Summer!!! 2024 CSA Program Details and Welcome Packet

Hello Dear CSA Members! Welcome to the Summer 2024 CSA program! We are so happy and grateful to have each and every one of you as members for the next 16 weeks! We hope that you enjoy the season immensely and have a great enough experience to continue with us in the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons as well.

The following are all the details for the 2024 SUMMER CSA PROGRAM - Starting FRIDAY, June 14TH (ALL LOCATIONS). The schedule will resume to be on Thursdays & Fridays (depending on location [see below] the following week - June 20th & 21st). The season is a full 16 weeks long with the final week coming on Thursday & Friday, the last week of September.

It is recommended that you print out this entire post to utilize as a reference for the entire season (we recommend reducing the size to 50% - or so - to reduce paper and ink). This packet of information will be what we will cover in the pre-season meeting.

THE PRESEASON MEETING IS REQUIRED FOR NEW MEMBERS. Though it is not required for existing members, it is beneficial to get a refresher!

The pre-season meeting will be held on Monday, JUNE 10th @ 6pm (you should already have received e-mail communication regarding this)  If you have any questions, this would be a great time to ask. We will do our best to keep it short. 45 Minutes is the goal. The meeting will

stay posted for about a month after the meeting so you can go back and re-watch it. To tune in to the Facebook Live and to participate you must already be a member* of the Ahavah Community Facebook Group  before the meeting.

** The video will be posted to Youtube and sent out for all non-Facebook users and for those who cannot make it.

6 Important Tips for a Great Experience

What to expect:

2024 is our 10th CSA YEAR!!!, and we are proud to say that we have built one of the best CSA programs in the United States, and this past year we were recognized as the most sustainable farm in the United States for the second year in a row (2023 and 2024!!)!

These accolades don't come without very high standards of excellency, although we are far from perfect, we strive very hard to ensure that our CSA program reflects this and we hope you will have the best CSA experience you have ever had because we want you to be members of our FARMily for years to come!


The season is 16 weeks long (Fall will be 12 weeks and Winter will be 8 weeks). One of the things that makes our CSA unique is our ability to balance out the value of your shares throughout the entire season, every season. This means that you won't receive a glut of veggies at the beginning of the season or really sparse shares at the end or vice versa. We grow a lot of varieties that other farms don't grow, but we also try not to grow too many "odd" varieties and try to keep those to the fringes for a fun change-up. Instead we grow mostly the staples you're familiar with and expand from there. We also try our best to include just one, sometimes two, varieties of microgreens in each share. These are highly sought after, and truth be told, many members' ultimate reason for being a member - they are that good. The varieties and some of the "bulk" may change throughout the season, but we try our best to keep things balanced. To learn more about what we grow, CLICK HERE.


The goal, from our perspective, is to give you as much variety as we can, while providing you with more than you paid for. Our goal is the following: >5% (small's), >10% (Medium's), and >15% (Large's) more value than what you paid for (we have NEVER failed at this goal, even in the worst of times). In the last season, Spring of 2024, we were able to give our members the following:

Share Size

Auto-Renewal Members (additional 5%)

Non-Auto-Renewal Members


11.86% Savings

6.86% Savings


20.51% Savings

15.51% Savings


23.8% Savings

18.8% Savings


Every Thursday we will send out a newsletter to our members and non-members. This newsletter will not only have articles and updates that are important to our members and community, but it will also be our main form of communication which will include your weekly harvest, what's in your bags that week and also what's available at the market and for sale! This newsletter will include any important changes and information you may need.

Below is a picture of the bag-packing list for traditional shares, we also include pictures of the market style and extras boards each week. You can click and expand the pictures.

PS. In addition to being e-mailed our, this newsletter will also be posted to Facebook, to the Community Facebook Page and also to the blog at Be sure to check these locations weekly if you don't receive our e-mails.

SUMMER🌿🌞🌻Season Expectations Specifically🥬:

This year so far has been incredible! The winter season was the best winter we have ever had as far as value, variety and abundance and the spring season followed in it's footsteps. In short, we put together some of the best seasons we have ever had in ten years! This sets us up for very high expectations for the summer season.

So far the summer preparations are top-notch. The entire farm is completely planted, the varieties are growing and are in full-swing and the mindset is that this summer might make the best summer season we have ever had as well. In addition to the planting, the farm is nearly completely weeded and the team is working at an efficiency that this farm hasn't seen in years - if not ever.

