Ela Family Farms’ Organic CSA fruit share
DU pick-ups at the Office of Sustainability, 1770 S. Williams St., Denver, CO
On Tuesdays 3pm-5pm
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. You will not be disappointed if we have to supplement an applesauce, jam, fruit butter or apple cider. We guarantee our fruit and that members receive the full value of their share. For more information about the fruit we grow and our artisan fruit products, visit www.elafamilyfarms.com.
