Summer CSA Program
July 10th - August 31st
For members of the metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio, the summer season is filled with hot, sticky days and warm summer nights. Seminary Hill Farm embraces this change in weather because it provides an opportunity for cultivating different varieties that thrive in the heat. From tart tomatillos to sweet sugar baby watermelons, the Summer CSA program delivers fresh flavor with a quality that goes unmatched. Our certified organic farm uses hand managed spaces to cultivate and harvest the food grown in our fields. When you join the Summer CSA program, you can expect to receive quality ingredients to enjoy and prepare every week of the summer season.
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 Summer CSA Program offers eight weekly distributions of fresh, high-quality ingredients harvested directly from our certified organic farm. 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 season. 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. We will also have freshly-baked bread from Seminary Hill Farm Kitchen and pasture-raised eggs from our farm available as part of the selection. Our goal is to create a true connection from farm-to-table and the team is dedicated to offering a high-quality product that the community can gather and celebrate around.
