Sign up now to join Sleepy Root Farm
Sleepy Root Farm is a five acre produce farm located outside Amery, WI. Growing and enjoying food is our way of connecting to the greater ecosystem that surrounds and supports us. We use organic practices and recognize that it is the health of the soil, the water, the air and the myriad creatures both big and small that make this bountiful life possible, and so treat it as such.
We offer 3 different share sizes for different needs and deliver to multiple Twin Cities and East of Twin Cities locations on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Below are images from 2013’s Medium and Full Shares.2013’s Medium Shares:
Belonging to a CSA
Simply put, being a CSA member is buying a share of the farm for a season. In return you receive a box full of beautiful vegetables, herbs and occasional fruit every week for 18 weeks through the months of June to October, delivered to your neighborhood.
Community Supported Agriculture (or CSA) is one of the best ways to add some excitement to your cooking, bringing healthy seasonal produce and new recipes to your kitchen. Every week along with your share we offer a newsletter full of recipes, storage tips, and useful cooking techniques that Heather learned from her previous career as a chef.
We strongly believe that the food we eat is one of the most sacred and enjoyable parts of our lives. Because so, you can be sure your food is grown in the healthiest ways following organic practices and never using chemicals that harm the beneficial organisms of the soil or linger on so much of the produce in our grocery aisles.
As a member you also help us take on the risks of the season. Part of the beauty of life is the unpredictabilities–sometimes it means surplus produce, sometimes it means unanticipated hail storms or droughts that reduce the amount of vegetables in your weekly box. Your commitment for the season gives us the stability to ride out the highs and the lows together. We promise to do everything within our abilities to ensure a fruitful season, but some things are simply out of our control. But when the going is good (and boy is it usually good!) you will be the first to share in the bounty!
Your membership helps determine the direction of our farm and allows us to invest in the long term health of our family and yours. By becoming a member you are joining a mindful community that supports local agriculture and meaningful exchanges, a community that believes eating should not just fill our bellies, but our soul as well.
