CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)

Each week, you’ll receive a share of whatever is ripe and ready to eat, grown by Sustainable Agriculture students. Our focus is high quality produce and a whole meal idea in every box.

Go Local!

Everything is grown for you, our local community, using sustainable practices. Your CSA membership gets you fresh, tasty fruits and veggies while students receive the opportunity to learn how to run a sustainable farm and produce for a local direct market.

Each week’s produce will change, but a share should feed 2-3 people. Here are a few typical items that you might see in the box each season.

Summer - Zucchini, basil, berries, cucumbers, apples, fresh herbs

Fall - Tomatoes, potatoes, basil, peppers, apples, and winter squash

CSA Details:

We select a wide variety of unique produce to tantalize your taste buds, as well as some of the tried and true staples. We also strive to include a variety of unique items such as Shone Farm olive oil, dried beans, and Sonora wheat.

Our 2016 CSA is coming to an end, and we do not yet have details confirmed for the 2017 CSA. However, here are some details about the CSA that we have done in the past and will likely continue in 2017.

Length: Our CSA usually runs from June through December. We currently only deliver boxes weekly. We offer various options to join including a monthly, summer, fall, or a discounted full season option to join.

Locations: Pick up locations will be at the Santa Rosa farm stand, Petaluma campus, Shone Farm, and Keysight Technologies (for Keysight employees only.)

Size Options:

Regular CSA box: good for dedicated vegetable eaters or a family. Includes 8 - 10 items every week.

Scholar bag: basically a smaller version of the CSA box. It costs less and includes about 3 – 4 items tailored to make a meal, with a recipe included. The scholar bag membership is a 4 week subscription. If you were thinking about not joining the CSA because the regular box is too much produce, this might be a good option to try.

Farm Stand

We run a seasonal farm stand.

Where: Across from the SRJC, on the corner of Mendocino Avenue & Carr Avenue in Santa Rosa

Hours: 12 - 5 PM on Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON: The last day of the farm stand will be 11/18. We will re-open sometime late spring of 2017. Thank you for your support!

Grass Fed Beef

We periodically sell our 100% grass fed beef to the public. E-mail us shonefarm@santarosa.edu to be contacted for the next sale. There are also good options for local grass fed beef at the many farmer's markets throughout the county.

For those of you not familiar with locally raised grass fed beef, the cost might raise eyebrows. Here’s what Shone Farm beef is all about.

• When you purchase our beef, you know you are getting 100% pasture raised, grass fed beef raised right here at Shone Farm, by our students.

• Buying from local farmer supports the local economy, your community, and in this case helps educate future farmers!

• Our cattle have 100 acres of pastureland to roam and graze.

• Similar to the flavor of locally grown produce, like fresh juicy tomatoes or strawberries, local grass fed beef packs a lot of flavor.

• Grass-fed beef is also a leaner choice, with more omega-3 fatty acids than grain fed beef.
