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 shadymaplefarmcsa@gmail.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.
