Community Supported Agriculture
Buy fresh, buy locally! Gale Woods Farm is not certified organic, but we follow the practices in our gardens.
Purchase shares of produce or farmers market credits online.
The season is mid-June through mid-October (18 weeks). Call 763.694.2001 for more details.
Shares are available for market-style pick up at Gale Woods Farm on Tuesday afternoons. We do not deliver. Shares are $495 and feed 3-4 people.
Shareholders receive 5–20 pounds per week of vegetables (almost anything that grows in Minnesota), fruit (berries and melons), and herbs from the farm gardens. With your share, you’ll receive a weekly newsletter with seasonal recipes and have the opportunity to participate in garden workdays and the annual CSA potluck and Harvest Hoedown.
A farm market is held at Gale Woods Farm every Saturday morning from 9:30 AM–noon throughout the season. Pre-purchased credits receive 20 percent more at the market until their credit runs out (i.e., $200 buys $240 in produce). Credits can be used at your convenience throughout the season; you do not need to come every week.
Those who purchase credits will also receive:
- a weekly newsletter with seasonal recipes
- four free passes to Saturday Morning on the Farm
- the opportunity to participate in garden workdays, the annual CSA potluck and Harvest Hoedown
Cash, checks, and credit cards are also accepted at the farm market.
Daily During Farm Store Hours:
Seasonal produce is available in the Farm Store from early April through November during regular business hours. Cash, check, and credit cards accepted.
For general information about purchasing a CSA share, for any questions, or to be placed on a contact list (the contact list does not guarantee a share but by being on it you will receive the information necessary to obtain a share), call 763.694.2001.
In cooperation with the Carver County Workforce Program, Gale Woods Farm gives youth aged 14-15 the opportunity to work in the gardens and grow vegetables for the shareholders and the Mound-Westonka Food Shelf. Youth farmers learn about sustainable agriculture and food production while receiving leadership training and building lifelong learning skills.
