How it Works
“CSA” stands for “Chef-Supported Agriculture.” It’s a system of connecting farmers to buyers that people in the small farming community have been using for decades. In this system, farmers sell directly to consumers, who pick up their produce once per week from a pick-up point.
Using the Sweet Grass CSA, you will receive a bag of produce and food each week, containing only the freshest from local producers and house-made goods from the Sweet Grass Kitchen!
Then, once a week, you come to Sweet Grass to pick up your CSA share. We do the rest – we talk to the farmers, we gather the produce together, and we sort it into your bag. Every Wednesday, you stop into the restaurant and pick up your produce!
What’s in the bag?
Every week, we will make sure to offer a balanced basket. It won’t be all carrots – we will have the best local farmers’ produce at our fingertips and will lovingly craft your bag each week.
Every time, we will make sure that your bag includes a variety of food. With an eye towards balance, we will make sure to include vegetables that combine well together as you cook throughout the week. But it won’t be just vegetables! We are also offering freshly baked bread, cheese, eggs and other value-added products as they become available. Chef Ryan Trimm will include recipes and even some prepared items each week, such as Fresh Bread, Preserves & Pickles! At Sweet Grass, we love food – and we love to help others discover the talented farmers and chefs in the community.

What if I can’t pick up my bag or go on vacation?
If you will be unable to pick up your CSA share, just let us know if you’ll have a friend come pick it up or you can donate your bag to a local food bank!
