Spring CSA Program
May 8th - June 29th
The spring season in Columbus, Ohio introduces slowly warming temperatures and a welcomed break from the dreary days of winter. The ground begins to thaw and our menus begin to shift away from storage root vegetables and towards heartier varieties, such as beets and spinach that can thrive in the warming temperatures. The Spring CSA subscription is able to begin as early as May because we utilize a combination of season extension techniques and understand how to cultivate a fresh, quality product despite the hard to predict temperatures.
How it Works

What to Expect
The Spring CSA subscription offers 8 weekly distributions. 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. If you are not sure what to expect, look at the gallery above to see what our CSA members were able to choose from last Spring. 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. There will also be pasture-raised eggs from our farm and freshly baked bread from at Seminary Hill Farm Kitchen available as part of the selection. Seminary Hill Farm is committed to building both the quality of the soil and the health of the plant through biological farming. When you join the Seminary Hill Farm CSA program, you can trust that the local food provided each week was cultivated with delicate consideration and properly prepared for you to take home and enjoy.
