July through October
CLOSED ON SUNDAYS
The 2017 CSA membership contract is now available.. Middlefield Orchard offers a Winter CSA for both fresh and processed food, and for the regular season a fruit CSA, a vegetable CSA, and combination of fruit & vegetable CSA for the 2017 season. We look forward to serve you during the upcoming season.
Due to colder than usual weather this Spring, the orchard will be opening on Monday, July 3rd. We will be open on July 4th and our seasonal schedule will be Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.
The 2017 Seasonal CSA offerings are now available. You may sign-up anytime in April, May or early June. The sign-up form can be downloaded at the bottom of our CSA page. The CSA offerings start on Saturday, June 24th. Enjoy fresh, wholesome and flavorful locally grown fruits and vegetables.
We are once again offering the Rent-a-Tree program for the 2017 season. With a significant loss of our apple crop the last two years due to weather related issues this program was cancelled. Hopefully, this year we can make it through. If you or your family eat a lot of apples or process any apple products this is by far the least expensive way to go.
Farm Safety Plan
A Farm Safety Plan is now implemented for any and all visitors to the orchard to enhance the safety of all concerned. Hand washing stations and instructions are easily located for your convenience.

CSA Customer comment:"The Middlefield Orchard CSA is a way to provide healthy food for your family while supporting our local farmers and region. All the produce and fruits are fresh, sweet and flavorful. Favorites of ours are the blueberries, rasberries and strawberries. Our family enjoys going out to the farm and hand-picking the raspberries, apples and pumpkins. Nate and I have done the math, and for the amount of produce and goods we receive it would be more than twice that at the store- and likely grown outside of our country and months old. You can bet we will be back for another summer and winter CSA again this year. Nate and Suzanne Furman
