2013 CSA sign ups now CLOSED! We are looking for 2014 CSA drop sites. Contact us for particulars.
This is the size of our half share CSA box – about half a paper grocery sack. Cost $350 for 18-20 week CSA season. Our full share box is the same width but 4-6 inches taller – about the size of a paper grocery sack. Cost $600 for 18-20 week CSA season, which equates to $30 per week or $17.50 for half shares. Each size share receives 5-10 different items per week.
This is our first CSA box of the 2013 season. It is a half share. This week it is mostly baby veggies but we are excited none the less. The box contains garlic, garlic scapes, mint, kale, mixed baby greens, baby radishes, honey (from friends who live in Wauconda) and our eggs.
2013 farmers markets we will be attending are:
Lake Zurich on Fridays from 3pm-7pm
Wauconda Green Market (once a month)
Spring is here, we have veggies growing and our 12 acres has been planted in pasture seed!
We purchased a herdshare cow and have been learning to milk her and make butter.

15 Midget White Turkeys Arrived April 25
Our Midget Whites are now nearly six weeks old with full wings and ability to fly. They sure are fast and hard to catch!
Goat Milk Soap
Our mama goat, Clover and her kid had to stay at their current farm due to one of the other goats drying up. So we are searching for a new goat and kid. Hopefully, we’ll have them by the end of summer.

Below is a sign featuring some of our product offerings for 2013. Honey, unfortunately will not be available until 2015, if our bees and hives arrive in spring of 2014, as it takes a year to harvest the honey.
