Caretaker Farm, established in 1969, is a community supported farm. We provide a nearly year-round provision of vegetables and fruits for 270 families. We also train four apprentices a year within the framework and principles of organic agriculture.
The farm, while primarily directed to vegetable production, has mixed livestock (pigs, bees and chickens), three hothouses, one greenhouse, an orchard and a bakery. The farm, which covers 35 acres, is bisected by a small river and is part of an extended rural valley.
Vegetables, fruit, baked goods and meat.

Our two-adult, one-bag share costs $675; and our one-adult, one-bag share costs $565. All shares are picked up at the farm. We distribute once a week from June through October and then every other week until the produce runs out (around February). The farm also provides financial assistance to those in need so that all can access the CSA.
