About the Farm
Full Cellar Farm started in 2014, offering bulk preserving and storage crop shares. In 2015, we added our weekly vegetable CSA and sold 50 shares. Since then, we have steadily increased our membership, and plan to sell 120 shares in 2018. Community Supported Agriculture is our passion and provides almost all of our income. Our CSA focuses on smaller, more manageable share sizes and allows members to choose which vegetables they get in their box each week. We farm on about 2 acres at Headwaters Incubator Farm, just east of Gresham, Oregon. We use sustainable growing methods to improve the health of the soil, water, and ecosystem. You can learn more about the farm at www.fullcellarfarmoregon.com.
