House in the Woods Farm CSA

When you join our CSA, you: eat from the source; participate in the growth of your food; eat organic, local, fresh and in-season; teach your kids where their food comes from; get your hands dirty; learn how food grows; learn how to garden; eat heirloom vegetables. 


House in the Woods Farm is a certified organic Community Supported Agriculture farm just south of Frederick, Maryland, providing a CSA to our community since the year 2000. We grow a wide variety of vegetables to entice you all season long. What we grow (may vary from this list).


We are a small organic farm that prioritizes the whole farm experience--participating in the growth of your food, getting your hands into the soil, and connecting to this place. Members are invited to family-friendly events, work days, and harvest parties.

In our CSA, you "pick your 8 items" on the farm. At drop-off sites you can pick your items online and a specialized box will be delivered to your drop-off site with your name on it. 


Members choose 8 bunches of vegetables from a list of what is harvested that week--8-12 choices in any given week. Members picking up on the farm select their eight items and pack their own bags. Members picking up at our drop-off sites will receive a box of fresh organic produce grown on our farm, delivered to the designated pickup site. You may choose your items online by the weekly deadline, or we will make a nice "farmers choice" selection for you. 

 

A perk to picking up at the farm is the U-Pick Rows: herbs, flowers, cherry tomatoes, peas and green beans, as available. Members at drop-off sites may plan visits to the farm to help in the fields on a workday, or to pick some flowers and cherry tomatoes and have a farm tour. Members are encouraged to bring the kids so they can meet their farmers and learn where their food is grown.