As far as the varieties go, as is typical here in Colorado the season will start out with what will feel like an extension to spring, albeit with more variety and more abundance. For the month of June you can expect things like turnips, lettuce, kale, swiss chard, fennel, scallions, kohlrabi and more. Once we get through June we can expect to continue many of those varieties but you will also start to see some summer squash arrive towards the end of the month and then by July we will start to see some beans, cucumbers and finally some tomatoes at the end of the month of July (we may get them a little sooner, but we will see). As we make our way into August we will see more of an abundance of fruiting veggies like squash, tomatoes, beans, cucumbers and peppers and in September we will start to see the onions, and perhaps, if we are lucky we will see some winter squash before the season is out.

It's going to be an incredible season! I hope you are excited, because I know we are!


Since this is a 100% local CSA, with 100% of everything being grown by our farm, there may be

fluctuations in your share sizes from week to week. There also may be items you have not tried before (actually probably many! - which is the fun!). We do our best to have as many protected crops as possible: against wind, hail, pests and more. However, nothing is 100% and this is FARMING. That means that it is not always up to us whether or not mother nature decides to give us a good season or a not-so-good season. Either way, we aim to get you quality produce consistently week after week.


Traditional Share: The traditional style CSA is a pre-packed bag every week of the season. The bag contents will vary from week to week (you will receive a list of what is in your bag). It may include a live herb plant from time to time. Many people love traditional because they get to be creative and try a large variety of items that they normally wouldn't select themselves. We try our best to make it as varied as possible. The benefits of the traditional share really boils down to convenience because we know the fuss of selecting and packing your veggies may not be your "thing" and that's ok! **This is the only option for door-to-door delivery, late pickup at Ranch Foods Direct, Woodland Park, Fountain and Elizabeth locations.

Market Style: The most beloved of all our programs and the most unique aspect to our CSA relative to so many others. With this option you show up and select your veggies from the coolers provided. Of course we provide tongs, signage, scales and bags for your convenience. Being a market-style member is a huge benefit to so many that are seeking community, choice and the feeling of being at a market. It's fun and lively, the like-mindedness of our community is really unique and to see the friendships being cultivated is heart-warming and special. The downsides to the market-style include the lack of convenience and if you are a late-comer, meaning you show up at the last minutes, there may be less choice available (since they have all been picked through). However, we try to balance it out so that we have plenty of variety throughout.

If you come to the farm you will see the banner below. It's how we treat each other and how we demand to treat you, our friends and community.


Try traditional. Try market. Try them both!!

Change Any Time!

Did you know that you can choose either Traditional OR Market-style for your CSA membership? That's right, and it's one of the things that makes the Ahavah Farm CSA program unique. Not sure which one to try? Try them both - feel free to change your share selection any week. Simply e-mail Jessie and let her know that you would like to change from a Market to Traditional or vice-versa any time you choose. PS. You can do the same with your locations!

Want to Change Your Location?

We Invite You - ANYTIME!!

Did you know that you can switch your CSA pickup location ANYTIME!? You can switch for just one week, or 2 or the whole season...or whatever you choose! When you switch your CSA pickup location

to the Farm you'll be able to experience the farmer's market happening at the time of pickup, you can join the classes and events, view the farm, visit the nursery and meet YOUR community!

Though we want as MANY people as possible to pickup at the Farm, switching your CSA can occur between any of the other locations as well.

Simply e-mail Beth to let her know you'd like to switch for the season, the week or the month!


All communication for changes, holds, requests etc. MUST come through official E-MAIL and not through phone calls, Social Media, or even through Farm staff.

Founded in April of 2018, our mission is to connect people who are facing food insecurity due to financial struggles to locally-farmed, regeneratively-grown produce, and to provide education centered around healthy living and environmental consciousness.

We do this by offering free CSA Memberships, offering classes, events, free garden plants and more.

Ahavah Community Initiative is a one-of-a-kind registered 501c3 non-profit organization that serves our community in a unique and wholesome way. We believe in this mission so much that all board members (including the Camire family) donate personally to it. Do you believe in this organization too? Please, if you do, consider donating if you have the ability!

Interested in making a tax-deductible donation to ACI? Ahavah Community Initiative is registered as a 501c3 with the State of Colorado as a non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

Oh the amazing power of community and crowdfunding!

Every week, at all of the CSA locations, we have a bin or jar that looks similar to this. We ask all of our members to consider bringing just one - five dollars with them every week to help us provide a CSA membership to a families in need next season.

