Buttermilk Falls CSA is a 100+ member CSA farm nestled among the forests and prairie lands of the beautiful St Croix River Valley 40 miles from the Twin Cities. Members enjoy festivals and farm visits, hikes along the river to explore the trail replete with a freshwater spring, waterfall and historic limestone kiln. Our gardens have generously offered up CSA shares for nearly 30 years without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides.

Community Supported Agriculture

CSA farmers and members share the season’s harvest and the economic responsibility for good land stewardship. The partnership creates direct connections between the people who eat the food, the land, and the people who grow the food. Together, we create an environmentally sound, genetically diverse, local food system.

A CSA share from Buttermilk Falls CSA is a tasteful assortment of seasonal vegetables, herbs and flowers from our own market gardens. A share box typically contains seven to ten kinds of produce. Half shares feed 1-2 eaters and come in half bushel boxes. Full shares are best for those who eat a lot of vegetables or are cooking for more than 2 vegetable eaters, and come in 3/4 bushel boxes. Deliveries begin in mid-June and continue for eighteen weeks.  We use organic and biodynamic farming principles and we prefer to use open pollinated (non hybrid) seeds. Absolutely no plastic mulch, chemical fertilizers, chemical weed killers or chemical pesticides.
