About our CSA

Each week, you will receive a share of whatever is ripe and ready to eat, grown by Sustainable Agriculture students. Our focus is to deliver a wide array of high quality produce, along with menu ideas planned for every box.           

Everything is grown for you, our local community, using sustainable practices. Your CSA membership gets you fresh, tasty fruits and veggies while students receive the opportunity to learn how to run a sustainable farm and produce for a local direct market. Everything in our CSA is grown here at Shone Farm.

Each week’s produce will change, but a share should feed 2-3 people.

Here are a few typical items that you might see in the box each season:

Summer - Zucchini, cucumbers, lettuce and other greens, sweet corn, carrots, new potatoes, fresh herbs, berries, and apples

Fall - Tomatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers, lettuce and other greens, winter squash, broccoli, lemons, and apples

CSA Details:

We select a wide variety of unique produce to tantalize your taste buds, as well as some of the tried and true staples.  We also strive to include a variety of unique items such as Shone Farm olive oil, dried beans, sweet potatoes and Sonora wheat.

Seasonal Farm Stand

Shone Farm operates a seasonal farm stand near the Santa Rosa campus. The farm stand is currently closed, and 2018 details will be announced soon.

Shone Farm Olive Oil

Shone Farm has two acres of organically farmed olive trees planted in close spacing to produce our award winning olive oils. The three main varieties that we bottle individually are Arbosana, Arbequina, and Koroneiki. We also produce a Millers Blend of all three. Try some today to taste the terroir of Shone Farm!

Currently available at Oliver’s Market and directly from the farm.

Grass Fed Beef

We sell our 100% grass fed beef to the public.  Selected cuts are available now - click here for the order form.  E-mail us at shonefarm@santarosa.edu if you have any questions.

For those of you not familiar with locally raised grass fed beef, this is what Shone Farm beef is all about:

  • When you purchase our beef, you know you are getting 100% pasture raised, grass fed beef maintained right here at Shone Farm, by our students.
  • Buying from local farms supports the local economy, your community, and in this case helps educate future farmers!
  • Our cattle have pastureland to roam and graze.
  • Grass fed beef packs a lot of flavor. 
  • Grass-fed beef is also a leaner choice, with more omega-3 fatty acids than grain fed beef.
