COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
If you made it here that means you share our passion for amazing organic food. By supporting our small local farm you are making that option a reality for our entire community. This is truly a labor of love and we so appreciate you coming along for the ride.
The Rosebird Gardens CSA is a subscription program where members commit up front for the season and receive a weekly distribution of fresh, locally grown veggies and fruit. By investing in our farm each year, members help ensure the ongoing presence of their local farm in the community, and become connected with their food and the people who grow it. We were able to start farming full time in 2019 because of our members' investment in our CSA.
Farming is risky business, and CSA Members' direct investment in sustainable agriculture helps guarantee the presence of small, diversified family farms in our community.

Our Farm Becomes Yours
Members receive the freshest possible CNG foods produced directly from our farm, 2.5 miles from Downtown Kingman
This provides you with the unique opportunity to understand exactly what went into the production of the food you consume: where the seed came from, who planted it, how it was irrigated, who weeded it, harvested it, washed it and delivered it to you! Throughout the season we supplement our boxes with produce from regional organic farms to supply you with the best tasting home grown food in town. We promise to be transparent about exactly where your food is coming from.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN A CSA?
There's a lot to be said for food that is grown locally, naturally, and seasonally. Healthier bodies, a healthier environment and bolstering our local economy are just a few reasons. By buying a share you are voting with your dollars to support a better and healthier future for all.
BUT AREN'T I PAYING MORE?
Well, that depends on what value you give your produce. If you are simply looking at a cost per pound independent of all other variables then, possibly, yes. However, if you value intense flavor, freshness, and produce that provides you with an experience that truly connects you with your food and community then a CSA provides several layers of additional value.
WHAT IF I GET SOMETHING I DON'T LIKE?
Not to worry! Harvie allows members to rank their preferences for each type of veggie we grow. Members will have a customized box made each week based on their choices. Each week you will be notified when your box is ready for review. If you see something you're not crazy about you'll be able to swap it out for something else before pick up.
CAN I VISIT THE FARM?
We will be hosting open houses for our members periodically throughout the season so you can have an opportunity to see how your food is grown. We really believe in the power food has in creating and nurturing a healthy community and we want to do all we can to support that. If you are willing to volunteer from time to time we will put out calls for help as well.
WHAT IF I CAN'T PICK UP?
We got you. You are allowed to place a limited number of holds throughout the season where you will skip that week's pickup and be able to redeem that box at another time.
Beginning in 2020 we will also be offering delivery for an additional fee.
Still can't make a season-long commitment? Perhaps subscribing to our farm stand is a better option for you.
"Rosebird gardens is the first CSA I've subscribed to. I love the fresh veggies and eggs, and appreciate knowing I can trust MY farmer. I found a special community with Andrea and her CSA members. I also feel a healthy sense of pride knowing that as I feed myself and my family well, I'm also supporting an early-career farmer and her land. Supporting a female entrepreneur was and continues to be important to me, as is having organic, green vegetables in the middle of the desert. To me, Rosebird Gardens is a hidden treasure of Kingman."
