Where to Purchase Local Food – Winter 2018

While many of the farmers’ markets close at the end of November, there are still many opportunities to support local producers and farmers all year round, whether by the only all-year growers’ market in Grants Pass, CSAs, or farmstands and stores. If we have missed a place, let us know by contacting us here.

Barking Moon Farm Winter CSA – Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a practice of farming that focuses on high quality food production using organic methods. Our Community Supported Agriculture program aims to promote locally-grown food and build relationships between the farmer and neighbor. We are committed to organic farming and whole farm sustainability. We believe the CSA model is a perfect way to achieve these goals.

The boxes include a variety of winter vegetables including tender greens (salad mix, mustard greens, mache), coarse greens (mixed kales), green cabbage, alliums, rutabaga, napa cabbage, sweet winter carrots, turnips, beets, radishes, and other seasonally available items, a nice supplement for two people.

This CSA operates December-February. The cost for one share for the whole season is $210, or $35/box. Pickup at various locations in the Rogue Valley.
