Community Supported Agriculture Program Now at Kowalski's
Posted: Tuesday, April 1, 2014
Kowalski's Markets and Untiedt's Vegetable Farm have been working together for over 10 years, offering customers fresh local produce during the Minnesota growing season. This year the partnership is going one step further. The two family-based businesses are partnering once again to offer customers the opportunity to be part of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, with pickup options at each of our nine Kowalski's Markets.
Since starting the CSA in 2010, Untiedt's has seen phenomenal growth as the demand for fresh and local produce continues to grow. Partnering with Kowalski's to offer convenient pickup locations throughout the metro will make this CSA accessible for more consumers.
The CSA will run for 17 weeks, beginning mid-June. Each week members will get a minimum of seven different types of vegetables as well as one type of fruit. There is an option for a half share, which feeds a family of 2-3, or a full share, which feeds a family of 4-6. Buying into a CSA allows members to have a connection with a farm and understand where and how their produce is grown. Untiedt's grows over 50 different crops that are included in the CSA throughout the season.
On a daily basis, Untiedt's Vegetable Farm, Inc., of Waverly, MN perseveres in achieving its goal of family, employee and agricultural harmony. Minnesota grown, hand-harvested, locally and sustainably produced, and stewardly decision-making all describe just what Untiedt's Vegetable Farm attempts to achieve in relationship to this good earth.
