Some weeks will be less, some weeks much more. As a reference, in years past, actual averages have always ended up being a bit higher than our target price point, but that's one of the perks of being a CSA member!
Backwards Bread Add-on! Folks can choose to add weekly, curated loaves from Backwards Bread to their CSA share! Incredible long-fermented local sourdough loaves, pizza crusts, croissants, and so much more!
*We will not be offering a Heritage Meats add-on this year due to extremely high demand of our products. We, as of January 1st 2021, are nearly sold out of our stores. Everything that we have will be available through our website and at Farmers Markets.
**We're not offering an egg add-on this year, so sorry, but we will have lots of eggs for sale at farmers markets and for web-orders! CSA customers are welcome to order eggs each week to be included in their boxes, but we're not offering a pre-order so that we can adapt to unforeseen changes in production (the raccoons messed everything up last year!)
***We're again offering our Sliding Scale Membership where those of us who are able spend a bit more money to help support those of us who would otherwise not have access to a CSA membership. Last year we were able to subsidize 3 more families' access into our CSA program thanks to the joint generosity of us and our members! Yes! Let's see if we can do even better this year! Especially now with COVID many low-income families are needing support to access healthy food. All are welcome here.
It's okay if donation is not in your budget, the regular price is listed below as the Target Price, just choose that option when you check out. This is all on an honor system, we're trusting our customers to be honest with what their financial capacities are.
Specific start dates to be announced once the nature of the coming spring reveals herself, but shares will begin sometime in June, and go into to October for a total of 16 consecutive weeks.
If you don't see a drop-site that suits you, or you would like to suggest a new site in the St. Cloud/Twin Cities area, or become a site host (veggies right to your door each week? YES!), be in touch! We're always happy to work with folks to make getting veggies easy. That being said, new sites may be added in the coming weeks, so check back if no site works with you now.
Flower CSA Membership
A bouquet subscription is to your soul what a veggie CSA is to your belly. Fill yourself with beauty this season! Or give a magical gift to someone you love.
Our flowers are organically grown and beautifully arranged into lush and luxurious bouquets just for our CSA members once a week for ten weeks through the season! Sumptuous dahlias, romantic cosmos and foxglove, bold zinnias, lacy carrot flowers, and cheerful sunflowers; we grow hundreds of different kinds of flowers on our little family farm just south of St. Cloud.
Membership includes a subscription to our CSA newsletter that is packed with photos and farm updates, details about the flowers you're getting each week and often some bigger thoughts to think, as well as recipes and fun things from our Veggie CSA!
Currently we have these pickup locations:
- Lowry Hill Meats in Minneapolis, Tuesdays from 11:00AM-6:00PM
- On Farm, Tuesdays after Noon
- 3119 2nd Ave S, Minneapolis, Saturdays after 2:00
- TBA, St. Paul, Saturdays after 2:30
Specific start dates to be announced once the nature of the coming spring reveals herself, but bouquets will begin sometime in late June or early July, and go into to September for a total of 10 weeks of gorgeous blooms that you won't be able to find in any florist shop or grocery store--unless we're supplying them!
If your summer plans have you traveling up to the cabin a bunch and you feel like you'll miss too many bouquets to participate, check out our Farmers' Market punchcard--an option that gives you the flexibility to travel and adventure while still giving you a flower-filled season, and you're still supporting our farm in our leanest time, which is one of the most impactful reasons why small farmers choose the CSA model!
*We do not offer make-up bouquets if you miss a week, so be sure to get your flowers, or send a friend if you'll be out of town!
