3RD DAY CSA!
You are part of 3rd day farm when becoming a CSA shareholder. You have a vested interest. You are supporting locally grown produce, meats and so much more. We want you to enjoy the farm as much as we do; after all, you are helping to build it better.
What does your money do? It buys soil block mix, seeds, compost, rock powder amendments, sea kelp, bees, non-gmo feeds for the Alpaca’s, cows, goats, chickens and pigs. It buys passive heat sources, fencing materials, soap making supplies etc. It allows 3rd Day Farm the means to bless needy families and local food pantries.
We truly believe God blessed us with 3rd Day Farm so we could bless others, not only with fresh food but with knowledge to be sustainable in our local community. Give a man a salad and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to grow a salad and he will know how to feed his family for a lifetime. CLICK HERE to download and fill out the CSA form
