We would like to invite you to join our 2018 CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) Program and be offered the opportunity to join in the potential risks and rewards that can entail from farming in the Pacific Northwest. We would like to show our local community what the surrounding Mt. Hood area can provide through hard-work, dedication, and commitment. All three of these being provided by the farmers and yourself, the members
We're looking to create a symbiotic relationship with our members and to come together as a community and as neighbors. We understand that farming comes with inherent risks and some of these risks are unforeseeable. We also understand that farming most often leads to an over abundance of goods, given the right situation.
At Bearly Farms, we want to grow with our community and to understand our members, just as we encourage our members to be involved and understand the farm. Our intention is to have as transparent of a business as possible, allowing our members to know and understand our gardening techniques, our current and future plans for the farm, and for our members to have a say in where the farm might direct its future goals. We hope for this endeavor to lead us to closer connections to our community and ultimately make food more readily available for our little part of the world.
