Fall CSA sign up now open!

2015 Fall CSA Membership
Vegetable Share: Wednesday September 30- Wednesday November 11th
A subscription to Bluebird Farm allows you to share our harvest! Members buy a "share" of our harvest and receive an assortment of seasonal, fresh, vegetables and herbs weekly for 7 weeks.
Chicken Share:  Enjoy the taste of chicken raised on pasture. Stock up for winter! Pickup your chickens once a month in October, November, and December.

We grow a mix of vegetables in the fall for the fall vegetable share.  All kinds of greens like kale, collards, arugula, and lettuce.  Enjoy storage crops like sweet potatoes, garlic, carrots, winter squash, cabbage, and salad turnips.  We'll have broccoli, scallions, and radishes.
Cost- The fall veggie share is $160. ($22.85 per week, average)
The weekly vegetable average is based on an average weekly amount through the entire 7 week season. 9/30-11/11. The amount of vegetables in your box each week may be worth less or more than the weekly average depending on crops and weather.
Veggies diversity and box value- Just before fall frost (October 14-21st), we'll give you winter crops that store well like sweet potatoes and winter squash so we can get them out of the freezing weather! Your box will be bigger and worth more in the first 6 weeks...we will have less diversity of fresh green veggies the last 2 weeks of the CSA due to freezing temperatures.
Egg Share
Egg shares are only available if you have signed up for a vegetable share.

Chicken Share
You can sign up for a chicken share only (vegetable share not required.)
Get the special CSA chicken price of $5.75 lb for whole chickens when you purchase a chicken share!

Bluebird Farm pastured broiler chickens are fed certified organic non-GMO grains.  We raise a hearty outdoor chicken breed outside on fresh pastures in clean air.  Meat from healthy, happy birds takes on a whole different flavor and texture-it tastes like chicken for a change!  
Our chickens are frozen and keep without freezer burn for at least 6 months in our heavy duty vacuum packaging.  

Share combinations and sign-up options:
-You may sign up for a vegetable share and add on egg and/or chicken.
-You may also sign up for the chicken only share.  

-We only offer the egg share as an add on for the vegetable share since our hens lay less eggs in the fall.

Enjoy the fall farm bounty! >>Learn more and sign up here<<
