The CSA Relationship

Back to Top
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a commitment for both the farmer and the member.  We treasure the stability you bring to our family-run business.  In turn, we commit to providing our best, most-flavorful veggies each week.

Let our members tell you about our farm.

  • “This is the highest quality CSA I’ve ever been a part of.”
  • “We are Tipi Produce groupies!
  • “Our kids love opening the box each week.  Thank you so much for growing beautiful, organic, happy vegetables for our family!  We’ll see you at the berry u-pick.”

CSA Shares & Prices

2023 May – October Shares

Scroll down for “What’s in the Boxes?”.

2023 Fall Shares

These shares are delivered after our May – Oct season ends.   Take a look at what we delivered in these shares last season.

Organic Apple Shares .

We partner with Chris & Juli McGuire of Two Onion Farm to offer organic apple shares at some Madison-area pickup sites.  See the site list below.

Apple CSA deliveries begin in mid-August, run 12 weeks, and include apples from the 20 varieties they grow.  They offer multiple shares and schedules.  Sign up for Two Onion apples here.

Local, organic fruit is scarce, so we are thrilled to offer this partnership.  Chris and Juli are experienced CSA farmers who are passionate about organic orcharding.  They focus on locally-adapted varieties with diverse flavors, far beyond what you will taste in supermarket apples.

What’s in the Boxes?

We pack a variety of fresh, certified organic items in each weekly CSA box.  Most will be vegetables that you know and use: broccoli, melons, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and many more.  See our list of crops below.  We provide variety within these crops.  For example, we grow many types of fragrant sweet peppers: red, yellow, green, orange, purple, Italian.   We will stretch your experience by mixing in unusual vegetables such sweet salad turnips and Yukina greens (a favorite leafy green in late fall).  The fruits we grow are strawberries, muskmelons, and watermelons.

We craft our boxes with compatible mixes, paired with recipes for easy preparation.  We strive to provide a member of the onion family each week (onions, garlic, leeks, scallions) because they are so useful.   The number of items varies from 7 to 13 items per week.  Spring boxes are the lightest, while summer and fall boxes are heavier and contain a wider variety of items.  We pack your produce in a reuseable 3/4-bushel box.

Crops We Grow

Below is a list of the crops we grow and a projected harvest schedule.  Each season is unique, so not all crops succeed each year.

Weekly Recipes

Back to Top
Deb Shapiro of DebsLunch and Phoebe Moore provide us with delicious weekly recipes designed to suit a wide range of cooking styles.  Members tell us the recipes are a terrific tool for enjoying their CSA produce.  Check our weekly newsletter to see sample recipes.


Read our weekly newsletter for information about the week’s veggies, plus news and photos from the farm.

Farm Events

Back to Top
Our farm is located just 35 minutes southeast of Madison.  CSA members are invited to visit during our farm celebrations.  Children especially enjoy the farm events and the excitement and drama of harvesting their own vegetables.  Watch their faces as they pull a bright orange carrot out of the ground!  Farm events are open to CSA members but not the general public.  We charge for the strawberries and tomatoes that you take home, but not for the mulberries, pumpkins or fall gleanings.

  • Strawberry U-Picks
    Come enjoy ripe strawberries picked fresh from the plants.  Weather permitting, we offer strawberry u-picks on two weekends in mid-to-late-June.
  • Tomato U-Picks
    Come harvest plum tomatoes to take home for sauce or to preserve for winter.  U-pick(s) will be held when the crop is ready in August or September.
  • Pumpkin U-Pick & Gleaning Party (member favorite!)
    Choose your Halloween jack-o-lantern and explore the farm in early October.  We offer several crops for members to glean for their own use.  The gleanings vary from year to year, but have included pumpkins, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, red peppers, watermelons, greens, herbs and sweet potatoes in previous years.  All pumpkins and gleanings are free.

Extra Produce

Back to Top
When abundant, we will offer sales of tomatoes, basil and kale for canning or freezing.  If amounts are limited, we will give the weekly and every-other-week members priority in placing orders.

We understand that members go on vacation during the CSA season. You have several options when on vacation:

  • You can reschedule up to three boxes per season.  Please give us one week advance notice.  Details here.

  • You can cancel your box.  Please give us one week advance notice.

Payment Options

  • Pay with SNAP or Quest, see below.

HMO Wellness Programs

Back to Top
Madison-area HMO members may be eligible for a rebate or reward up to $200 for CSA enrollment.  Contact your HMO or go to the FairShare website for links to the HMO websites.  In the Milwaukee area, WEA Trust offers HMO rebates for some policy holders.

HMO payment guidelines:

  • We send an email receipt after you register and pay for your CSA share.  Submit the receipt to your HMO’s wellness program.  Your HMO will send your reward directly to you.
  • The HMOs will only reimburse you for checks that have already been deposited.
  • Each household eligible for an HMO wellness reward should write their own check(s) directly to Tipi Produce so we can verify your payment with your HMO.


That’s a load of spring seedlings, ready to transplant to the field.  We park them outside in a sunny, sheltered spot for a few days, so they can harden off and be ready for wind and sun in the field.

And here they go into the ground on a gorgeous spring day!
