2017-2018 ONSEN FARM WINTER CSA SHARE - starting in November and ending in June
2018 ONSEN FARM SUMMER CSA SHARE - starting in July and ending in October
ONSEN FARM is now offering an expanded Year Round Farm Share Program. Along with the produce that we grow in our 10,000 sq. ft. geothermal heated greenhouses, we will also be working with 5 other neighboring farms to be able to offer a larger variety of produce for your family. What could be better than knowing where your food comes from, who grows it and how it is grown? You will have the opportunity to visit "your farm" to see how your food is grown, meet the farmers, attend workshops and events with a discount, feed the chickens and hang out in a warm green place when it's really cold outside. Give us a call to schedule a visit on a Friday or a Saturday.
From November until June our Winter CSA will deliver to your home a box filled with local produce twice a month, with two sizes to fit your families needs. We take a few weeks off during the dark month of January to give our greenhouses a rest before jumping back into production in February. CSA shares are harvested fresh on Wednesday and Thursday morning and delivered to you every other week on Thursday afternoon. The quantity is a nice amount of produce designed for a family of 2 or a family of 4+ for the full share. Since every family eats differently it is hard to say how many people the typical share will feed. The value is estimated at $50 for each box.
Our Winter CSA is comprised of mainly greens with other vegetables and fruit (see list below). A CSA is not for everybody. If you don't like to eat a lot of greens during the winter months then this CSA is not for you. We are the only farm that we know of that provides a Winter CSA in Idaho, growing greens and other veggies all winter long during the coldest months thanks to our 125 degree geothermal water.
Winter Crops Include: Handcrafted Salad Mix . Spinach . Arugula . Beet Greens . Kale . Chard . Asian Stir Fry Mix . Watercress . French Sorrel . Green Onions . Dill . Parsley. Thyme . Rosemary.

Our SUMMER CSA begins in July and goes through October. As with our Winter Farm Share, we will be teaming up with five other local farmers to bring you seasonal vegetables and fruit, plus cut flowers from our garden. We offer one size box during the summer months. The cost is $400 for 8 deliveries. We will again be offering Free Home Delivery to Buhl, Twin Falls and the Wood River Valley. In each box you will receive 10 or 11 different items including a variety of greens along with carrots, beets, summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes (beginning in July), basil, herbs, sweet corn, figs, grapes, melon, apple, pear, and stone fruit such as apricots, cherries and peaches (providing we have a good year in our orchard.) We have organic pastured eggs from Agrarian Harvest as an add-on to your membership for $5 a dozen.
Delivery to the Wood River Valley, Buhl and Twin Falls: We are offering Home Delivery to those who live in close proximity to their city at no charge. We will also have a pick up site that is centrally located for folks who live out and beyond our delivery route. Our Hagerman Valley neighbors are welcome to pick up their box at the farm on Thursday afternoon after 3pm or on Friday between 9am and 4pm.
