Help Grow our Farm!
Secure/Ensure your local
food supply.
We’ve tweaked the typical CSA
model to serve you, our customers,
in (3) ways:
1. Purchase What You Want
You choose what your family needs
for that week.
2. When You Want
If you’re out of town, take a week or
two off. We’ll have great produce &
products for you the next time
you’re back.
3. At The Markets
We sell at the Ketchum, Hailey,
Boise, & McCall Markets each
week. As well as a few others.
We’ll have your account on file at
the market each time you shop. You
can also call or email a pre-order to
us (no later than the the day before
the market) and we will have it
ready and waiting for you at the
start of the market, for quick pickup.

Starting in 1995 our small family
farm has grown into a healthy highly
productive piece of land. In 2011 we
started making many improvements
and investments that would keep our
farm going for the next 15-20 years
and beyond. These included larger
walk-in coolers, updated and
additional irrigation systems, a barn
remodel and commercial kitchen; to
keep your produce fresh and give
you a larger selection of fruits and
vegetables, as well as value added
products, extending the season.

With our growing business we’ve
realized a need for a larger capital
start-up. With your help, we can
offset some of the money that we
make later in the season, using it to
help with the start-up costs, helping
us to do more early, and make more
available to you, all year!
During the first two and a half
months of our season (Feb. 1st -
April 15th) we purchase Seeds,
Plants/Trees, Soil, Organic
Fertilizers; pay Market Fees,
Insurance, Fuel, Farm Help, etc. All
this during our slowest time of year,
income-wise. (The first true farmer’s
market of the year, the Capital City
Public Market, starts mid-April in
This year our start-up budget is
October thru February
Our goal is to sign up 20 customers at
$500 ea. and 20 customers at $250 ea.
With sign ups starting now, and going
through April 15th.
Each share will receive an equal retail
value of our delicious Fruits, Berries,
Vegetables, Cut Flowers and Value-
Added Products (Dried Fruit, Canned
Goods, etc. from our commercial
kitchen) plus a produce or product
dividend of 10% on your money
Please consider joining us by purchasing
a share of the Farm for the 2014 season.
We really appreciate all the great
support these past over the years and are
looking forward to sharing the fruits,
berries, flowers and vegetables of our
labor with you all for many years to
