Registration for 2014 CSA shares is happening now!
Who we are:
Loess Hills collaborative CSA is made up of two farms -- Old Tree Farm (formerly Von Weihe Farms Produce) & Botna Burrow located in Carson and Hancock, Iowa who collaborate to provide produce to shareholders in our community and the Omaha, NE / Council Bluffs, IA area.
What we offer:
Loess Hills cCSA offers shares of produce that supply enough produce to feed between two to four vegetable-eating adults. Shares are picked up every Monday for 18 weeks beginning June 2nd and ending September 29th.
All of the farmers that contribute produce to Loess Hills cCSA are committed to growing healthy food that nourishes both those who eat it and the land on which it's grown. While we are not Certified Organic currently, we grow our produce using only organic methods.

Loess Hills cCSA also partners with Iowa Western Community College to provide six cooking classes taught by Culinary Arts chef Brenda Windmuller. Classes will be held every other Monday from 5:15 to 6:15. Recipes and instruction will demonstrate new and inventive ways to prepare vegetables provided in the shares with taste testing at the end of each class.
All shareholders will have the opportunity to visit one of the farms contributing produce to Loess Hills cCSA during the growing season at the annual field day. This allows shareholders to see what the farms look like as well as learn more about vegetable farming firsthand.

The share cost of $375 per share can be paid in full by cash or check when sending in the order form, or half can be paid with the remainder due by May 1st. A delivery fee of $25 is added for Omaha pick-ups.
Shareholders also have the option of paying for shares online via credit card below, with PayPal processing fees included.
* Please be sure to use an accurate email address when you purchase using a credit card so we can contact you and get more details.
(Note: If you'd like to avoid paying PayPal fees, we recommend sending a check and an order form via mail instead.)
Given that the costs of seeds, fertilizers, and labor are paid for well in advance of harvest, we are regrettably unable to offer refunds. We appreciate your understanding and support for local farms.
