Whole Hog ~n~ Dance

We are excited to announce we are planning a fall fest Millsap style and we hope you can join us.  Saturday October 5th @ 4:45 we will be welcoming all of you to the farm for a Contra Dance/Whole Hog Roast/Potluck good time.  We will be pit roasting one of our hogs, so bring along something to go with it, potluck style.  We will eat at 5:15, and then we will start contra dancing at about 6:45.  If you have never been to contra dance they are super family friendly good times with large circle, line or square dances. They are similar to square dancing, with a caller, but more of a bluegrass fiddle band feel. Our caller is Jim Thaxter who is coming down from Columbia, Kim Lansford on guitar, David Scrivner will be on fiddle, Nathan McAllister on fiddle/banjo. We hope to dance (or watch) for a few hours.  wpid-2015-05-16-15.29.38.png.png

Farm News and Fall Happenings

Our Self Serve Farm Stand is up and running, stop by anytime the sun is up and shop with your local farmers!  We have local honey from P&D Honey farm in Fair Grove, Just Coffee from a farmers coop in Mexico that realized that a large portion of the coffee profit goes to the roasters of the coffee.  So a group of farmers joined together to roast coffee in small batches, allowing the farmers to support their families. Terrell Creek Goat cheese from Fordland, really the best cheese you can get!  Eggs from Green Thicket Farm just north of us and soon Fair Share Farm Ferements from Kearney MO with kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles and relish.  Currently we have Dove Moutain Reliance grapes from Moutain Grove as well!  Of course we have our produce and flowers stocked and ready for you anytime, bring cash or check!! Our Fall and Winter CSA shares will be on sale soon!img_1255

Summer CSA shares are now available

Click here to JOIN NOW!

How does it work?

Millsap Farm’s CSA is a partnership between the member and the farmer that helps sustain local access to fresh produce. CSA members support the farmer, giving them an opportunity to responsibly care for the earth and provide healthy, locally grown produce. The CSA member picks up their share of the fresh, contamination free vegetables and herbs on the day of harvest. Read More…

Where and when do I get my produce?

What Do I Get?

The pictures above are from actual shares. Each harvest is different depending on weather patterns and plant performance. We make every effort to provide you with a plentiful harvest. This page will show you some posts listing the shares received in previous harvests.

We use a CSA tool called Harvie, which allows our members to record their vegetable preferences, and then customizes your box of vegetables based on those preferences.  Additionally, you will have an opportunity to swap items into and out of your share when you receive your weekly e-mail on Friday, allowing you to know what you’re getting well in advance of the distribution on Tuesday. Our CSA members greatly appreciated this cutting edge approach to CSA last season. They found it dramatically improved their CSA experience!

Will It Be Enough To Feed My Family? *

FULL SHARE – 9-13 items (Feeds 2-4 adults, or a small family) $696

HALF SHARE – 7-9 items (Feeds 2 adults) $360

SAMPLER SHARE – 3-5 items (Feeds 1) $240

What Will I Be Doing For My Work Share?

Each member will work 12 hours each season**.  The work is diverse and variable, but here are a few things you could be doing during your work share:

▪ Washing, sorting and packing produce with farmers for the pickup

▪ Harvesting

▪ Planting

▪ Weeding

▪ Watering

▪ Transplanting

▪ Construction

JOIN OUR CSA!

*The quantities listed are what we strive to fulfill. This is not a guarantee. CSA is a risk-sharing venture.
**You may buy out of your work share for $100.
