Doce Lume Farm was founded to...
Grow nutritious food for our friends and neighbors. Troubled by our food system that delivers food that has lost much of its nutritional value during transport and storage and that is grown on depleted soils, we set out to build healthy soils on which to grow healthy food.
We sell our food online and by Farm Share (also called a CSA -Community Supported Agriculture). CSA's connect a farm to its community in a mutually supportive relationship. People become members of a farm in exchange for recurrent shares of the farm’s seasonal harvest. The upfront purchase helps the farmer plan for and hire farm help, buy seed and materials for seedlings, irrigation and more.
The produce and herbs we received were great, and the labeling was so beautiful. We made a lovely salad last night with the greens and received compliments from our guests!
Choose what you want, enjoy flexibility in your Farm Share. You can order a full 14-week share that we pack for you, or buy a share that allows you to choose what you want from the market and take a few weeks off for summer travel. Add-ons available: delivery, flower bouquets and eggs.
I am so appreciative that you are doing the CSA thing in Skaneateles. I am delighted to be part of this effort to get fresh vegetables to my husband and me. Many thanks for your hard work and what you are doing! I can't thank you enough.
Why should I join the Doce Lume Farm CSA?
Doce Lume Farm will supply you with the freshest organic produce weekly, and give you an opportunity to learn how your food is grown.
We pay special attention to creating well-balanced shares to ensure our members receive both a variety of common produce items plus some extras to experiment with. THE USDA recommends eating 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day; we can help with that!
By joining the Doce Lume Farm's CSA you are also supporting development and growth of Go Native! perennials (GNP), a mission-driven business growing plants for re-naturalization and restoration of the Skaneateles Lake watershed (check out GNP's demo gardens and meadow). You help to improve water quality, pollinator populations, health and support local wildlife.
