CSA DAY!

Hello Friends!

In case you haven’t heard the awesome news…

Oasis Backyard Farms will be continuing the great work of Caramore Farm! We’ll be offering wonderfully fresh, natural and organically grown fruits, vegetables and flowers to our members in 2018!

Ever since the 2017 growing season ended, I’ve done some damage to my bank account…  While strolling through Wegman’s last night, I looked down to a cart filled with locally grown, organic produce and wine when I heard my bank account yell … “Enough already!!!”

Luckily, I told my small friend to take a hike because #CSA day is among us!!! I am committed to shopping as organically as possible but the upcoming growing season cannot come fast enough.

This Friday, February 23rd, will be dedicated to celebrating community-supported agriculture that supports your local farmer!!!

Our Market CSA model means more flexibility and more of the veggies you love the most!

  • Harvest Market members get first pick of the farms’ freshly harvested veggies all at a discounted rate!
  • As a Member, you have the flexibility to choose what you want and only when you want it. There’s no pre-set weekly amount…If you only need a little, take just a little… Need a lot? Take lots! Summiting K2 next month?… Skip the whole month! No more take it or loose it!
  • Our “Harvest Card” keeps track of your account balance automatically AND your balance never expires!
  • We’ll be open for convenient pickup/shopping exclusively for our Harvest Market members two days each week.
  • We’ll also be open to the public after our valued CSA members have purchased their goodies. Harvest Market members are welcome to browse and pickup anytime – even when we’re open to the public (your members discount is always locked in!)
  • OBF will also be hosting small, members’ only events at the farm. We want to engage CSA families to take part in like-minded healthy awareness! Announcements to come…

Here’s how to get started…

  2. Download and fill out an application & choose your discount level.
  3. Mail your application and check or email it to us and pay online

Happy Valentine’s Day!

February is filled with love, especially for our farmers who are building relationships with members of Community Supported Agriculture.

We often hear the question: What is the real meaning behind National CSA Day?

National CSA Day is held on February 23rd and is dedicated to the celebration of Community Supported Agriculture.

I want to share with you guys just how important participating in a CSA is, and how your contribution to our farm will benefit the both of us!

In simple terms, a CSA participant purchases the access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by local farmers (like OBF) all season long at a discount!

As you may know, a farmers growing season begins around early March through late November depending on our ever changing environment …

You might ask: What am I signing up for exactly and why now?

When the New Year begins, farmers do not have a steady flow of income or revenue. By participating early your local farmer can plan for the season. We purchase new seeds, prepare the land, plant our seedlings and compensate all our farm loving employees that help make this happen.

This all lends itself to a wonderful harvesting season for all CSA Members!

Why join a CSA?

  • Eat Healthy Quality Food – Locally grown, organic, farm-to-table produce has higher antioxidant and nutritional content then other conventionally raised produce that has often been shipped from miles away.
  • Community – Your support helps small local farms continue to thrive as operating businesses while producing, local, Non-GMO foods that are healthy for you. Minimizing Big Ag reliance!
  • Interactive – Get your hands dirty! CSA’s offer the opportunity for… pick your own veggiesGarden arrow

We encourage you to get the gardening/farming bug, especially with your children!
