Winter is still in full swing, but it will not be long before we are preparing the fields for our first spring seeds and transplants. We are very excited about our third year in production at Turtle Bend Farm and are also excited to announce our 2011 CSA program. We have a few important changes this year so please read more details below. Please email us to request a copy of our application and information sheet. You can return the application to us along with your down payment and delivery site preference to reserve your spot. We expect to fill up in about a month so please do not hesitate if you are seriously interested, and as always, please contact us with any questions!

26 Weeks of Seasonal Vegetables
We are now offering one long subscription instead of two shorter sessions. We will deliver weekly boxes of seasonal vegetables for 26 weeks beginning Wednesday, May 18th. The cost of each week is $25 per week for a total of $650 for the entire season.* We have several payment plans on the application to help accommodate this larger up-front cost. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange an alternate payment plan.
* For customers picking up at the Rockmart Farmers Market, the cost of the program is $23 per week for a total cost of $598.
New Delivery Sites
We are excited to announce that we will return to the Atlanta area with our CSA program. We are now forming new drop sites for the Decatur area and downtown Atlanta. Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a delivery site host and we will give you more information, including our discount for hosting. We require a MINIMUM of 5 members per site, depending on location, but we prefer 10 members per site. We also have a new delivery site for our Cobb county customers at The Gardens at Kennesaw Mountain located at 1127 White Circle NW in Kennesaw. More details are listed on the application.
