We practice sustainability at the farm. Crop rotation, use of drip irrigation and re-using the flower water each week are some of the ways we are being kind to the earth.
As of March 11th we are sold out for our coming season of harvest boxes. If you are interested in joining us for 18 weeks of our beautiful flower share, please email Lorrie at email@example.com. We have 3 flower shares for the season available.
Our harvest boxes are on Tuesdays with pickup between 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farm. 8005 Portland Rd. N.E. Salem, Oregon.

Our inaugural season as a CSA
Ken Meier started Shady Maple Farm in 1960 and ran it until his passing in 2011. We hope to continue our Dad’s love of gardening and good, healthy food through our Shady Maple Farm CSA. Shady Maple Farm is still the home of a wide variety of fruit trees, berries, and perennial vegetables. The greenhouses are up and running. Our first “starts” are in place and more will be seeded. Transplanting and direct sowing will begin soon. We hope you will join us in our inaugural season and allow us to continue the Shady Maple Farm tradition: a wide variety of quality fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Each week you will receive a harvest box filled with the latest bounty from the garden.
Below is a sample of what we intend to grow and provide:
apples (crab, king, Granny Smith, red delicious)
melons (cantaloupe, honeydew, water)
black berries (Marion, Kotata, Sylvan, Siskiyous, Triple Crown, Waldo)
beans (green, purple)
beets (red, orange)
carrots (orange, yellow, purple)
corn (Golden Jubilee, Honey and Cream)
cucumbers (slicing, pickling, lemon)
greens (arugula, kale, spinach, Swiss chard)
lettuce (head, loose leaf, Romaine)
onions (cippolina, Walla Walla Sweets, red, white, yellow)
peas (snap, snow)
peppers (hot, mild, many colored bells)
squash (acorn, butternut, patty pan – yellow and white, spaghetti, delicata, yellow crookneck, zucchini)
tomatoes (small, medium, large; Heirlooms; red, orange, yellow, green, purple)
Herbs basils - green and purple, rosemary, oregano
All weekly boxes will contain the same items in roughly the same quantities as the harvest provides. Your first “harvest box” will be available on May 29th. Your last on September 25th. That’s 18 weeks of farm fresh goodness.
