Mountain View Farm grows over 300 varieties of about 50 crops, all of which are sold and distributed through the CSA model — no farmers markets or wholesalers involved. “CSAs are all about community and the relationship with the farmer,” explains greenhouse manager Ellen Schramm. “We have people and families who have been coming for years. People who split shares often become good friends and share recipes and ideas. And the CSA model also supports farmers, because the money goes straight to the people growing your food.” Summer shares begin in the first week of June.
