Summer CSA Program
May 4 - June 27
The early summer 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 first session of our Summer 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.
What to Expect
The first session of the Summer CSA subscription offers 8 weekly distributions. Each week, members can expect to receive fresh, seasonal produce that is unique to our region. Some varieties may include carrots, sweet potatoes, lettuce mix, turnips, radishes, spinach, yukon potatoes, scallions, garlic, fresh herbs, asparagus, onions and fresh herbs. 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 enjoy.
Meal-planning Guides, Cooking Tips and More
Each CSA share will include helpful recipes, storage tips and preparation ideas. Our chefs have worked closely with the farm team to develop a newsletter filled with information that is both practical and unique for our members. Whether you are a trained chef or a beginner in the kitchen, the fresh, whole ingredients harvested from the farm will help you discover delicious recipes week after week.
How it Works
When you sign up, you will have the option to choose which share size and location will work best for you. When you arrive, we will have a farm stand set up that offers an average of twelve different seasonal varieties harvested directly from our farm. You will be provided with a number of credits based on the share size you selected. Each of the items offered at our farm stand will be assigned a credit value. Every week, you can select the quality produce for your CSA share. As a member of our CSA program, you will also have exclusive access to farm-to-table dinners, live cooking demonstrations and special events.
