What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture creates a direct partnership between the community and the farm. Those who purchase a Shoshone River Farm Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Share will receive a weekly distribution of produce grown at the farm. The contents of the share will vary during the seasons as produce matures. Each share contains a number of items. Members can pick a number of additional items from a variety of herbs and vegetables not in the share. Visit our Facebook page to see contents of previous weekly shares. We have a 6 week Spring and a 20 week Summer CSA.
The prepayments for our CSA Shares provide the farm early working cash to help pay for labor, seeds, and other necessary products to start the farm in the Spring.
Being a partner means sharing the risk and bounty with the farm. By sharing the risk, you help to ensure the farm will continue another year in the case of some catastrophic event. When growing conditions are favorable, you will receive more produce than expected. When growing conditions are unfavorable, you may receive less produce than expected.
We are unable to refund any CSA purchase once the season begins.

How we Grow Shoshone River Farm began delivering produce north of Cody in Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin in 2009 (now in our 14th year). We place a great value on cultivating living soils, plant health, and flavorful, nutritional produce. We use, as much as possible, Biodynamic and French Intensive growing methods and utilize organic pesticides only when necessary. We are not organic due to our use of non-organic fertilizers. The use of these inorganic fertilizers is due to limitations of access to high quality organic fertilizers. The farm has twelve hoop houses that allow us to deliver 6 months of vegetables in our challenging climate.
