WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK?
Sorry, we do not hold shares for weeks when you go out of town, but you may send a colleague or family member to pick-up your share. Better yet, have them join too and you can trade off pick up days. The more the merrier! If you miss, your fruit will be donated. click here for a seasonal fruit harvest calendar graphic

About Us and Your CSA
Enjoy the best of Colorado fruit season with fourth generation fruit growers Ela Family Farms! Experience juicy tree-ripened peaches, crispy apples, succulent pears and fresh apple cider in the fall. We grow over 20 varieties of apples, so each apple week is unique.
Keep in mind that a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, is a direct relationship with your grower where members share in the risks and realities of farming. Our mantra is that we only share what we grow. If we have a shortage of fruit due to light crops, we will substitute the promised amount, dollar for dollar, with our processed goods or another fruit. We guarantee our fruit and that members receive the full value of their share. You will not be disappointed if we have to supplement an applesauce, jam, fruit butter or apple cider, all made from the fruit we grow.
