CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Opportunities

Enjoy sleeping in on the weekends? Want to stop by the farm to get your produce? Join our CSA!

In addition to our weekly vending at local farmers markets we also offer a CSA program to our local customers. (Community Supported Agriculture)  Members buy a share at the beginning of the growing season, and in turn receive a box of delicious produce each week from our farm. Our CSA members enjoy the abundance of the farm, while supporting and interacting with their local growers! Our deep intention to grow and nourish our community with sustainable small-scale agriculture shows in the quality of our work. The idea of a CSA is very traditional and is still quite common in other parts of the world such as Europe and Japan. Check out our “CSA” page for more Info!

Who We Are

Doug and Sarah co-own and operate Schooner Creek Farm along with their amazing children. From the small details such as seed ordering, planning, crop rotation, and accounting to marketing, retail, sales, and physical labor of sowing seeds, transplanting, propagation, weeding, irrigating mulching and harvesting, Doug and Sarah do it all. They have a vision of keeping essential homesteading skills alive, deepening a connection with the Earth, living in harmony, with integrity and by the seasons- all the while growing nourishing food for their community.

When we found our little slice of land in 2010 it felt like coming home. A perfect blank canvas with loamy creek bottom soil- ripe for planting. We are a “no-till” farm, and use poultry and livestock, rotated on our land as well as deep layering of mulch, organic matter and manure to the soils. This method mimics nature by decomposing materials while protecting the precious topsoil, and building soil fertility. Sarah learned about this “no-till gardening” from her mother, as a child growing up with her hands in the soil working at her parent’s plant nursery and landscaping business. Nutrient dense food is our goal!
