   Sample Shares


Be a part of Downing Hollow

Community Supported Agriculture, as they write at Local Harvest, "has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer... A farmer offers a certain number of 'shares' to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a 'membership' or 'subscription') and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season."

At Downing Hollow Farm, our CSA members can buy a Spring/Summer season share, a Fall season share, or both. Then they receive a large bag (about half a bushel) of freshly-picked produce every week thereafter, until the season wraps up.

We encourage our CSA members to visit the farm!  But we also have weekly pick up points in both Memphis and Savannah. Each week in your bag of veggies (complete with a fresh loaf of bread, farm newsletter and suggested recipes), you'll take the flavor of our wholesome little hollow back home with you. That means all the tastes of spring, summer, and fall on your table, as the year unfolds.

We are absolutely committed to organic growing principles. Your food will be completely free of synthetic chemicals, and completely free of genetically modified seeds. (See our section on Agri-Culture for more on how we grow). We also are your gateway to the Olive Hill Community Growers, as diverse and friendly a bunch of neighbors as you could wish for. From time to time, our CSA will include some of their harvest – and they follow organic principles too.

Just for good measure, every share has a fresh loaf of bread – either traditional Mennonite whole wheat bread from Mrs. Wise, or Alex's famous bagels, scones, or artisan bread. All made with chemical-free flour.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, we'd love to hear from you. Or follow the sign up links for more details on becoming a member.


Our pick up point is the Uptown Bistro, every Wednesday from May through October. Uptown will also be featuring daily specials made with our produce. Email us or sign up for our 2013 CSA.


We have many friends in Memphis!  Members there can pick up their veggies at the Cooper-Young Community Farmer's Market every Saturday morning, just in time for some great weekend meals. Email us or sign up for our 2013 season.
