Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a collaboration between farmers and their customers to create a sustainable, season-long produce partnership, where consumers pay farmers in advance for growing their food. The pre-season income helps the farm cover the upfront costs of the growing season (seeds, supplies, labor, etc.) before the harvest begins in early summer.
Your weekly box of our fresh-picked veggies will contain a delicious selection from Trim Pines Farm's gardens through the harvest season. The 20-week CSA share pick-ups begin, weather-dependent, mid-June and continue through mid-October.
Our shares come in full and half sizes. The share amounts may be smaller in the beginning of the season, while peak harvest will include a great variety and quantity of vegetables and fruit - at times plenty to share with friends, or preserve for post-season enjoyment.
Full share is $610. This share is for a family that enjoys vegetables with every meal or a couple whose diet is heavily reliant on veggies. Peak season goal is over a bushel of vegetables each week.
Half share is $325. This share is for an individual or couple who generously adds veggies to every meal, but doesn’t make them the meal itself; and the family who enjoys assorted veggies in the weekly meal plan. Peak season goal is over a half bushel per week.
Pickup The pick-up location is at Grand Blanc Farmers Market on Wednesdays from 4:30pm to 7pm.

Some of our goals for 2013:
We made an attempt at growing greens in 2012, and the heat & dry were against us. Plugging away, we're going to try it again for 2013! Greens are still a better option in our CSA boxes and other scheduled pickups, than for the farmstand. And...
Taking advantage of our HOOPHOUSES! We built two new large hoophouses in 2012. This means we can have a larger and/or more diverse harvest available in the early weeks of our CSA season. These structures will also mean we expect greater success from our salad & cooking greens, especially for early and late harvests.
