  2014 Ela Family Farms’ Organic Fruit CSA Share

Enjoying Colorado fruit in-season is one of life’s simple pleasures. Ela Family Farms looks forward to sharing our fruit harvest with you through the Denver Botanic Garden CSA share.

Our fruit share offers 80 lbs of organic fruit over 12 weeks and suits a family of 2-4. We let our fruit ripen on the tree a little longer, striving to bring you the best tasting fruit you will enjoy all season! As you know, Mother Nature is ultimately in charge.

If we have a crop loss or shortage, we will substitute the full retail value of the fruit with our organic artisan fruit products or another fruit. We guarantee our fruit and that CSA members receive the full retail value of their share.
