Did you know...

Swallowtail Farm has a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program that delivers farm-fresh, biodynamically grown produce throughout the school year? That's 30 weeks of healthy food for your family from September to May, grown locally and using sustainable agricultural practices!

The Swallowtail CSA is a great addition for a busy family during the school year, or anyone who wants a steady stream of fresh produce through fall, winter, and spring. At an average cost of $30/week, you’ll be making an investment in the health of your family with a weekly box of delicious, fresh vegetables. At the same time, you’ll play a role in creating a healthy food web in our local community and supporting the responsible stewardship and restoration of local agricultural land.

30 Weeks Over 3 Seasons

The Swallowtail CSA is split into three seasons – fall, winter, and spring. Sign up for a season or get all three for a better value when you sign up for a Full School Year share.
