MEMBERSHIP OPENING SOON FOR THE 2021-2022 GROWING SEASON!!
Come join Blumenberry Farms, the labor of love created by organic farmer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Mitch Blumenthal. The former founder and owner of Global Organic Specialty Source and Noah’s Garden has returned, quite literally, to his roots. He and his team cultivate some of the most desired produce in Sarasota County and beyond. In the past, his product was sold to top restaurants and customers the same day it was harvested.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA is the most intimate way that you, a person who loves fresh, local food, can interact with a local farm. Everyone knows that farming is hard work. It demands long hours of physical labor and there is never a guarantee that what you sow is what you will reap. Heavy rains, dry spells, and pests can all alter the course of a farm’s plan. Still, a farmer returns day after day and season after season because the satisfaction of a good harvest makes it all worthwhile. By joining a CSA, you show your support of your local farmer as the season unfolds. You experience the challenges of growing as well as the celebration of a healthy harvest.
How does it work? You agree to buy a subscription to the farm and we agree to fill a box with organic produce. The box will vary from week to week, as different crops reach their time of harvest. Some weeks may be more abundant than others. You may find that there’s a bumper crop of your favorite vegetable one week, or another we may experience a frost which might kill some crops, for example. You may find a bouquet of sunflowers one week and kumquats the next. Regardless of the content, you are guaranteed a wholesome selection of items from which you can feed your family.
