CSA Membership: More than good food


"Eating with the fullest pleasure –pleasure, that is, that does not depend on ignorance –is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world.  In this pleasure we experience and celebrate our dependence and gratitude, for we are living from mystery, from creatures we did not make and powers we cannot comprehend." - Wendell Berry

In the past nine seasons we have harvested over 55 tons of fresh fruits and vegetables at Victory Acres. That's a lot of food! You have lots of options when it comes to where you spend your food dollars. So what differentiates Victory Acres CSA from the organic section of your local grocery store?

Our CSA members have a chance to really know their farmer. They know where their food is raised and how hard their farmer works to bring them that great food.

Another Year is Here! PDF Print E-mail

It's hard to believe it, but we are kicking off our 10th growing season at Victory Acres!  God has given us an amazing 55 tons of vegetables over the past nine seasons, providing healthy, abundant, vibrant food to over 400 different CSA members and their families.  Over 2,000 people have been blessed by being a part of Victory Acres in one way or another.  That's a lot of blessing!

It was made possible because of God's blessings and members like you. We are so thankful for that. We started counting our blessings, and here's even more ...

Meat
Over 9 calves are fattening up and 9 pigs (with more calves and piglets to be born this spring) ... so YOU can fill your freezer with delicious, all natural, farm-raised pork and beef. Lean hamburger, steaks and breakfast sausage in several flavors. Amazing!
Eggs
Over 20 dozen eggs per week are layed so that YOU can have the best eggs anywhere!  Tasty!
Honey
The bees have been very busy filling their bee hives that you helped to establish this past year. Natural local honey tastes great and it's good for what ails you.
Maple Syrup
Because of our partnership with Fellowship Farm in Garden, MI, you are able to enjoy 100% maple syrup that is healthy and tastes great. Available year round!
Vegetables
You have been able to enjoy over 35 varieties of Certified Naturally Grown veggies over the past nine years, and you, our members have received virtually all 55 TONS of that healthy harvest! What a blessing!
Fruit
Because of you, our donors and farm developers, fruit trees, blackberries and raspberries, and other tasty perennial fruits have been added for you to enjoy. With Pears, Asian Pears, Apples, Cherries, and Peaches just around the corner, there's soon going to be a lot more bounty to share!

You: Without you, none of this exists. We know that.

We are truly blessed to have you as a member of our Victory Acres' Community Supported Agriculture family. We thank God for you and your support across the years.

Won't you join us in thanking God for the blessings of Victory Acres? It's such a blessing to have CSA members like you!

In Christian Love,
