First CSA Season Successfully Completed

The second week of October we ended our CSA season.  For 20 weeks we had baskets of food ready for each of our nine members.  It was our intent to sell 10 memberships and we sold nine.  Attached are pictures of the shares from each week.

We plan to offer 10 shares again during the 2017 season.  We have not yet set the price for the 2017 season but it will be more than we charged for the 2016 season.  2016 members have priority for the 2017 season but if you are interested in participating send us an email or give us a call.

About GI Acres CSA

GI Acres is located on the western edge of Grand Island, Nebraska. The garden takes up about half of an acre. We also have chickens, rabbits and bees

Our farm is not USDA Certified Organic and we do not anticipate applying for such status. We strive to produce healthy vegetables using natural methods of fertilizing, building soil, and controlling pests such as insects and weeds. Those healthy vegetables will begin in mid to late May with herbs, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. During the season you can expect a variety of greens, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, squash, corn and potatoes along with tips about how to cook and preserve your weekly share. The season will conclude in late September or early October. We aim for a 20-week season.

We did not grow up on farms but we did grow up in families with large gardens, eating a variety of fresh produce and canning/freezing the excess. We have maintained the tradition of growing and preserving food for our family for the past 20+ years. GI Acres is our attempt to share that passion for good food with our community.
