Sign up is now open for our current members to join our CSA again for 2017. Please click here to join and enjoy our vegetables (and bread) next year. A full description is found on our CSA webpage and a link to join is also found there.
Farm Share (weekly green boxes) and Market Share (debit style, item by item) memberships both need to complete this sign up process in order to be part of our CSA in 2017. Bread Shares will also continue in 2017, May – November (same months as our Farm Share).
Yes, you can sign up for one, two, or all three types of shares!
We ask for the first payment due to be paid at time of sign up to hold your place, but if you need more time before making that payment, let us know. We just want current members to be able to sign up before we open to the waiting list…payment can arrive later.
Please sign up by the end of November. We will open sign up to our Waiting List on December 1st.
**Not yet on our waiting list but want to be?** See our CSA page for membership & share details, then email us (info@BroadforkFarm.net) with subject line “waiting list” and tell us what pick up location is your preference.
Look at the amazing shares of vegetables that we grow and pack for you!
If you haven’t yet checked out the Fire Flour Fork event happening here tomorrow, please do!

Vegetable Notes…also see recipes cataloged on our Recipe Page and Pinterest Page
Red Radishes – We are still lapping up our Radish Dip recipe around here: 2 bunches of radishes, 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened, 1/2 of a medium red onion, 1 tsp. dried dill, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 2 Tbsp. mayo. Put the radishes, onion, and garlic in the food processor and processes until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the cream cheese, and rest of ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use. OR – Slice them and mix with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and add on top of any salad, sandwich, eggs, or any dish. Radishes are vitamin rich!
Green Peppers – We are big fans of stuffed peppers. Go ahead and stuff these with your filling of choice. Slice lengthwise and fill/top them. (No need for bell pepper shape for stuffed peppers.) Try Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers, or Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers, or Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers (with Quinoa).
Scallions – Treat like Onions and add these to anything! Including the recipes listed above.
Green Tomatoes – The cold has set in hard now and thus only green tomatoes (not red) remain for this season. Embrace the crunch and tartness! Make Dill Pickled Green Tomatoes. OR Cook them: Make Roasted Green Tomato Salsa, or Oven Baked Fried Green Tomatoes. OR go the sweet route and make Green Tomato Pie (tried by us! We love it!)
Kale – Stay warm with easy Kale Quiche.
