Rise Up Farms is now accepting new CSA members for the Summer 2015 season! Paid shares and work shares are available. Our CSA members keep the farm going, and it’s a great way to eat well and be part of the local food movement! There are a few new features in 2015:
- Rise Up Farms is now Certified Naturally Grown! The Certified Naturally Grown program requires exactly the same growing practices as Certified Organic.
- Cut flower shares are new this year! We will offer rustic bouquets each week for seven weeks this summer.
