Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

We are not offering a CSA program in 2020 so that we can focus on helping more people grow their own food through backyard and community gardens. If there are ways we can support you in your gardening projects, let us know.

We may offer a limited number of work trade shares in 2020. If you are interested in this option, feel free to contact us at thefarmers@harvestofjoyfarm.com or 616-510-4487.

    I am very interested in a half share and was wondering how much food would I recieve each week, what kind of foods, and if I could get a list of the foods you could possible provide each season? I am a family of three? Is half a share enough for our family? Thanks for your time.

    • Hi Chrystal! Thanks for your interest. Take a look at our blog post Wonderful Seeds for a list of the crops we are planning to grow this year. Of course, as we mention in the post, this isn’t a guarantee that we’ll be able to offer all of these to our CSA customers, since crop failures do sometimes happen. As far as whether a half share would be enough for your family of three, it really depends on how much your family loves veggies! Our goal is to provide between $20-$25 in farmers market value of produce to our full share customers each week and $10-$12/wk to half share people, so if you’ve shopped at farmers markets and have a sense of prices there, that might give you an idea of how much produce will be in each share.

    Oh, another question, can we pick and choose what we want and don’t want, or if we want more of one thing than another? Thanks again. 🙂

    • At this point, due to logistical restrictions, it’s not going to be possible for people who are getting their shares at off-farm pickup locations to pick and choose the contents of their shares. We might be able to be a little more flexible with this for folks who are picking up at the farm, however. If you’re still interested, feel free to give us a call (269-672-2622) and we can give you further details over the phone.

    Regarding the flexibility for those picking up at the farm, I really wouldn’t want to arrive late in the day to find picked-over remains.

    • No fear of that, Roger! We’re small enough at this point that we only have a few people picking up at the farm on any given day and we’re happy to box up shares for those folks just like we do for people picking up at other locations if they’d prefer.

    Can you buy a half share this late in the season? Where is the Kalamazoo pick up location?
