How To Buy

We offer three types of food for purchase: vegetables (includes fruits), eggs and herbs. Each week your share of our crop is delivered to one of numerous convenient Chicagoland drop off points for you to pick up. We deliver on time. It’s that simple to enjoy healthy, locally grown produce. Please also visit us at local farmers markets, or let us know if you are interested in wholesale accounts.

Our complete program lasts a full nine months. Most CSA programs last five, maybe six months. That just wasn’t good enough so we extended our season from April until December by growing early and late crops in hoophouses.

 

 


 



CSA Shares

VEGETABLES

Our boxes contain seasonal vegetables rounded out with in-season fruits and herbs. Some CSA's offer fruit shares as an add-on for an additional charge. We believe fruits belong in your lunchbox so we include them in the base price.

You get a wonderful variety of veggies and fruits in each delivery so you can make delicious meals for your family. We grow over 250 varieties of veggies so you get a healthy, seasonal mix of great tasting and fresh produce. One woman said, "I know I will use everything in my Genesis box because the variety is so great. The last CSA I joined sent me a lot of just a few items. I ended up canning or freezing large portions."

What Is A Share?

Plans (shares of our production) are available for Spring, Summer and Fall in both medium and large sizes. Farming is not an exact science so some weeks may be a bit light while other weeks the box is overflowing.

A medium share is enough for 2 – 3 people, 20% larger than a paper grocery bag
A large share is enough for 4 – 5 people, 60% larger than a paper grocery bag

EGGS AND CHICKENS
