The Sycamore Ridge suscription CSA offering is on a whole season basis, for a minimum of 22 weeks.(historically over 26 weeks). Fifteen or more varieties of vegetables, small fruits, and in addition, cut flowers. Actual number of varieties likely greater. Quantities vary - depending on time of the season; expect a minimum of half a brown shopping bag to well over during peak harvest. Emphasis on variety, quality, color and other gourmet features.
Sycamore Ridge farm is a small scale intensive vegetable and cut flower enterprise located approximately 11 miles north of Gettysburg. The current farmhouse and land is a remnant of one of the earliest settlements in the area. The soil is a rich organic clay-silt mix, and strewn with small rocks of numerous types, signaling that this was a glacier affected area. The variety of rocks likely enhance the presence of trace minerals on a continuous basis.
Sycamore Ridge concentrates on variety, color and overall gourmet quality vegetables and small fruits. Harvesting at the petite stage is part of this offering. It is a part time operation with most work performed 'in-house'. Natural growing practices are employed as much as practical, with Certified Naturally Grown a transitional goal.
