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.
Shares are available for market-style pick up at Gale Woods on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. We do not deliver. The season is mid-June through mid-October (18 weeks). Half shares ($330) and full shares ($615) are available. Half shares feed 2-4 people and full shares feed 4-6 people.
2017 shares will go on sale March 1 at 8:00 AM. Shares may be purchased online or by phone at 763.559.6700 after 8:00 AM on March 1.
To reserve shares online, an account is required.

Youth farmers learn about sustainable agriculture and food production while receiving leadership training and building lifelong learning skills.
