Our 2018 CSA is coming to an end, and we are still planning our 2019 CSA details.  Our CSA usually begins in June and runs through December.  We should have the 2019 CSA details finalized by April 2019, so check back!

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

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.

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, directly from the farm, or at the SRJC Culinary Cafe.

Grass Fed Beef

We have a limited amount of grass fed beef available to purchase.  We sell it at our Pick and Sip Saturday events, which will be Nov. 17th and Dec. 15th from 11 AM - 3 PM at the farm.

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.
