Join Us for the Best of Summer

We offer shares 12 months out of the year at the farm in Springdale and St George.
Our traditional full 20 week Summer is sold out!

We are offering “THE BEST OF SUMMER”

Best of Summer is 10 weeks. The first harvest is planned for the week of July 20, with the last one week of September 21. 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. https://www.redacrefarmcsa.org/newsletter/

Baskets start out light 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 baskets 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. For a bit more 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”

Not limited to only field work, we need computer,tech and other work done as well. Some work can be done at your own home.This is a structured program with set times, dates, and place. You must commit to 4 hours once a week, 4 weeks at a time. We ask for this commitment so we know in advance who will be coming when and where and that they are trained on certain tasks as we do not have time to retrain people every week. In exchange for this commitment and work you will receive a Family veggie share for every week you work. If you would like to add any of our other options (cheese, eggs, honey, fruit, etc…) you can simply add additional hours to your shift or work more than one shift. If you are interested please send an email ,call or text.

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.
