  Farm Operations Summary  
  2015 Planting Plan
  1 Yr of Hoop House Farming
Hello Members and Friends,
    this info sheet is a summary of our Osma Acres Farm CSA operations for the current year Harvest season.

  I am sure you will enjoy our farm fresh produce and berries this year.
  You will find you pay less (5%-10%) for our farm fresh produce as compared to the local grocery markets.

  Our operation is fairly easy to understand.
    1.  Members pay a deposit (Normally In March) to Osma Acres Farm for produce items they will purchase during the harvest season.
    2.  Osma Acres Farm CSA will utilize the member deposits to plant, cultivate and harvest the produce (May-November). A planned planting list is sent out to Members in March; it will list the various vegetables we will plant in mid  April. We use no herbicides, insecticides or genetically engineered seeds or plants.
    3.  Osma Acres Farm CSA sends a weekly email to members as each produce item becomes available; the weekly produce list includes the prices and order units  for each available item. Produce may also be ordered using our Online Produce Order Form; which is  on this web site at the Fresh  Produce Order Form link on the Home Page.
    4.  Members indicate the produce items and quantities they want and return the produce order list to Osma Acres Farm CSA via eMail or subit it from this website.
    5.  Members may pick up their order at the Osma Acres Farm or at a pickup location published by Osma Acres Farm CSA; this year we will have one pickup point each week; Shopko Parking lot Sat 11AM-12 Noon. We park at the end of the Shopko lot near the Shell gas station.
    6.  Members may participate in activities at the farm; Osma Acres Farm CSA publishes periodic newsletters for members which lists the upcoming activities at the farm. Activities involve planting, weeding and such; members receive $5 in produce purchase credits for each hour of farm labor.
    7.  Members may purchase more or less than their Membership deposit during a given year. Any unused deposit will carry forward to the following harvest year. Members pay weekly for purchases after they have utilized the initial Membership deposit. We accept Bridge/food stamp cards, credit cards, Senior Fresh Produce coupons and  WIC Fresh Produce coupons.

  I look forward to seeing each of you this year at our farm Co-op, the Osma Acres Farm CSA.
