The Garden: Community supported agriculture at our farm
The Fromburg Farm Community Garden started in Spring 2017 . We have Always cultivated a garden, aiming to share this joy with other People.
In the meantime, we are able to employ a young Person during her apprenticeship to become a horticulturist.
In 2020, we aim to produce vegetables in our garden on approx. 1 hectar of land , including 650 sqm inside the greenhouses.
Self-Harvest: The members of the CSA come once a week to the Fromburg farm to harvest their basket of vegetables and enjoy the farm and the garden.
Saturdays, members can also participate in the garden work. Anyone who wants to get their hands dirty can help with the sowing, picking, weeding, and learning. Together with the members, we will continue to develop the garden project and try out new plant varieties, such as melons and sweet potatoes in 2020. During the year, we will offer various activities for our members!
Our harvest season starts in April/May, with the first lettuce and herbs and ends in October/Novemberwith winter vegetables such as cabbages and potatoes. Last year, the last vegetables were harvested in January, due to the weather conditions.
Over 40 different fruits and vegetables are grown in accordance with our members. Through the use of true-to-seed varieties (mostly Bingenheimer Saatgut), our offer is fundamentally different to the hybrid plants in the supermarkets.
We plant all common vegetables, such as salads, potatoes, cabbage, beans, carrots, zucchini etc., and some plants in a greenhouse (e.g. tomatoes, chili, eggplants and peppers). Fruit, flowers, berries and a herb garden complete the offer for the members who come to Fromburg Farm to harvest their fresh vegetables.
We don’t see our CSA as solely produce production, but instead as an integrated part of our farm.
For 2019, we ll offer eggs to buy for our Members from our chickens that are kept in the garden. Furthermore, we offer Beef from our ANGUS cattle.
The participants are welcome to bring their children and family and to experience a bit of everyday farm life. There is even a playground for the kids right next the garden!
