The Importance of Local Farming
Produce from your local grocery store chain (whether it is organic or conventional) travels on average 1500 miles from the farm to get to you.
The food we find all too common around us is genetically modified for value rather than taste, and ripens on a truck rather than on its vine; thus losing nutritional value and feeding into a system that is unsustainable.

The Agrihood Model
Agri-hood developments are popping up all over the US as part of the same sustainable farm-to-table movement in restaurants and at farmers markets all across the country.
People want to connect to nature and to a more traditional lifestyle that goes back hundreds of years, back to a simpler time when people knew their neighbors, and knew their local farmers and where their food came from.
The CSA Share
Shares of the farm's various harvests are available for purchase in the form of an annual subscription.
A full year's CSA share is included with the purchase of a lot.
Shares are distributed every week from the Education Center when the produce is in its season for harvesting.
Types of Shares
At Creekside Farm, we grow over 100 different varieties of vegetables, farm animals, and many varieties of flowers.
We offer 3 different types of shares available for membership:
