Community Supported Agriculture
Buy fresh, buy local! Gale Woods Farm follows organic practices in the gardens, though we are not certified organic. Seasonal produce is available in the Farm Store from early April through November during regular business hours. The Farm Market is open to the public on Saturday mornings from 9:30 AM to Noon, mid-June to mid-October. Credit cards accepted.
CSA produce shares and farm market credits are two ways to support the farm and get a better value. See below or call 763.694.2001 for more details.

Farm Market & Credits
Buy Farm Market Credits in Advance
Pre-purchased farm market credits are a great alternative if a CSA share is too much or too little, or if you cannot make it to the farm every week. Credits are available in the amounts of $200, $300 or $400 and give you 20% extra value over retail price. For example, if you purchase $200 in credits, you receive $240 worth of veggies.
Purchase farm Market credits online starting at 8 AM on March 1, 2021.
What Can I Use Credits For?
Market credits can only be used for vegetables — not meat, eggs, or other merchandise.
Do Farm Market Credits Expire?
Credits must be used up by the end of the year you purchased them in. Credits can be used at the Farm Store through the end of the year.
Do I Have To Use Credits at the Farm Market?
No! Credit cards are also accepted.

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.
