WHEN IS THE CSA?
The Diverse Produce CSA season runs from the week of June 21st - November 1st.
During the 20 week season, you will receive 17 shares (schedule for our off-weeks is below)
We are a small operation, and with the pandemic still going strong, we have limited our staff to just 2 full-time workers (Mike and myself).
So - to ensure that all of our members receive the best experience possible - we have decided to intermittently have breaks in our season to catch up on farm planting, cultivating, and other projects.
This also allows our members to have a break, catch up on their share groceries, or to (socially distance) visit the farm!
Week of June 21st
This is the first box of the season! Filled with spring favorites like peas, spring onions, kale, spinach , lettuces + more!
Week of July 5th
JULY 4TH BREAK
July 4th in the rural Missouri is always a stressful time for our animals. This week will be filled with projects to reduce stress for our birds, fill their houses with fun activities, and to ensure they all stay safely inside their pasture.

MID-SUMMER (LAMMAS DAY) BREAK
Our "2nd spring" planting! we will be getting all of our fall crops planted and getting our soil ready for winter.
