2014 CSA Season Information:
Season Length: 18 weeks of farm fresh produce
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial relationship between a local farm and the community of people who receive the food the farm produces. Members purchase a share of the harvest and in return receive a weekly supply of fresh seasonal vegetables picked at their peak of ripeness and flavor. The members agree to share in the inherent benefits and risks of the agricultural season. The arrangement guarantees the farmer financial support and enables many smaller sustainable farms to stay in business.

LFF uses sustainable farming practices. This means we have three main goals: environmental stewardship, farm profitability, and prosperous farming communities. We have an integrated, resource conserving farming system, based on respect for the people and animals involved which reduces environmental degradation, and promotes agricultural productivity and economic viability. One example of a sustainable practice LFF employs is our use of compost rather than synthetic fertilizer. Another is our use of proper crop rotation. Correct irrigation, collaborating efforts with other farmers and conservation of resources also contributes to LFF’s sustainable nature.
Local Motion CSA grows over 35 different vegetables, a dozen types of herbs, and a variety of flowers. We harvest from April through November. Each week you will receive a diverse mix of those crops that are in season. Here are some typical highlights: April – June Lots of lettuce, amazing baby greens, plentiful peas, and ruby red radishes. The season begins with fresh salads and sautéed greens on your dinner plate. July – September July: Spinach and greens are replaced by a bounty of beets, baby carrots, and cool cucumbers. By mid-month, you should begin to see a variety of summer squash, green beans, and herbs galore. By late July we will have garlic and if we are lucky, tomatoes. August: Peppers, eggplant and onions begin to arrive. Get the butter out because the best sweet corn in Colorado will be hitting the grill this month. Edamame will make for a tasty snack. Prepare yourself for a bountiful month of fresh veggies. September: Cool nights allow for the return of greens while the warm days keep the August crops happy. Late season sweet corn will still be growing strong. Get ready to put some up for the winter. Fall harvest of root crops will continue through the end of this month. October-NovemberThe season ends with cold loving kale, rainbow chard and lettuces. Several eye-catching varieties of new crop dry beans are in store to help get you through winter.
