GI Acres CSA

2016 was very successful and we are ready to start again.  Kathy and I are already looking at seed catalogs.

Do you want fresh vegetables all summer long but don’t have the time, inclination, or space to grow your own?  Let us grow them for you.  In 2017 we are offering 10 shares to our CSA (Community Supported Agricultural Operation).  The price of a share is $300 due and payable by March 31, 2016.  The growing season will begin toward the end of May or beginning of June and last through the first hard freeze or September.  You can sign up and even pay for your share at CSA Signup.

 

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.
