Greetings CSA Members,

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.
~ Aesop

We have arrived at the final distribution for the 2021 CSA season! Brian and I thank you so very much for your on-going support, encouragement, and feedback. We admire each of you and deeply value your commitment and trust in us. The emails overflowing with kindness and appreciation for what happens here at Denison Farm have been cherished gifts that make all the difficult days so much easier to bear.

We look forward to the Spring when we can offer you another 22-week season of vegetables. Come join us for another year – the partnership and relationships formed through the CSA community are precious to us!

With Gratitude for a wonderful (yet challenging!) CSA season – Justine and Brian

Please bring bags for your produce and leave the flattened box at your CSA site!
