What a spring!  Our CSA has reached full capacity and we are closing enrollment for now.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list, just ask (make sure we have your contact info!)  As spaces come available, we will get in touch on a first come, first served basis.  We are truly thankful for the support of our community and look forward to growing so much good food for our members this season!


We have lowered our prices for Full Diet and Produce Shares for 2017!  Click the tabs above for more information.


If you love to cook at home, and want to simplify sourcing fresh, local, sustainable ingredients, you're in the right place.

For $2.76 a plate or less, we offer a year-round CSA membership that provides all your whole foods. We produce our own vegetables, beef, pork, chicken, turkey, eggs, herbs, and small fruit, and offer breads, dairy, and tree fruit purchased directly from local, conscientious producers. As a member, you visit the farm each week and select exactly what you want and how much you need from what we have available.  

 

What our members are saying!

Being a part of the CSA has helped us to connect to our food and community in an incredible way. We love to cook and experiment with food so it is a joy to pick up new, fresh, an incredibly delicious ingredients every week. Visiting the farm is a weekly highlight for our family. It is such a relief to not be reliant on the grocery store for our food sourcing.

We have subscribed to a few CSAs, and Good Keeper Farm is by far our favorite.
We like that we have a variety of farm fresh veggies to choose from, as well as eggs, bread, dairy products, and delicious meats.
We like the quality of the produce, the cleanliness, and the absence of damage in spite of organic cultivation.
At first I thought the cost was steep, until I added up what we used to spend on our groceries, and realized that we were receiving superior produce for a similar expenditure.
I like supporting Julie and Matt in their enterprise. Their hearts and minds are in a good place. While the farm is aptly named, I think Sweet Spirit Farm would have been a good fit as well.
We are proud to be GKF supporters.

I like to cook. I like to eat good food. I like to support local farmers. I like being a locavore.

When I first heard about the full diet CSA, my initial response was, “fantastic.” My second response was, “That sounds like a lot of money.” After much thought, I decided to quit the two CSAs that I had been involved with, and join Good Keeper Farm. And I am so glad I did!

As we move into the final stretch leading up to retirement, I am trying to intentionally cut back on spending wherever possible. I have been recording all of our spending for over a year. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the amount of money I had been spending on food had actually gone down since joining Good Keeper! I attribute this to a couple of factors. First, I rarely go to the grocery store anymore. That eliminates impulse buying and buying more than we can really eat in a week. I am committed to using the food available to us seasonally, and I’m enjoying the many ways foods can be prepared, so we don’t get bored. Second is the quantity and variety of foods available at the farm. Even over the winter months, there was a nice selection of produce.

This summer has been amazing! Being able to take quantities of certain items has allowed me to do small-batch canning. My shelves are filling up, and we will have so many more good things to eat in the winter season.

Maybe the best part of all of this is getting to know Matt and Julie. They are doing a wonderful thing, and I am glad to be part of it.
