The Bird's Haven CSA

INTRODUCING

As Lee takes more time off the farm this season we look to our long-time employees and sisters Christina and Jessica Bogantz to handle the majority of the CSA and market operation! You will remember their smiling faces from years past.

Our CSA program allows for you to fully experience all a season has to offer. The May season will start slow with lots of greens. Think lettuce, bok choy, spinach, and beets. By peak season in late July to August, you will see a lot of tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet corn, and even watermelon. As the fall season begins, we welcom gourds, winter squash sweet potatoes, and pumpkins! A true localvore season!

2019 SEASON CHANGES

As the CSA has changed so has our family needs. Lee and family will be taking the year to pull back from the farm and take a bigger look at the direction of the farm. With the loss of our daily task master Ann and Lee’s girls growing up quicker than we all anticipated it is important for the family to find a better and more sustainable work/life balance.

In an effort to streamline we will host only two CSA pick-up locations: Granville Tuesday Market and Westerville Wednesday. We will also have one membership type: 20-week Just Right. We will not be attending the New Albany and Canal Market District for the 2019 season.

If you are looking to join the CSA this year you will want to join early. We will be limiting the number of CSA subscriptions this year and Westerville will likely sell out

Community Fund

In our effort to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in eating good and local food we ask for your support with a Community Fund. This fund provides reduced cost shares for those on limited budgets who want to be a part of the CSA. We have taken this idea from our friends over at Village Acres Farm and Foodshed.

Please note that the Community Fund is only applicable to produce share and not add-ons.

Our CSA shareholders are generous and many contribute to our Community Fund in an effort to provide equitable distribution of our harvest. Donations made by our shareholders are matched by the farm. We were able to support four families in 2018.

In an attempt to ensure we are able to honor as many requests as possible, we ask that you attempt to pay for at least half a share, either through a one-time payment or a payment plan. We are very willing to work with each person to arrive at a plan that will work, so please do let us know if you if you have ideas about making a plan that is workable within your budget.

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance from the Community Fund, please complete the form below then sign up online as usual.

Please check our website for current prices. 
If you need more time, please tell us your proposed payment schedule. Some people don’t actually need any money from the fund – they just want to be able to pay in six monthly payments.  That’s great – don’t hesitate to suggest payment plans.
