Our Farm Share Photos

I love to take photos of our work! The following photos are simply random CSA farm share boxes where we dumped out the vegetables and snapped a photo of before repacking it and sending it on its way. These photos were taken over the entire harvest season—which on our farm runs from mid-May through October. Note the variety we provide in each box! Note the size of the individual vegetables! We are growing seasonal gourmet vegetables to please our palates and yours!

On our Cane Creek Valley family farm, Robert and I have been growing vegetables for nearly thirty years. We have over twenty years CSA farming experience as Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA growing for families in Fairview, Fletcher, Asheville, Biltmore, Arden and the greater Buncombe County and Henderson County areas of WNC. As early adapters to internet marketing, our domain name is CaneCreekCSA—a shortened name suitable for internet marketing.

Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA begins the harvest season with spring greens. We earn all of our farm income through our CSA Farm Share direct marketing model. No tailgate markets or wholesale markets or roadside stands!

Of course, each harvest season is different; but with over twenty years of CSA farming experience, Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA has experience in how to work with the pests, and weeds, and everything else Nature throws our way!

Make no mistake—these are photos of vegetable boxes we have sent out in our CSA Farm Share boxes. No photo shop pictures for this family farm! We love to show off the results our work produces at Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA. Robert and I would love to share with you this harvest season.  

The family who joins a CSA by purchasing a farm share must be one who loves a large variety of veggies and is willing to experiment with new things. The family who loves the idea of healthy eating and getting a surprise box of veggies harvested fresh daily is one who will enjoy the bounty of Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA.  Take a few minutes to read what our members say!

For the more than twenty years Robert and I have operated our CSA Farm, we have never required advance payment from our CSA Members! Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA only requires your commitment to purchasing our CSA Boxes for the entire local season—and we will earn your trust box by box, vegetable by vegetable. Our CSA farming business is based on trust!

We provide a Vegetable Identification Pages and Recipes and suggestions for preparation of everything we put into your CSA Box at Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA. And if you want to freeze any of your vegetables, we tell you how to do that, too. See the Recipe Pages under “F” for Freezing Vegetables.

Joining Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA provides a way for our family farm to be an economically viable business.  While it is true we have a passion for what we do— we have bills to pay just like everyone else.

If you are one who would prefer to eat vegetables from our CSA Box versus performing the labor yourself, please join our CSA now.  Mid-season shares may be available!

Each CSA is different. At Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA, we have worked hard to consistently maintain our stellar reputation of providing only quality veggies for our members. It is true some will attempt to imitate us, but few will succeed in matching our exacting standards and our level of customer service!

Know your farmer. Know his practices. Know what he provides his members—by reputation. Look at the vegetables he has actually provided—year after year. Robert and I offer photos of our past boxes to provide you the information necessary to make an informed decision when it comes to purchasing a CSA Farm Share!

Experience counts in any business!!  Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA recommends you thoroughly research the farm differences before you sign up to purchase any farm share.

If these photos of our various CSA Baskets provided throughout the season are making your mouth water and if the journey of local harvest eating is something you want to try, then please check our Frequently Asked Questions, and join our CSA.

We will get back to you right away with a Welcome Email so you know we have you listed as a member of our CSA and have a Farm Share reserved for your family with Cane Creek Asparagus & Company CSA!
