We’re so glad you are considering purchasing a CSA share with Raleigh’s Hillside Farm this year!
Kyle and I started our farm in 2013 less than a year after we both graduated from the University of Madison College of Agriculture & Life Sciences. With degrees in soil science (Kyle) and rural sociology (me), a life on the land growing food for our local community together seemed simply the only existence that felt right so we got to work immediately.
When we first started farming, we had pretty much no experience and even less money so we began very small. That first year we grew on a little less than half an acre selling to eight (incredibly loyal) CSA members and at a small farmers’ market stand in Janesville on Saturdays.
It didn’t take us long to discover that CSA was where we wanted to put the majority of our energy moving forward. With Kyle‘s attention to detail, dogged work ethic and quick ability to grow diverse and high-quality vegetables alongside my strong communication skills and passion for teaching others’ how to cook, it was truly a match made in heaven.
We are obsessed with our little CSA family and we are so grateful you are considering being a part of it!
