New this year: U-Pick Herb and Flower CSA
(Community Supported Agriculture)
Four Winds Farm is offering an opportunity for you and your family to pick a broad variety of fresh herbs and beautiful flowers, weekly, for a really low price! Both flower and herb selections will vary through-out the growing
season and will be flagged for easy harvest. In addition, herb recipes and tips will be emailed weekly to members for at least 18 weeks. Scissors and sizing-containers will be set out to make for easy harvesting. Cutting flowers will be planted all around the front herb garden, also near the farm market. PLUS for kids and adventure seekers (like Deborah), there will be a flower path to the back pollinator and fairy gardens, adding an extended sensory experience.
There are 2 options:
1. If you are a pre-paid member of the Terripin Farm’s produce CSA, add $60 for 18 weeks of fresh herbs and flowers ($3.50 a week). Pre-paid. The season begins June 1st.
2. If you are not a Terripin Farms CSA member, you pay $75 for 18
weeks. Pre-paid. Enroll Here – While Shares Last
