Winter CSA now waitlist only

 To ensure our Winter CSA program does not grow beyond our capacity, we are now only accepting people to a waitlist for the Winter CSA at this time.

COVID-19 Disruptions

In anticipation of fairly lengthy disruptions and farmers market closures/changes due to COVID-19, please note:
  • We are adjusting our processes and how we operate on and off farm with an eye on safety for our farm community and broader community and slowing the transmission of this novel coronavirus.
  • We have built a collaborative online market with a slowly expanding list of producers.  Please visit WashtenawOrganic.com for more details.  Everything is subject to change but currently there is multiple Saturday pickup spots (including our farm) and paid delivery for a pilot list of zip codes.
  • Our roadside stand is open periodically when we have things (you can email before making a trip).  You may pay in cash or credit card at shop.brines.net.
  • Our apologies but our Summer CSA is at capacity for new sign-ups.  You can fill out the form to be on a waitlist, but additional capacity is unlikely.  Most other area CSAs are full as well from what I hear.  Please consider our online market.
  • We have some trees and shrubs available for purchase.  They are only available for order at WashtenawOrganic.com.
If you would like to hear about any of the above as more details are finalized, don't hesitate to reach out to us.  Email is best at this time.

Wishing you good health!
