  • CSA FAQ | Green Gate Farms
    the reasons why you should join for the entire season to relish the bounty 4 What are your growing seasons Most of our members join for our entire growing season which is approximately 44 weeks a year Our Spring Summer season which is usually 20 weeks long begins mid to late March and wraps up at the end of July Our Fall Season which is usually 12 weeks worth of food in 10 weeks begins at the end of September and goes through mid December Our Winter Season is usually 10 weeks and goes from January to mid March Our start dates are entirely dependent upon the weather Rain permitting we begin as early as we can each season Though we prefer members to join for the whole season you can join for the first or second half 10 weeks each of the Spring Summer season Likewise you can join as an Alternating Member meaning you pick up food every other week Because we are small family farm with no full time administrative staff we need to keep systems as simple as possible What does not work for a traditional farmer run CSA like ours is to drop in and out during the season If you d rather not support a farm for a season consider trying a third party food delivery service that gathers food from many sources like Greenling designed to juggle customers that come and go 5 What makes your farm different from other farms Each farm is like a fingerprint influenced by a whole host of factors ranging from location to the grower s personality Here are some of the ways our farm is different We are a one stop shop At our farm stand which is open to the public Tuesday Friday and Saturday you can get the freshest certified organic vegetables flowers herbs dairy meat eggs honey and other local goodies in a remarkable historic setting Our open door policy gives the public access to an in town sustainable historical farm for learning and relaxing We are family friendly Guests are welcome to come to Fridays at the Farm a time to relax and enjoy the Children s Garden complete with sandbox and treehouse from 10 am on We created New Farm Institute a 501 c 3 to expand our on farm education for people of all ages In addition to developing the first Incubator Farm in Texas for beginning farmers upcoming on farm workshops for the public will include beekeeping butchering farm equipment repair livestock care horse pigs and other activities like day and weeklong camps for kids and adults Finally prior to farming we were public health professionals Our work at the American Cancer Society and Centers for Disease Control has played a large role in shaping the mission of our farm One of our priorities continues to be addressing the fresh food needs of underserved families living in the food desert that surrounds our farm That s why we accept WIC vouchers Lone Star card run a farm stand accept volunteers offer scholarships to our Kid s Farm Camp and partner with organizations like Sustainable Food Center 6 What makes your CSA different from others We are fortunate that our farm is located in a beautiful historic setting The farm was created by the Bergstrom family the Swedish family Austin s airport is named for in 1902 This setting has inspired us to share the farm with CSA members as much as possible CSA members are encouraged to volunteer on the farm and to attend events Members receive advance notice about dinners and discounts on cooking classes Farm Camp and other activities held here CSA members often suggest and organize events like birthday parties family picnics and yoga in the hayloft We are committed to feeding the under served in our neighborhood which is why we have a Sponsored Share program that benefits children fighting obesity induced health issues Anyone can sponsor a share so please consider participating in this program
