Community Supported Agriculture - Own Your Share

What is Community Supported Agriculture? (CSA)
It is a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm so it becomes the community's farm, with the growers and shareholders providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. A CSA's focus is usually on a system of weekly deliveries or pick up of produce.

The Details
North Star Farms is now offering shares in its 2020 certified organic produce harvest. We will bring our produce to sites in Minot, the Minot Air Force Base, and Kenmare beginning the first week of July and ending in late October or early November. Shareholders come to a site and pick up the produce at a designated time. Home delivery is available for an additional fee. 

Quantity starts with 4-6 items, depending on the spring's progression of growth. The process is repeated once a week for 14-16 weeks. As new items are ready for harvest, they are picked and added to the shareholders' package. This ensures fresh produce all season. Last year we were able to provide 20-50 pounds of tomatoes for canning to the shareholders who requested them.

Early season: shell peas, asparagus, cabbage, kale, green onions, radish, broccoli, garlic.

Mid season: broccoli, onions, carrots, green peppers, okra, zucchini, shallots, tomatoes, cucumbers potatoes.

Late season: tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, cantaloupe, storage onions, leeks, celery, garlic, hot peppers, kale. squash, pumpkin, beans.

Additional products
We also grow items not normally part of a CSA. However, if requested, we can accommodate. Those items include but are not limited to hops, cotton plants, peanuts, fresh flowers, rhubarb and horseradish.

Prices for 2020, certified organic shares haven't changed and are as follows. Full share - $575, half share - $400. Shares are on a first come, first serve basis. Your share is not reserved until we receive payment.

If interested in a CSA share but you still have questions please leave a message on our North Star Farms Facebook page.

When you are ready, complete the Membership Form and mail with your personal check to the address on the form.  Delivery to your home or other location is a one time fee of $75 for the season. Complete Delivery Form. Credit or debit cards are not accepted at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Seasonal Eating Adventure
We pledge to provide you with both familiar and interesting crops grown each week that are certified organic. Since nature is in charge, crop quanities will vary depending on the season's conditions. We work to bring you the freshest produce anyone can offer. We use high tunnels and our greenhouse to extend the growing season.  Join us in nurturing a truly local foods system. We invite you to come to the farm and see for yourself where your produce is coming from. We frequently give tours.
