Join Us this Summer

We offer shares 12 months out of the year at the farm, Springdale and St George.

Spring is sold out! 

Summers first share basket will be June 7!

Summer season is 17 weeks. The first harvest is planned for the week of June 5 with the last one week of September 27. Mother nature decides: it could be a week earlier/later or end a week earlier or last a week longer.

This is the most traditional of all the seasons. You do not have to be too adventurous to sign up for this season. Plenty of the main stays that you will recognize and probably have eaten more so then any other season. We still introduce you to and array of healthy new veggies that folks just do not typically eat or find in the store.

What to expect in a Summer Share Basket

We have never had less then 4 different items in a basket and always more in Summer. Sometimes the baskets are full to overflowing and sometimes they are not as full. That is the beauty of living in season! Look to see what our shares have in them each week. http://www.redacrefarmcsa.org/newsletter/

Baskets start out light you might see greens, peas, radishes then it begins to get heavier in August with beans, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and leaves you begging for mercy with eggplant, onions, zucchini pumpkins and winter squash.

Each share comes weekly in a beautiful reusable harvest basket.

When picking up at the farm it is possible to use no plastic bags. All delivered share  baskets of produce come in plastic bags.We know of no other way to keep it fresh.

We think picking up at the farm on Wednesdays noon to 2 p.m., loading your basket from what we harvest and being able to do the occasional u-picks is the best choice and the most economical. If that does not work for you we do offer delivery on Saturday to the Cedar City, St George & Springdale Farmer’s Markets that you can pick up from.

Arrangements can be made if you go on vacation.

Rather volunteer for a CSA share?

Each season we accept a limited number of volunteers for our “Volunteer for Veggies Program”

We have a volunteer for veggies program and just volunteering for locals ( no trade) , a WOOF opportunity, and an intern program. This is the volunteer for veggies program if you want information about one of our other opportunities please contact us!

Not limited to only field work. We need someone and if it is a good fit and you are interested in working the Farmers Markets there are 3 locations ,St George ( May-Nov), Springdale (April-Oct), and Cedar City (year round). All Saturdays until 1 as well as a Wednesday market in Cedar City 4 to 7pm  July- mid Oct. We sometimes are in need of computer, tech, social media and other work done as well. It might be possible to do some of this work at your own home. If you have a skill an idea or something to offer that you feel would help the farm let us know what you’re idea is.

Set times & days are preferred. Committing to 4 hours once a week on the same day, 4 weeks at a time gives you the opportunity to do more, to learn different task and get good at them which helps us more too!  If you can not do the same time or day of the week we can work with you the task are just more mundane, i.e. you might just be weeding every time or scooping poop! In exchange for this commitment and work you will receive a Family veggie share for every week you work. You pick up your share the same time as a regular Share Holder, Wed noon to 2 here at the farm. Yes, you come to the farm twice! Once to work your shift and then again to pick up your share. It would be nice for you but not possible for the farm to have everyone do their shift on Wednesday, share day.

The exception is if you come from Springdale or St George we will work something out with you.

If you would like to add any of our other share options, if both the share you want to add on (eggs, fruit, meat, milk, bread, cheese, chocolate, coffee or flowers) and work are available you can add additional hours (we have a schedule for hours needed to work for each share) to your shift or work more than one shift.

If after reading this you are still interested please contact us!

  • At every Farmer’s Market, 10% discount on items from what ever share you currently are signed up for
  • Discounts to classes and events
  • Discount to our annual Farm to Fork Dinner
  • Invites to classes and events for Share Holders Only
  • Each week your share will include the “Weekly Weed” a newsletter that gives you hints and helps on what to do with foods that might be a new adventure for you and how to store your weekly basket of produce.We also have a recipe exchange that includes recipes from our experience of over 25 years of catering and doing events.
