Seasons in the Sun Farm is a small, family-owned farm located in Spanish Fort, Baldwin County, Alabama. We are
committed to producing and providing fresh foods, free of chemicals and preservatives, for our customers. We offer a CSA program
or Community Supported Agriculture. As a CSA Farm, we offer customers a healthy, convenient alternative to purchasing
processed food from grocery stores. Seasons in the Sun follows organic growing guidelines and grows many of our
fruits and vegetables hydroponically in greenhouses as well as field farming.
As a CSA customer, you receive weekly
baskets full of fruits and vegetables, butter, cheeses, eggs, honey, fresh baked bread, fresh cut flowers and more. Other
add-on items such as organic meats and fish can also be purchased. We provide free home delivery to those who live close
to the farm and free farm pickup for all other members on Fridays from 9am until 6pm.
We take enormous pride in creating
our products and hope that you'll find something that you like. In addition to CSA baskets, we also can create custom orders;
call or email and let us know what you want. We look forward to having you come visit us at the farm.
Seasons in the Sun is a Community Supported Agricultural farm. CSA farmers are dedicated to sustainable
food production. Individuals interested in supporting the local farmer would historically, offer to buy a share
of a farmer's yield. That share covered either the spring or fall growing season. The purchased share was paid up front before
planting. Most shares were for a twenty week period and cost between $600 or $1500 depending upon the farmer. This enabled
the farmer to plan ahead, purchase his supplies,and have a guaranteed outlet for his product. Nowadays, CSA farms don't specifically
sell a share of their yield. Instead, our CSA customers receive a weekly basket filled with 6-12 types of fruits and
vegetables, enough for a family of 2 to 6 people, depending on the basket size. Other products we offer include eggs,
breads, flowers, honey and extras (such as homemade seasonings, meat rubs, jams/jellies, and bath and body products) depending
upon the week. We also have Add Ons when those things are available.
Customers that join a
CSA not only receive healthy produce, but find a meaningful way to reunite with the land, and support the local farming community.
It can also be a teaching tool for children to visit the farm and see how their food is grown or visit with the farm animals.
Our farm includes hydroponic, aquaponics, and field farming, raised beds gardens, as well as many farm animals and even
a garden center. We love to show children around and tell them all about what we do here. We are committed to our family and
community and hope to get people involved in making healthy food choices.
