What is the Skarsgard Farms Harvest Box Program?
Throughout the course of human history, people have had a strong connection to the land. It has only been recently that our families and towns have struggled to keep that connection intact. Today, more and more people are joining together to illustrate that a food system can be environmentally friendly, financially sustainable, and ethically just for everyone involved.
The Skarsgard Farms Harvest Box Program is a special relationship that a farmer, or a group of farmers, engages in with his or her local consumers. Members of the community sign up in advance for a “share” of all the fruits, vegetables, and flowers that a farmer will produce in a given season. Skarsgard Farms members then either come to the farm once a week to pick up their “share” of the bounty or select to pick the box up at a location close to the member’s home. Home delivery is available in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Los Alamos via our Skarsgard Farms website.
By working within a network of certified Organic regional growers, we are able to operate our Harvest Box Program on a year-round basis. So you will always have access to the freshest fruits and vegetables available.
Each member also has the flexibility to select how many weeks he/she would like to participate. Furthermore, we offer three different sizes of Harvest Box and every other week options. We are trying to make our CSA an educational, fun, and convenient way for you to support a local farm and enjoy top-quality produce.
Our Harvest Box Program also helps the local economy by keeping money in the community. More money in the community means more jobs locally.
Please join us for a very exciting journey as we change the face of agriculture in New Mexico.
