We put together a share for a family who eats a healthy amount of vegetables, and cooks at home. Each week your share will contian 5-6 different in season produce items, including fruits and herb. Since we grow so many different products it is difficult to say what you will have in your package, but you can expect plent of potatoes, summer squash, winter squash, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, eggplant, apples, peaches, pears, melons and other stuff.

The Organic Way is centrally located between Stockton, Nevada, and ElDorado Springs, Missouri. It is run by Myself (Denice) along with my two children Sandra (13) and Cullen (12). We employ 2 full time people to help James and Stacy Ratti, with additional help part time during the growing months. Although small, we grow many heirloom and rare varities of produce and producing over 100 different types of fruit and vegetables, many hard to obtain on a local basis. We have over 30 varieties of heirloom tomatoes in every color. At the Organic Way Farm, we are comitted to sustainable/organic agriculture and guarantee our produce to be healful, fresh, attractive and flavorful. We supply resturants and run a large CSA.
