Each year before harvesting our first CSA shares we have offered an early sign-up promotion. Once again, we are offering this same promotion. Early sign-ups are critical for a small farm as the revenue pays for labor and other investments needed to prepare for the current season.
The promotion we are offering this season is for sign-ups that join for 12 or 42 week shares. Anyone who signs up by the last day of February 2015 will be given 1 or 2 extra share(s), respectively. Please, consider signing up early so that the farm will have the needed revenue to successfully implement our 2015 growing plan.
Once you have completed our online CSA signup form, you will have selected your pick-up your day. Your first share will be ready for you to pick-up on that next selected pick-up day.
If today is Monday and you selected Tuesday as your pick-up day, then plan on receiving your share on the next day which would be Tuesday. If today is Monday and you selected Monday as your pick-up day, then plan on picking up your share the next Monday.
We will always contact you via email once your signup has been completed. Our process is to add you to our software system which tracks your number of pick-ups and pick-up day. Our software system will send you an automatic email with your profile information. If you do not receive this email please check your spam inbox.
Creating a CSA that is very convenient is a priority for La Nay Ferme. This is one reason we have created a Bag Swap for our CSA members. Today we are offering another option that makes our CSA very convenient.
A delivery company found us recently and is offering La Nay Ferme customers a delivery service. They will come to our farm, pick-up your share or Farm Market order and deliver to your door. If you are in the following locations your produce can be delivered.
$3 – Delivery to Provo, Orem, Vineyard and Lindon
$4 – Delivery to Pleasant Grove
$5 – Delivery to American Fork and Highland (South of 11000 N)
All you need to do is contact Milton’s Delivery and they will pick-up your produce from our farm.
If there is one thing that a majority of Americans can unify over its our love for convenience. We are trying to do anything possible to make our CSA convenient for our members and new customers. Our bag swap option is something very unique to a CSA and offers convenience to those that purchase a share.
This year we have been experimenting with how members renew their share with a payment system named Venmo. Venmo is a very simple to use and convenient for anyone with a smart phone or internet access. All members need to do is open an account with Venmo, link your Bank Account, Credit or Debit Card to your account and then you are ready to send a payment.
If you want to simplify how you pay for your renewing your share, please email us the next time you are ready to renew.
Every week CSA Members enjoy bags full of fresh in-season produce, directly from our farm in Provo, UT.

Switching Pickup Days or Locations
Members can switch their pickup day or location anytime. Simply email us at least 24 hours in advance of expected delivery and we’ll make the switch.
Skipping a Week
When you’re out of town email us at least 24 hours in advance of your regular pickup day and we will cancel your share for that week. An additional week will be added on the tail of you cycle so you don’t lose a week. You also have the option of gifting your share to a friend or family member and having them pickup that week. Keep in mind, we if don’t hear from you and do prep a share that is never picked up it will count as one of your pickups.
Putting Membership on Hold
Those who have their own gardens like this option. They enjoy the early spring harvest our high tunnels allow, put their membership on hold in the summer months when their garden is in full production and resume pickups in the fall months when their garden in slowing down. This can also be used for vacations and times when you can’t use the produce. Just let us know the date you’d like to freeze and resume.
For those who don’t enjoy arugula or want an extra bag of spinach instead of chard, we offer a bag swap. Members simply go to this online form and exchange a bag for a different bag that’s available at the farm.
Most members enjoy receiving their weekly fresh produce from our share delivery service. For those that wish to pickup their share we offer a few pickup days each week. Members can choose from the following days and locations:
Provo At the Farm
Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday from 12:00 am to 8:00 pm
There are many benefits to becoming a CSA Member. Here are some of the top reasons to join the farm:
Freshness and Fully Ripened Produce
We harvest CSA Shares the morning of pickups. This ensures that members enjoy the freshest product possible. In comparison, the majority of grocery-store produce is grown out of state or out of country. This forces growers to harvest their produce prior to ripeness. The product then ripens on the truck or plane, usually with the assistance of chemicals, and is then placed on the store shelves where it can await purchase for numerous days.
Our local farm produce is harvested when it is fully ripened and picked up by customers within hours of harvest.
Unique Heirloom Varieties
All of the seeds used at the farm are carefully selected from trusted sources who care for the earth and maintain high standards for seed production. We are continually fine-tuning the crops we grow and determining which varieties do best in our climate and soil. Members love the unique heirloom varieties we produce and enjoy the taste and beauty of purple carrots, white tomatoes, candy-stripe beets and many more unique vegetables only found at local farms.
Healthy, Mineral-Rich Soil
Healthy plants start with healthy soil. We play close attention to our soil’s nutrition levels and use the following practices to ensure the most mineral-rich soil as possible: green manures, cover-crops, compost and crop rotation.
Natural Produce, No Harsh Chemicals or Fertilizers
With quality seeds and healthy soil our plants stay strong and are able to fight most pests on their own. We strive to create an environment where beneficial insects can thrive to maintain a healthy ecosystem at the farm. When pests are an issue we use organic, natural and traditional methods to get things back in balance.
Nearly Year Round Harvests
The farm started out with one high-tunnel and has grown to now 42 high-tunnels all 75 feet long. This provides us with thousands of feet of indoor growing space. Our high-tunnels are unheated and uncooled. Through the simple use of plastics, row-covers and shade-clothes we maintain favorable growing temperatures for produce nearly all year. We typically stop-production in December or January and resume pick-ups the end of February or beginning of March.
We strive to provide the most nutritious, flavorful, unique, natural and quality product around. Become a member today and enjoy the upcoming bountiful harvests of your local farm.
