We are a collaborative of FOUR small, local farms who work together to deliver the best of High Country agriculture to you.
The mission of the High Country CSA is to produce socially and ecologically responsible food through collaboration between small farms in the High Country.
we envision a local food system which mutually benefits the farmers, the ecosystem and the community.
