You may be asking, "What is a Flower CSA?"
Well, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between a community and a local farmer, often a fruit or vegetable farmer, but in this case a flower farmer. In this relationship, I provide you, the CSA subscriber, with a designed bouquet of seasonal blooms for each week of your subscription. Like any subscription arrangement, you pay up front, and then I deliver your fresh, local, organic flowers to you each week for 25, 15, or 5 weeks.
You may also give a gift subscription to a special someone, who will be reminded of your love week after week!
By purchasing a membership in Kira's Flower CSA, you not only get fresh, beautiful flowers in your home each week, but you also become part of positive change within the flower industry, helping to protect the earth and all living things.

Kira's Flower CSA Basics
1. You will receive a variety of organically grown fresh flowers from my farm each week at your preferred pickup location. The flowers will either be cut flowers grown on the farm or wildflowers foraged on the property. I am growing over 75 types of flowers, including tulips, alliums, snapdragons, zinnias, yarrow, rudbeckia, strawflowers, celosia, ageratum, larkspur, salvia, gladiolus and sunflowers -- to name just a few.
2. Since every season the spring warms up at a slightly different time, there is not a set begin and end date for the CSA. The full season CSA will go from mid April to October, partial season from mid June to October, and CSA sampler from August to the end of September. I will send out an email approximately one week before the CSA begins and another the week before it ends.
