Fall CSA Program
September 10th - November 2nd
After the hottest months of summer come to a close, the fall season is a welcome relief to members of the Columbus, Ohio area. As the temperatures begin to drop and the nights threaten frost, Seminary Hill Farm is busy planning and preparing for this anticipated change in the weather. Root vegetables, such as sweet potatoes and turnips, cultivate in our fields while more delicate varieties, such as herbs and salad mixes, remain protected in our system of high tunnels, low tunnels and hoop houses. Our practical knowledge of effective season extension techniques allow us to provide a full harvest each and every week for our members to enjoy.
How it Works
1. Choose your CSA share size
2. Sign up with a one time payment or subscribe to weekly payments
3. Select any additional share options and a convenient CSA pickup location
4. Arrive at your CSA pickup location and hand select your items based on your share size. As members of the Seminary Hill Farm CSA program, you will also have exclusive access to live cooking demonstrations, farm-to-table dinners, and other special events.
What to Expect
The Fall CSA program offers 8 weekly distributions. Not sure what we may offer during the Fall season? The gallery above shows some of the items our CSA members were able to choose from last Fall season. Each week, members can meet us at one of our CSA pickup locations and hand-select the items in their CSA share from our farm stand. Our farm stand will offer an average of twelve different seasonal varieties and each of these items will have value credits assigned ranging from three to six credits. You will be provided a number of credits based on the share size you choose. Pasture-raised eggs from our farm and freshly baked bread from Seminary Hill Farm Kitchen will also be available as part of the selection. You can expect fresh, high-quality varieties that are harvested directly from our sustainable market farm and offered directly through our CSA program. Our farm team will also be there during CSA distribution to answer any questions you may have.
