Who we are?
We are an incredible posse of farmers and volunteers who build, plant, harvest, fix & maintain equipment, paint, wire, code, design, sew, and construct all around Three Sisters.
We seek to grow high-quality, healthy, and beautiful produce for a diverse community. We care for the farm’s soil, air, and water and all the life depending on it – birds, bees, worms, and even soil microbes. We value our CSA members – we welcome your ideas and appreciate your input. We work to make local food accessible to more kinds of people, from chefs to kids to food pantries. And we seek to create a meaningful & satisfying workplace to train new farmers.
What is CSA? What is a farm share?

Community Supported Agriculture is a farming model based on a direct relationship between eater and farmer. You buy a farm share – a season’s worth of veggies – from us, investing in the farm in the winter/spring, and we grow it for you, distributing in summer and fall.
CSA members are the core of our farm.
How does it work at Three Sisters?
We offer a weekly pickup in the red barn at the farm (Tuesdays & Thursdays, 4-7pm), where a friendly staff person guides you through the process of choosing your veggies. We aim to give out a wide variety of produce each week, changing through the season.
You’ll find lots of standards like carrots, peas and beans, tomatoes, potatoes, leeks & onions, broccoli, summer squash & zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, cooking greens and salad greens, radishes, melons, winter squash, cabbage, beets & turnips, and herbs and flowers. (*We’ll occasionally experiment with an interesting variety once in a while, but our goal is to get you the delicious basics so you can cook real meals at home without a lot of panic!)
A share costs $525 for a season, which runs early June to mid-October – about $25/week.
Some veggies will need refrigeration and some won’t; some need to be eaten right away while others will keep longer in your fridge or cupboard. This is a mid-size share – we’re aiming to give you a great variety but not overwhelm you with too much food.
We offer a fall share in November & December as well, separate from the main season.
