Hello everyone,

We are sold out of our 2017 CSA shares! If you are still looking for a CSA this summer, we have put together a list of Farms that do CSA pick up locations in the Denver area. (fruit csa) 

All these farms have CSA pick ups at several Denver locations. 

You can still purchase add-on shares from our website through the month of April. Shares still available are eggs, fruit, mushrooms and our new fermentation share. Please use the member portal to update your share types from our homepage.You must already be a member with us to purchase the additional shares.

Dear Supporting Shareholders,

In gratitude for your support of our expanding and exciting outreach programs we'll be putting together a box for you. The box will include, but is not limited to:

hakurei turnips
kubocha squash
dried hot peppers
head lettuce

Tuesday shareholders: since the gardens close early now there isn't a great spot to pick up at York St. so we'll be DELIVERING yours. Please send me an email confirming your correct address, and on Tuesday, Nov. 15 you'll be getting a box delivered right to your door (or side porch, or whatever your preference is, just do note if you do have a preference!)

Thursday shareholders: we'll have you pick up here at the normal location on Thursday November 17 BUT we'll have expanded hours, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

You won't be picking up your turkey on this day - you will pick up your turkey Sunday, November 20th. More information will be out soon about that.

Dear Shareholders,

The email reminder you received last night was an outdated automatic message that should have been turned off. There is no pick up today, sorry for any confusion!

I will take this opportunity to also ask you to fill out our CSA Survey so we can improve on what we do! 
After you complete this survey - send us an email and you will be entered to win a CSA goody basket!

Dear Shareholders,

This is not goodbye--just "see you next spring"! The first time back in the produce section at a grocery store is a difficult experience--just a caution for those first-time shareholders out there.

What at first had seemed a challenge--getting a box of vegetables all at once and figuring out what to do with them--becomes, as the season progresses, a huge benefit. You realize how easy it is to eat seasonally, and you have an answer to the timeless question, "What's for dinner tonight?" With a CSA, it's much easier to build meals around what has been harvested and picked up. 

I won't even get into the flavor issue of grocery store produce....Alas, it is a hard transition, so I wanted to warn you.

Renewal Timeline:

For those wanting to renew their shares, we will have a purchase link on our website starting January 9. You will have the whole month of January to renew your existing membership.

Starting in February, we will sell shares to our wait-listed folks.
If you know someone who would like to purchase a Chatfield Farms CSA share, please refer them to our homepage at

Supporting Shareholder Delivery/Pick-up
For Tuesday supporting shareholders, we will deliver a box of Thanksgiving veggies and herbs to your door on November 15. If you are a Thursday shareholder we will have pick-up at the farm from 2-7 p.m.

Volunteer Party Invitations - 

Invitations to the annual volunteer party will be sent out this coming Monday. Please attend so we can say thanks to all our volunteers for a great season! We couldn't do it without you!

FINAL Gleaning Day - November 5, 10 a.m. - noon
Items that are not under straw or fabric will be up for grabs! We will send out an additional email about what crops you potentially can harvest on this day.

Thanks for a great season!

Hello everyone!
For your warmth and comfort, we moved our first yoga class inside today. It will start at 4 p.m. in the schoolhouse. The schoolhouse is a very peaceful and comfortable building, perfect for yoga! You can park in the main lot, do the yoga class and then go pick up your veggies. Jackie welcomes all experience levels - so even if you have never done yoga before, you are welcome to join. The class fee is a suggested donation of $5 - $10. There will be a chalk board outside so you know where to go.

If we have enough interested folks, we will run these classes till the end of distributions, and hopefully continue next year! See you there!
