Our membership has reached a comfortable level for us to be able to serve and so, we are going to begin accepting new members in the order that we receive applications to replace members who move away or on to other things. The number of new members coming in has pretty closely matched the members who have moved on resulting in a fairly stable membership for us over the past couple of years. Therefore, it is possible that there may not be much of a waiting list list for much of the year, except during high interest times of year like spring into summer. We don’t spend any money on advertising so, almost all of our new members come from existing member referrals. I think that’s the best confirmation we could have for what we are doing!
So, if you want to join us, please review our CSA Guidlines HERE and then submit your application as soon as possible. We will check your address for delivery and get back to you within a few days to let you know if your address is deliverable and if/when we are able to get you started.
We appreciate your interest in our CSA Program! Thanks for checking us out!
This is the time of year when interest in CSA is at its peak.Â We fIrst began offering CSA to the Greater Cincinnati area when there were only a very small handful of farms marketing their products that way.
In that time, our farm has provided the most innovative, dependable and consistent CSA Program in our entire region in the quality and variety of offerings for our members.Â We are now the very first and only CSA in our entire region to offer custom online ordering and home or office delivery right to your doorstep for no additional cost.Â We always have been and always will remain at the forefront of CSA farming providing the very best CSA experience for our members who support us in our efforts to regain and support the sustainable small family farming operations that our society has so short sightedly forsaken to the point of extinction.
Supporting your local small family farmer through membership in a CSA Program requires an attitude, understanding and level of participation completely contradictory to that of shopping at Kroger or Walmart or even a farmer’s market for your food.Â We have unfortunately come to see, over the years, that most people in our society prefer convenience over a healthy mother Earth.
We are not for everyone.Â We are for those who truly care and want to make a difference.Â If you are ready to make the effort to be different and place the health of our small family farms and the health our planet ahead of your own convenience, then we would very much love to have you join us in our efforts to truly support local agriculture!
Our new website is pretty much complete! Just like an old house, there will always be renovations and updates going on but the site is structurally sound and we have already signed up several new CSA Members for the 2013 Winter period.
Not sure if you want to give it a try? How’s this… Sign up for our 2013 Winter CSA Program and give it a try for 30 days. If you do not want to continue, just let us know within the first 30 days and we will refund your Membership Fee! Refund will be paid to the PayPal account from which we originally received your payment. You do not even need to give us a reason although we sincerely would appreciate your feedback.
So there you go… What do you have to lose? We are making it so easy to eat local and support your local farmers all year round that you do not even have to leave your house to do it! How much better can it get? No, we’re not going to cook it for you. =)
Our new CSA Program Guidelines for 2013 are now up on the site! Â Go to the Community Supported Agriculture at Martin Hill Farms link to read the details about how our newly revised and expanded program works.
CSA Members can now order whatever they want from our available Offerings each week and we deliver their Share Order either directly to their home or to the pick up location of their choice! Â Our new online ordering process allows us to customize our Members’ CSA Shares so they only pay for and receive the items they want each week.
We now provide a much greater weekly selection of products for our CSA Members by offering a choice from ALL of the items we produce on our farm each week as well as products from other local farms and producers.Â We now also offer items that we produce on the farm in order to preserve the harvest – items like Heirloom Tomato Sauces, Salsas, Canned Green Beans, Cauliflower and Other Veggies, Fermented Veggies, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Home-Made Raisins, Dried Fruits, Jerkies, Jams and who knows what else!
Please check it out! Â Everything we do goes toward keeping our local farmlands farmland producing food and not turning them into concrete and golf courses!
We are in the process of creating a new website that will allow us to offer CSA in a new and exciting way! Â Soon, CSA Members will be able to order the items they want each week and have them delivered right to their door! Â How cool is that!
