CSA Information

THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST,  BUT WE ARE FULL FOR THE 2015 CSA SEASON.  If you missed the boat, please inquire early in 2016 (March/April). 

Looking for the freshest produce for the upcoming growing season and live in Fergus Falls, Detroit Lakes, Vergas, Pelican Rapids, or Cormorant area? Become a member of Lida Farm's CSA program.  2015 will be our 10th season operating a CSA in Otter Tail County.  Your membership is not only a means to good produce, but also a way to support a small family-operated farm in your neighborhood.  

To sign up, fill out our order form!

SHARE TYPES
We offer two kinds of CSA shares: a full/family share where you receive a 3/4 bushel box of what's in season every week for 16 weeks and an every-other-week share where you receive a box, well, every other week over the same time.  

Full share (bushel box each week for 16 weeks):
  • Pick up at farm - $435 (receive 2014 price if sign up by March 15)
  • Delivered - $485 (receive 2014 price if sign up by March 15)
Every-other-week share (bushel box every other week): 
  • Pick up at farm - $235 (receive 2014 price if sign up by March 15)
  • Delivered - $265 (receive 2014 price if sign up by March 15)
WHAT'S IN A BOX
In each bushel box you'll receive a mix of what's in season (between 8-12 different crops).  The early season boxes will obviously be different than late season boxes.   We are a certified organic operation so all our crops are grown without any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.  We concentrate on the staples like lettuce, tomatoes, and sweet corn, but we also make sure to mix it up with some interesting crops too.


EVENTS 
CSA members are invited to attend a few on-farm events we will be hosting this upcoming season where you'll have a chance to see the farm, pick some veggies, and maybe get your hands dirty.  We want you to see first-hand the care we take into providing you the best produce and give you a chance to experience the farm for yourself.  All members are also invited to attend our annual harvest party at the end of the season.  We're also looking to do a preservation class this season too.  

DELIVERY TIME AND AREA
Although most CSAs do dropsites, we deliver right to your door.  We will deliver to your home or business in Pelican Rapids, Detroit Lakes, Vergas, Cormorant, and a lot of the lakes in between on Friday afternoons (3-5 pm).  We also have a limited number of shares available at a dropsite in Fergus Falls on Tuesdays.  


PASTURED POULTRY
Besides the produce we also will be raising whole chickens again this year for $3/lb. You have the option of reserving how every many you'd like on the order form below and they'll be available for pickup when done.