Don't say your dollars aren't important! The only way crowdfunding works is if we all participate. Your $1 - $5 is vitally important and it is directly through this program that we raise the majority of ACI's food donation funds than any other fundraising program, and yet it is the absolute easiest for all of our members to participate!

During the Fall season, your Bring-A-Buck dollars will allow us to donate Fall CSA shares to families facing food insecurity and to offer subsidized shares to struggling families as well.

Ahavah Means Love.

We aim to BE love to our community. We aren't perfect, but we strive, and we hope you will too!

DID YOU KNOW that "Ahavah" means "Love" in Hebrew?

As most of you know, the name of our farm, "Ahavah," means "Love," but that's the English translation. So what does "Ahavah" actually mean and why did we name our farm this?

For many of us, when we say, "Ahavah means love" (which we say a lot), the idea that some conjure up immediately is an emotional, lovey-dovey, warm and fuzzy feeling of affection - and we get this reaction all the time: "Oh, that's so nice," we often hear, and I can immediately see in their heads that they are "feeling" the word, as opposed to "visualizing" the word and it's intended meaning.

So what is the intended meaning? The HEBREW word "Ahavah" or 'love" means "to serve, to be kind and to give." This is the literal meaning of the word for love and it is broken up in the following manner: the word "ahav" literally means "to give" while the word "ahavah" literally means "I give." Imagine for a moment that when you kissed your children goodnight, or share a moment with your spouse, or tell a friend "I love you" that what you really meant was "I give of myself to you and will sacrifice my life for yours." This is the true meaning behind what the word Ahavah means and what Ahavah Farm stands for. When we say, "Ahavah Farm" what we really mean is "Giving of Ourselves Farm" but that just doesn't have the same ring to it 🙂 .

As Jews, our family is called first and foremost to "be ahavah": givers of ourselves. To be kind, to be generous, to be uplifting and encouraging, to serve others, to make a difference in people's lives, to be stewards of our earth and to our environment. If this is our family's mission, shouldn't it be the mission of everything in our lives as well ...even this farm?

We believe that nothing is ours, not even our own bodies, our time or our money...not even this farm 🙂! We believe that the earth was lent to us by an awesome Creator and it doesn't belong to us as individuals to do with it as we please. It is not my right to mine our land destructively for resources, litter our land, waste our resources or squander our health. It is not my right to treat animals without care, love and compassion. In fact, did you know that we (Jews) are required, in the Torah (the Bible) to feed our animals before we feed ourselves? This is the level of service and responsibility we are called to and it is a message that we try to drive home to our children on a daily basis: Kindness and sacrificial love, "Ahavah," is the most important thing in life!There is a concept in Judaism called "Tikkun Olam": Repairing the world.

It's a concept that shouldn't just be for us, but for all of humanity - whether you believe in a higher power or not. It's not just about the earth itself, though this is a huge part of it. It's about repairing our communities, our environment and our souls and relationships. To not just have a "feeling" towards these things, but to live them out in action, every single day and with every decision of our lives.

So if you say that you "love" something, then you have just called yourself to action: to DO something for and about it - for to love something is to give yourself to it.

THIS is what our farm is called to. THIS is what our family is called to. THIS is what every member of our amazing farm crew and team are called to. WE are called to bring kindness, sacrifice, service and giving to our world, to our communities, to our earth and to our own bodies and health - it's the meaning and purpose of life: to serve and to love in a real and tangible way. This is the real meaning of the name "Ahavah Farm" and we are very proud of that mission and we hope you are too!

Our Pledge to You

Ahavah Farm is a Values-Centered-Farm and This is Our Pledge to You!

Farming is so much more than just growing calories. For us, it's about growing absolutely pure. About repairing our earth and caring for our resources. It is about putting love into our food, our employees, our animals and our community. Take a few minutes to read our public pledge here:

✔ We pledge to never compromise on the purity of our food.

By signing up to be a member of the Ahavah Farm CSA program, I am taking on a temporary and limited voting ownership of Ahavah Farm, LLC as an active partner and risk-taker in the farm. I understand that there are no refunds for this program, however, if there is a valid reason for cancelling the seasonal share, management will work with me to find a replacement for my share if needed - without guarantee. For hardship refunds (due to illness, life circumstances etc.) there is a minimum of a 30% refund fee (due to circumstances out of our control). As a member of this Community Supported Agricultural program, I understand that I am requested to be actively involved (but not required). As a member of Ahavah Farm, LLC, I understand the importance of community, the value in local agriculture and creating, supporting and investing in local, sustainable food systems (Ahavah Farm believes that the most important aspect to this program is the ability for individuals to know and trust their farmer and where their food is coming from). As a member I am declaring that I agree that supporting local agriculture is important to me and that I will be an involved member in the community and will do my best to support Ahavah Farm's mission and the community at large ("involved in the community" is vague and can mean anything from volunteering, involvement with and being active in the Facebook community group, spreading the word, coming to classes and events etc.).

