Summer CSA Program
July 6 - August 29
For members of the metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio, the late 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 late summer season.
What to Expect
The second session of the Summer CSA Program offers eight weekly distributions. Each week, members will receive fresh, local food with a difference in quality you can taste. Some varieties may include pink bumblebee tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, tomatillos, eggplants, cucumbers, summer squash, watermelon, onions, salad mix, sweet corn, and fresh herbs such as basil, cilantro and dill. Each of these ingredients are grown and harvested from our certified organic farm.
Meal-planning Guides, Cooking Tips and More
Each CSA member will also receive a newsletter that contains 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. We realize that you have busy lives but still want to enjoy health meals. Our newsletter is designed with this in mind so you can discover new seasonal recipes using fresh, local ingredients.
How it Works
When you sign up, you will have the option to choose which share size and location will work best for you. During the distribution times, we will have a farm stand set up that offers an average of twelve different fresh, seasonal varieties. You will be provided 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. Each week, you can select the items for your CSA share. It is a practical way for you to determine what fresh, local food would be best for you and your household. As a member of our CSA program, you will also have exclusive access to farm-to-table dinners, live cooking demonstrations and special events.
