High Altitude Harvest is taking a break this year...
The High Altitude Harvest CSA will be on hiatus for 2018. Many of our growers are in a period of transition with their farms - due to family needs, medical issues, land tenure uncertainty, the need for off-farm jobs, and the simple fact that it's really hard to make a living farming. Because many of our growers are experiencing this need to scale back or take a break from production at the same time, we didn't feel confident that we would have enough variety and volume of locally grown food to fill our CSA shares this year. So we're taking a break, and we'll wait and see what 2019 brings. We SO appreciate all of our loyal members who have enjoyed their CSA shares with gusto over the past 8 years! Thank you for being the core supporters of our local food movement, your commitment to local eating has meant the world to us farmers. Hopefully we'll bounce back with renewed vigor after a little breather!
Welcome to High Altitude Harvest!
Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) provides the food-lovers of Plumas County with delicious, locally grown produce. High Altitude Harvest members receive a weekly share of veggies, fruits and herbs straight from small-scale, Plumas County farmers. Our CSA works with multiple farms so members get the best variety of mountain-grown produce our region has to offer.
What's a CSA?
We like to think of Community Supported Agriculture as a partnership between farmers and eaters. Members reserve their shares in the spring, letting the farmers know that they have a secure market for summer growing season. Our farmers plant a variety of crops - based on CSA member feedback - providing members with fresh, delicious, super-good-for-you produce all season long.
Our Philosophy in a Nutshell
We believe that the quality of the food people eat directly affects their wellbeing. We believe that farmers do valuable work and should be fairly compensated for growing good food. We believe that soil, bugs, air, and water should all benefit from farm practices. And finally, we believe that there is satisfaction in knowing that the food we grow creates delicious meals, a thriving local economy, and vibrant landscapes. Eat up!
