Are our growing practices and harvested produce certified?
We are a Certified Naturally Grown producer. We are committed to growing produce free of chemical (pesticide, herbicide and fertilizers) and are inspected yearly to verify our claim. Our farm and more information regarding the CNG certification can be found here.
How much produce can I expect?
CSA members can expect to get a share of what is ready for harvest each week. Our standard weekly share is typically enough vegetables for 2-3 people.

When and where do I pick up my CSA share?
Pick ups will be at The Coffee Grounds, 4212 Southtown Drive, Eau Claire, Thursdays 2-5:30 p.m. or Saturdays 9-11:30 a.m. We ask that you choose one of those times and commit to it. We understand that it is summer and things come up, if you can't find someone to pick up for you, let us know and we'll try our best to accomadate another arrangement.
How do I make sure that I have a subscription?
CSA SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR 2019 SEASON. CONTACT US TODAY IF INTERESTED! All checks must be made out to Eat The Farm LLC. If you choose to pay in two installments, send the first half ASAP and the second payment by Friday June 1st. Please also send us your choice of pick up day, your e-mail address and a phone number for contact.
Will I receive a receipt?
Yes, we will send you a receipt when we receive your payment in full. This receipt can be used to turn in to some insurance companies for rebates, check to see if your insurance has such a rebate offering. For example, Allen and Rachel have WEA Trust, as do many university and public school teachers, check out their Trust Perks here.
If I donate a share, how does it help The Community Table?
We don't give The Community Table a weekly donation. Instead we give them large amounts at one time, enough to be able to use for a meal of 150 plus people. Last year we documented donations of 700 pounds of vegetables with a minimum market value of $1,630.
Can I visit Solheim Market Gardens?
Yes, we are proud of the practices and growing methods we use, and are happy to show and tell. If you would like to visit please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call ahead (715-559-9319) to schedule a visit. Also, we invite CSA members to a farm picnic each June, the date to be announced.
