looking for fresh, organic produce? join our CSA!

Do you crave fresh produce? Do you want to support a local, organic farm? Join a CSA!

A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for people to build a relationship with a farm. By making a financial commitment to a farm, the people become “shareholders” of the CSA and receive weekly baskets of produce. It’s a perfect (and affordable) way to eat healthy and support a local farm.

And for the summer, Crunchy Granola Baby has teamed up with Heaven’s Harvest Farm in New Braintree to offer local North Shore residents the opportunity to become shareholders in a CSA.

About Heaven’s Harvest Farm:

Located in New Braintree, Heaven’s Harvest Farm is committed to organic farming and sustainable practices. The farm is certified organic and a member of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA). Currently in their thirteenth year of farming, Heaven’s Harvest grows over 50 kinds of veggies and small fruits. They also pride themselves on their relationship with their shareholders, sending out weekly emails packed with information about the share’s produce and unique recipes.

*Note: Heaven’s Harvest Farm uses organic chicken manure as fertilizer; produce is not grown veganically.

*Note: Produce grown at Heaven’s Harvest Farm include: arugula, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, Chinese greens, collards, cucumbers, daikons, edamame soybeans, eggplant, green beans, green onions, hot peppers, kale, leeks, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, peas, potatoes, radishes, rutabagas, salad greens, salad mix, spinach, sweet corn, sweet peppers, sweet potatoes, swiss chard, tomatoes, turnips, melons, raspberries, strawberries, watermelons, fresh herbs, fresh flowers, summer squash, zucchini, blueberries and cantaloupes.

The Details:
  • A full share is $575, which amounts to less than $40 per week. A half share is $350.
    The season runs for 15 weeks, from June to October.
  • Each week, shareholders will receive a newsletter from Heaven’s Harvest Farm with information about their share produce and unique recipes.
  • Produce will be delivered weekly to Crunchy Granola Baby, although the specific day is yet to be determined. Shareholders then stop by CGB to pick up up their share.

*Note: If any shareholder is unable to pick up their share by the specified date/time, Crunchy Granola Baby will donate it to a Salem charity.
