Seven Springs Farm CSA

Spring:

Expect to find lots of fragrant fresh green leaves, like the lettuces, mixed salad greens, spinach, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, and green cabbage. Also look for broccoli, scallions, radishes, and baby beets. These are the wonderfully invigorating, nutrient dense tastes our ancestors longed for after a winter without fresh vegetables.

Summer:

You can look forward to all of the big juicy fruiting vegetables we look forward to all year; tomatoes, summer squash, cucumbers, green beans, peppers, and eggplant plus basil, parsley, and carrots. All of our favorite picnic fixings are in this group; think green bean salad, sliced cucumbers, and caprese salad made with thick slices of sweet tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, and big green leaves of fresh fragrant basil.

Fall and Early Winter:

Look for the tubers and roots and cool weather vegetables that make members dream of hearty pots of stew or pans of slow-roasted, caramelized root vegetables; potatoes, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes, winter squash, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, salad greens, and leeks. These are our ‘comfort vegetables’ and help get us through the long winter months until spring brings us back to fresh green things again.

Seven Springs CSA is a Community Supported Agriculture farm in the mountains of Southwest VA. Delivery in Roanoke, Floyd, Blacksburg & on the farm.

We grow the freshest, healthiest food possible using only organic and biodynamic practices.

Bramble Hollow Farm Meat CSA

A Meat CSA from Bramble Hollow Farm is a good option for you if you like the convenience of having healthy pastured meat at your fingertips but don’t have the freezer space to purchase in bulk.  By receiving a monthly share, you can enjoy a variety of healthy, clean meats throughout the farming season without having to make plans to visit the farm or farmer’s market.  Subscribing to a CSA also guarantees you products for the season instead of taking your chances on a trip to the farmer’s market when what you want might not be available.

Please visit the Bramble Hollow Farm website for more information about shares.
