If you live near the Rodgers Forge Tot Lot and are interested in joining a CSA plan (community-supported agriculture), you might consider Zahradka Farm. The pick-up time will be Fridays from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM at the Tot Lot.
From its website: “We are a small farm owned and operated by the Zahradka family located right in Baltimore County, 20 min outside of Baltimore City in fact! We pride ourselves on offering a TRULY local, naturally sustainable and quality product. We hand sow and transplant seed ourselves, we have a small staff mainly comprised of family that hand harvest the produce as well. We welcome one and all to come out to our farm and observe the growing process and meet our staff. Find out where your food is grown! …
With our summer CSA, you will receive veggies, ground fruit and berries from our farm that are hand harvested each day. We bring in tree fruit from other local farms to add some variety to your basket. Unlike most other CSAs, we pack your share with all of the premium produce that we harvest, not seconds or what doesn’t sell at our markets. We consider our CSA members true and valued members of our farm and you literally share in the bounty of the harvest! We have three options with additions upon request.
Option 1: Small Family Share/ Feeds 1 person+ (About 4 Items Per Week)= $400
*This Petit Family Share gives those of you with not as many mouths to feed or who just want to dabble in the veggie “world”, a chance to see what our program is all about.
Option 2: Medium Family Share/ Feeds 3 people+ (About 8 items Per Week)= $750
* This average family size share is just enough to supply your average family with enough produce for the week. This is a very popular share for those who eat veggies on a pretty regular basis.
Option 3: Large Family Share/ Feeds 4 people+ (About 12 Items Per Week)= $1050
* This share is the Crème De Le Crop for all those veggie lovers out there. The amount of produce in this share should feed a rather large family or anyone who appreciates fresh local produce! Many of our members choose this share to they can freeze summer veggies for the winter. I give lot’s of tips about “keeping” your produce!”