I understand that a CSA program is a partnership program, and an investment in my health. As such, there are risks to supporting a local CSA program in that the yield may be smaller than anticipated (Ahavah Farm has never had a loss). I am also aware that if there is a bumper crop, my shares may be bigger (we have been able to succeed in this goal every season for 9 years). I understand that Ahavah Farm aims to provide an approximate value of 10% more food than the cost of my share. I also understand that by being a member of Ahavah Farm CSA, I am supporting the ultimate in ecological and environmental agriculture along with the funding and partnership with Ahavah Community Initiative to feed families in need and to spread the education of environmental agricultural stewardship to the community.


I understand that the CSA seasons are broken up into 4 seasons throughout the year and it is my responsibility to be aware of pickup dates, locations and program details as they have all been made available to me ahead of season start. I agree that Ahavah Farm has the right to adjust the delivery dates and schedules throughout the season with the full expectation that there be considerable notification ahead of time to allow for members to adjust their schedules as well (an example of this would be an emergency on the farm, weather interruptions, holidays or anything that could hinder the harvest and delivery of the crop).


Auto-renewal memberships save an automatic 5% every season, are automatically billed and registered until cancelled. Additional discounts for the auto-renewal program include: 10% discount on all resale items, 10% discount at Ahavah Farm Nurserry and Garden Center, 15% discount on microgreen CSA membership, 15% discount at Ahavah Farm Market Stand at Ahavah Community Market, 25% discount on all A&B level classes, free c-level classes, free tours, unlimited credit carryover.Cancellation for auto-renewal memberships must occur no later than than the regularly scheduled billing dates.  The dates for automatic billing will occur four times per year on the following dates:  February 15th, April 15th, August 15th and December 15th. 


I understand that all OFFICIAL communication and notices must come through e-mailas listed in the "Season Details" and that I will not use Facebook messenger, texting or voicemails as official communication (these are fine to use if not urgent, but they are not trackable and therefore we request that they not be used and will not be accepted as OFFICIAL communication because they are not often checked or monitored – especially our private social media messengers). I understand that as a member, I am requested (not obligated) to join the Facebook Community Group: “Ahavah Farm Community Group,” as this is an excellent tool for communication as well as for a fuller experience as a CSA member. I understand that all notifications, changes, updates, rules, exclusions, times, instructions and everything related to the program will be thoroughly communicated to me through the use of: E-mail, Ahavah Farm Community Group on Facebook and in person (pre-season meetings). I am responsible for receiving, tracking and monitoring these communications.


I also agree that my CSA subscription must be paid in full prior to the first delivery, is non-refundable and if the full amount is not paid prior to the first delivery my account may be canceled and all money paid will not be refunded to me and I will not receive any membership benefits.  Unpaid membership cancellations must be made in writing no later than the following dates prior to the upcoming season: February 15th, April 15th, August 15th and December 15th.  Payment plans are available and encouraged to help any and all members to afford their CSA membership. Payment plans can be customizable to your needs with some stipulations. Payment plans, discounts and other benefits can be made available to you upon request.

By Paying for my share I attest that I have read and understand the terms of the program and am excited to be a part of a community centered around the common purpose of community, sustainability and purity!

It's going to be a great year and we hope your season is a blessed one!❤️

We are so excited to have you as a member of our community and we are very excited for the upcoming season. We are a little behind, but we are optimistic that this year is going to be abundant as it already has been!

Our family, and our farm staff are committed to serving our local area the freshest, most nutrient-dense and environmentally responsible food possible. We want to be sure to offer our community as many opportunities that we can within our means and we ask that all of you come along side of us and make this community better, because without U doing what you can at the center, it's not C-O-M-M-U-N-I-T-Y! We implore our members to come along side us in this agriculture revolution to restore our lands and re-build our communities to their earth and their land. Help grow it, help volunteer, offer classes, joining our events, help feed your community by donating to ACI, and most of all, get to know us and don't be shy! We hope this CSA experience is a blessing for you and we hope you will take advantage of all we have to offer in the form of classes, articles, events, markets, donations and more!

We love you so much! Let's have an awesome season!💖
