CSA

My name is Paul Grady and I run Potter Hill Farm in Grafton atop a quiet mile-long hill with incredible views of Worcester and Mt Wachusett. The property is part of 500 contiguous preserved acres and surrounded by hiking trails. We specialize in great-tasting heirloom vegetable varieties, and all of our produce is certified organic. Visitors are encouraged not only by the friendly farmers, but by our chatty flocks of pastured poultry and happy pigs. Community is the cornerstone of our farm – the farm would not exist without your support.

If you are unfamiliar with a CSA, it’s a relatively new and wonderful concept from the farmer’s perspective – the upfront expenses of seeds, supplies, and labor early in the season are steep, while veggies are a labor of love and patience. Without the revenue from pre-selling CSA shares, we don’t start earning anything back until the year is half over.

And you, the consumer, benefit equally in this partnership. Just to name a few of the many benefits (click to expand):

Eating seasonally

Forget all the diets, rules, buzz words, and supplements. The easiest way to eat and be healthy is to eat what’s in season. Tomatoes picked green, gassed to ripen, and shipped around the world are completely different in taste and nutrition than a tomato left to ripen on the vine, picked one day and enjoyed the next.

Avoid the grocery store trap

Corporations spend millions studying our shopping habits in order to sell us food we don’t need. And millions more trying to trick our tastes so that we become addicted to it. Unsurprisingly, it’s not healthy food they’re trying to sell us!

Get out of your comfort zone

A local food blogger and friend will giving us simple recipes and ideas on how to use your veggies. No more food ruts! There might be veggies you’ve never even heard of before, but chances are high you’ll love them once you know how to use them.

Bonus Veggies

Your reward for committing to a season is an extra 8-15% value depending on which option you choose.

There are two options to invest in your health and the farm: CSA (sold out) or CSA Card Flyer. Click the flyer to learn more about each option. UPDATE: We sold out of CSA shares for the 2018 season (in 5 days!), and the wait list is full at this time. The CSA Card option is still available.
