Do you live in the Napa Valley? If so, you may want to check out our Clif Family Farm CSA boxes. We are thrilled to announce our CSA Farm Box program. There is a lot going on at our farm this year including honey bees, getting our first harvest off of our new olive orchard and the planting of an extensive vegetable garden. Now we're ready to share some of the bounty from the farm with our local neighbors.
You may be wondering...what is a CSA box?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In recent years , CSA boxes have become a great way for consumers to buy local and seasonal foods directly from a farm. Local consumers purchase a weekly subscription from the farm, in turn receiving a weekly box of fresh produce. It’s a great way to connect directly with a farm and build a relationship with local farmers.
So what's our box all about?
The offerings in the Clif Family Farm CSA box will vary from week to week. A sample box may include a selection of Santa Rosa Plums, flavored king pluot, cucumbers, corn, tomatoes, eggplant, nectarines, and chard. Each week will bring a new assortment of fruits and vegetables, all grown right on Clif Family Farm. And since we became CCOF certified last year, you can be assured that all of the fruits and veggies are grown organically.
Our Clif Family Farm CSA box will cost $25 for each week. Your box can be picked up every Friday starting on June 25th at our winery offices located at 1312 Vidovich Avenue in downtown St. Helena. Pickup times are from 8am to 5pm on Fridays. The summer program will run through October 15th.
