Sixdog Farms picks up where Grant Family Farms left off

Sixdog Farms is happy to announce the launch of their new CSA. Sixdog Farms a group of individuals, many of whom formerly worked with Grant Farms, who are passionate about local food and community. During their 30+ year history, Grant Family Farms produced impressive yields of crops from highly fertile organic soils, donated over a million pounds over the last 10 years of produce to food banks and those in need and established the largest CSA in the nation giving thousands of families an alternative to industrial agriculture of local, organic produce.

The new CSA is an entirely separate and independent entity from Grant Family Farms and includes options of fruit shares, egg shares, microgreen shares from Raspberry Hill Farms, cheese shares from Windsor Dairy, MouCo Cheese and Haystack Dairy, and mushroom shares from Hazel Dell Mushrooms.

The season will be 26 weeks starting the week of June 17, with a delivery every week to a pickup location in your area. For share details visit the website at SixdogFarms.com.

Sixdog will not be offering a veggie share this season, but intend to offer it in the coming year as they rebuild organizationally and financially.

Though their name has changed, their mission and values remain the same. The mission of Sixdog Farms CSA is to:
1. Connect folks with the place their food comes from.
2. Make fresh, nutritious, local, and sustainably grown/produced food accessible and affordable.
3. Build a food system and a community that is environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable.
4. Educate and empower folks so that they can make wise food choices.
5. Revive a direct link socially and financially between farmers and tables as well as people and their food source.

In a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, members of a farm sign up in advance for a season’s share of goods from the farm’s harvest. They then receive a weekly portion of their goods for the entire season. This creates a sustainable food system, in which the farm’s production costs are covered up front before the season, and the members’ food costs are also locked in for the season. The members commit to supporting and partaking in the farm and the farm commits to supplying the members with goods. In this way, the system is direct, mutually beneficial, and sustainable.
