Community Supported Agriculture
Buy fresh, buy locally! Each season 65 shares of produce from Gale Woods are available. We are not certified organic, but we follow the practices in our gardens. Shareholders receive 6–20 pounds of vegetables per week (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.
Purchase shares of produce online.
Shares are available for market-style pick up at Gale Woods Farm on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. We do not deliver. The season is mid-June through mid-October (18 weeks). Half shares ($325) and full shares ($600) are available. Half shares feed 2-4 people and full shares feed 4-6 people.
Stop by and purchase freshly harvested seasonal produce from the gardens at Gale Woods Farm.

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.
