Is Miller Plant Farm an organic producer?
At Miller Plant Farm we go to great lengths to determine the least amount of protectants and fertilizer to apply in order to achieve both the highest quality and an affordable product while staying environmentally friendly. We employ a scout to help us detect potential disease and insect problems. If a situation occurs that warrants action, control measures are taken in a safe and timely manner. In the fall of the year Miller Plant Farm samples the soil in each individual field on the farm where vegetables will be grown. From this test we are able to determine the nutrient needs for a particular crop for the next growing season. The planting of cover crops is also done to help build up the soil and prevent erosion. We work, live, and raise our families on our farm and feed our families with our fresh, delicious produce, as we have for six generations.

How did CSA originate?
It may be unclear just exactly where CSA was started, but many sources point to a group of Japanese women in the '60's who were concerned about careless use of pesticides, processed foods, and diminishing local food sources. These women connected with local food growers that they could trust and the CSA concept was born!

We strongly urge members to pick up on your assigned pick up day, but if that is simply not possible please contact our store at 717-741-2631 during business hours. The share will be the same that was prepared for you on your pick up day due to labor and time involved in packing CSA shares.
