Hello, my name is Chris Barnes. I hail from the hills and hollows of the Allegheny Plateau of West Virginia. It is an honor and privilege to offer a CSA ("Community Supported Agriculture") from Clayfield Farm to you.
This is the first CSA of my own design and management. With a decade of farming experience and with Deborah and Phil as mentors, I'm confident that your shares will impress. Weekly selection will vary slightly but always offer a complete array of your favorite ingredients plus specialty vegetables throughout the season.
A core principle to my farming is to always select plant varieties that are celebrated for having roots in the region. This year's crops are largely open-pollinated varieties from New England, many in Maine. It is my intention to offer varieties that stand out in flavor and stand up to a changing climate regionally.
Shares will be free choice, meaning you may hand pick your own assortment of vegetable bunches in accordance with the number of shares you’ve purchased.
Share pick ups will be on Thursdays at Founders Hall in East Blue Hill from 3:30-5:30 p.m. beginning in June and ending in September or October for 16 consecutive weeks.
1 share is enough for one adult to eat from at least 7 vegetable bunches weekly for the duration of the share.
Prices below are on a sliding scale and full amounts for the 16 weeks.
Half share: $175-$250
1 share: $300-$375
2 shares: $425-$500
3 shares: $550-$625
I look forward to providing a product and an experience that is emblematic of Clayfield Farm's devotion to Blue Hill, environmental stewardship, and the continuance of community focused farming generation after generation.
