About Our Program

Geauga Family Farms CSA is a cooperative of five certified-organic family farms located primarily in Geauga County. The majority of these farms are owned and operated by Amish families. The inclusion of multiple farms means that a wider variety of produce is available for our customers.

Summer CSA

A mid-summer family share

A typical medium mid-summer share

Our 20-week summer program begins in early June and runs through mid-October. Shares are delivered weekly to pick-up sites all across Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Summit and Trumbull counties. Many items in the shares will vary as the season progresses. We sold out last year. To be sure you get your share of locally grown produce, send in your application now or sign up online. When availability allows, we also offer a 15-week program beginning in July.

There are three sizes of shares available:

  • A small share will provide enough produce for one person to have several servings throughout the week.
  • medium share will provide enough produce for two to three people to have several servings throughout the week.
  • large share will provide enough produce for four people to have several servings throughout the week with greater variety and a little more volume.

(See the application for pricing.)

Typical shares might include:

Early season – lettuce, kale, collard greens, cruciferous vegetables (i.e. broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage – also known as super vegetables for their particular health benefits), radishes, green onions, strawberries, raspberries

Mid-season – tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, sweet corn, Swiss chard, broccoli, beans, basil, peaches, blueberries

Late season – sweet corn, tomatoes, squash, potatoes, beets, carrots, onions, peppers, kale, pumpkins, apples, pears, watermelon

Please note:

We try to include at least one fruit each week, but due to harvest conditions this may not always be the case. Please recognize that these shares are primarily vegetables.

The vegetables in the shares are certified-organic. Not all of the fruit is organic – strawberries, blueberries, apples, peaches, etc. are grown conventionally on other farms.

At the beginning of the season, we may supplement the shares with nonproduce items such as eggs, bread or jam.

Applications are now available for the summer program. Spaces are filled on a first-come, first–served basis.

Winter CSA

Our winter program runs in six-week blocks beginning in late October. Blocks are continued into the winter as long as produce is available. Shares are delivered to your pickup site of choice on a weekly basis. Many items in the shares will vary as the season progresses.

There is one size share available in the winter CSA:

  • The winter share box provides enough produce for three to four people to have several servings throughout the week.

Typical shares might include:

Sweet potatoes, onions, carrots, parsnips, broccoli, radishes, lettuce, Swiss chard, eggs and whole-wheat bread

Applications for winter shares are available each September.
