“Going to Alternative Roots Farm to pick up our Fall Share is something we really look forward to. It’s fun to see the animals! The vegetables are great and beautifully displayed. Heading out to the farm makes us “town folks” feel like we are part of the harvest season.” -Yvonne & Lee, CSA members

It’s that time of year again! Join us for our fourth season of Fall CSA. Enjoy the bounty of the season, fresh from the farm. This year our Fall Shares focus on the basics and best of the apple season.
