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.

A little cuddle time between picking time.

A nice warm day to check out all the strawberry plants. 

Lemon grass growing in the lathe house.

appears to be getting heavy.

Regular cauliflower with a
touch of purple. Hmmmm???

Anna, with baby out of the sun in a
front pack, trims the rhubarb.




New for us this year, purple podded peas.
The blossoms and joints of the plant are various shades of purple. Stop by and check them out Tuesday.

Artichokes this week.

A few Sun Sugar tomatoes from the greenhouse.

Just enough Sun Sugars for our Tuesday salad. Yum! Thanks Anna.

(Can't you just imagine a fox slipping
his/her foot into one of these?)

Pink roses. Such full clusters of beauty.

A critter thinks this is heavenly, too.

Delicate peony.

More variety on the way.
