2017 CSA Information

SORRY - WE ARE FULL FOR THE 2017 CSA SEASON (please check back in early 2018)

Looking for the freshest produce for the upcoming growing season and live near Fergus Falls, Detroit Lakes, Perham, or Pelican Rapids? Become a member of Lida Farm's CSA program.  

2017 will be our 12th season operating a CSA in Otter Tail County.  Your membership is not only a means to good produce, but also a way to experience and support a small family-operated farm in your neighborhood.  

SHARE TYPES
We offer two kinds of CSA shares: a full 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-Weekly Share (3/4 bushel box each week, 16 boxes):

  • Pick up at drop site or farm - $495

Every-other-week Share (3/4 bushel box every other week, 8 boxes):

  • Pick up at drop site or farm - $255

DROP SITE LOCATIONS
 
1.     MANNA Food Co-op in Detroit Lakes (Fridays)


2.     Clean Plate Grocery in Perham (Fridays)

3.    
Riverview Place  in Pelican Rapids (Fridays)

 
4.     Keller Williams Realty in Fergus Falls (Tuesdays)

 
5.     On site at Lida Farm (Fridays)

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 receive invites to attend on-farm events we host 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. Members have a chance to pick peas, beans, tomatoes, and a pumpkin.

All members are also invited to attend our annual harvest party at the end of the season (last Saturday in September).
