ABOUT GATEWAY FARM – The only coop farm in Pinellas County!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is your direct connection to a farmer. In support of clean locally produced food we develop a relationship with our community and our land. We create a unique opportunity for families to receive a weekly share of seasonal produce harvested fresh from our farm.
We share a commitment with our members and hope for a bountiful harvest worth celebrating. Our CSA is for those committed members who pre-pay for a weekly supply of produce. This helps cover our cost for seed, organic fertilizers, equipment, labor, etc. We plan and work the farm to provide the members with an equal share of seasonal produce. The share of produce is available for pick-up every week during the growing season, Nov – May.
Our Share-partners will receive at least 6 to 8 different types of vegetables and herbs each week during the growing season. Our farm grows over 50+ varieties with a focus on unique heirloom vegetables. Every family is different, but your share will supplement your grocery store purchases, bringing up to the gourmet level, and provides enough food for a vegetarian couple or an average family of four.
Our purpose is to provide the freshest, chemical-free produce harvested within hours of pick up! Our produce will be fresh, nutritious and taste like veggies should! We will also include recipes to give you new ideas on how to prepare vegetables you know and those you’ve never tried!
