Ela Family Farms’ Organic CSA fruit share
DU Student pick-ups at the Office of Sustainability, 1770 S. Williams St., Denver, CO
On Tuesdays 3pm-5pm
Start your school year off right with a weekly organic fruit share! Ela Family Farms is a fourth generation, certified organic orchard on the Western Slope of Colorado. Experience sweet, juicy 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 CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a great way to support local agriculture while getting superior produce. It’s a direct relationship with your farmer where CSA members share in the risks and realities of farming. In return, we strive to bring you the best fruit that you will eat all year. Getting fruit directly from a farm allows us to let the fruit hang a little longer and pick it at its peak of flavor. We guarantee our fruit and that members receive the full value of their share. For more information about the fruit we grow and our 100 year history, visit www.elafamilyfarms.com.
