Que Sehra CSA

2017 CSA

We keep our membership small in order to preserve both our sanity and the quality of our share boxes, which means we generally take new members slowly. If you’re interested in joining us, get in touch to be added to our CSA Waiting List – when a spot opens up, we’ll contact folks on the list in the order they were added.

Que Sehra CSA General Info:

Sign up now for weekly boxes of organic farm fresh produce from the Que Sehra Farm throughout the growing season!

2017 will be our fifth year running the Que Sehra CSA.  We expect this year to feature an even greater variety of produce, better varieties, more recipes, and more purely delicious 100% awesomeness. The new high tunnel greenhouse means we can start growing some crops sooner, continue growing later – and grow new things we could never have managed before with our northern zone’s short growing season!

Pick Up will be in either Minneapolis, Saint Paul,  (location TBD) or in Vadnais Heights (unless you are local or choose to pay for Delivery – see info below).

Growing Season is approximately 18 weeks, from early June through mid-October, depending on variables of climate utterly beyond our control. (Although we will be building a greenhouse or two this year ….)

Crops are still somewhat in flux – not only are we still finalizing specific varieties, etc, but what grows well (or at all) is dependent upon variables of climate that can be neither predicted nor controlled.

However, based on what we grew last year and what we are getting seeds for, reasonable general expectation would include things like garlic, carrots, radishes, bok choy, collards, peas, beets, kohlrabi, turnips, lettuce, arugula, onions, cucumbers, beans, rutabagas,  mint, dill, parsley, basil, cilantro, fennel, sage, ground cherries, huckleberries, flowers, tomatilloes, sweet corn, squash, zucchini, potatoes, eggplants, peppers, kale, parsnips, cabbage, broccoli, okra, celeriac, chard, spinach, tomatoes, melons, pumpkins, and perhaps some decorative gourds.

    • standard CSA disclaimer stuff:
      As a member of a CSA, you are making a financial commitment for the 2017 season to receive a weekly vegetable box. Recognize that due to the inherent risks of farming, there are no guarantees on the exact amount of produce you will receive due to weather extremes, insects, and/or other production factors. CSA members must be willing to share the risks of organic growing methods and reap the benefits along with the farmers. No refunds for CSA shares will be granted during the season. It is your responsibility to pick up your share at the pickup site during the designated time period, or to send someone in your absence.

  1. Yo Gabe. What kind of promo materials can I help with as part of your Angel Donor? Biz cards? Postcards? I can do the design for you and provide $100 worth of print product, courtesy of Shadeflower Designs. Will prob get a 5/9 bushel but need to talk to the hubs first and maybe go in with another couple (we go out of town a lot in the summers). So proud of you, lovey! Hopefully I can meet your gorgeous bride one of these days! Xoxo

    1. Awesome!! Hmmm … let me mull that over, and talk to Kristin about it! We are going to be doing some farmers market sales this year, so probably something to go with that – cards, signage, jar labels perhaps? We still don’t have a logo figured out though!

  2. Gabe, Any idea what time pick up would be available? I would only be able after 5PM, so if it would be earlier in day, it will make difference if delivery is necessary or not.

    1. I don’t know exactly what time it will be yet, but it will be after five, as many people will be at work during the day.

  3. Hi Gabe
    What exactly is included in the 5/9 Bushel Box, for $375? I have no idea how this works so pardon the ignorance. Is it a box a week? A month? What vegetables are included and in what quantities?

    Regards
    Frank

    1. Hi Frank!

      It’s a box per week through the ~18 week growing season, including whatever veggies and herbs are in season that week. We strive to provide a good variety and keep things interesting – you can look through the blog at the past CSA newsletters to get a better idear: http://www.quesehrafarm.com/category/
      Does that help? Happy spring (freezing though it may be), Gabe
