CSA Sunrise Ranch
Membership & Shares | 2018

Calling all locavores! If you’re interested in eating healthy, delicious food that is locally produced and you live in the Front Range area, we invite you to become a founding member of CSA Sunrise Ranch.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an alternative, locally based economic model of agriculture and food distribution. It’s an opportunity to come together with neighbors as part of a sustainable model of food supply. The CSA model is important to the return of a strong local food system. As a CSA member, you have the opportunity to get to know your farmer and the source of your food. Sunrise Ranch offers "shares" in the farm for sale to the local community based on each year’s growing season.

By joining a CSA (purchasing a share), members enter into a partnership with the farm, and they share in the bounty and risk of each season. CSA Sunrise Ranch members can feel confident that they are supporting their local economy, voting for the importance of local food and becoming a part of a very heart-felt community of people.

At Sunrise Ranch, we practice what we call Holistic Agriculture, which is a foundational principle for working with the land and raising plants and animals as a whole system in a healthy and natural way. Holistic agriculture looks at the whole picture rather than fragmenting the parts into separate systems.

Beyond USDA Organic Standards:

  • No chemical fertilizers
  • No chemical pesticides
  • No chemical herbicides
  • No added hormones
  • No antibiotics

Our approach and practices ensure that we are:

  • Increasing biodiversity and decreasing bare ground
  • Increasing the effectiveness of the water that falls on our land
  • Ensuring that minerals present in our soil are cycling into our ecosystem efficiently
  • Harvesting solar energy in our “living solar panel” of plant species in our pastures
  • Building soil and ecosystem health

We source all our veggie shares from the Sunrise Ranch greenhouses and outdoor garden. Our shares are available in Small, Medium and Large. Get on our sign-up sheet (call the number below) for Spring Shares, and we'll keep you posted about dates.

CSA Agreement

Before joining our CSA, we ask that our members read and commit to the following statements. This is the Farm Policy, and it is what keeps our CSA running smoothly, both for our members and the farm team.

  • I understand that I am committing to this share’s growing and production season at CSA Sunrise Ranch and will respect the parameters of being a CSA shareholder.
  • I understand that the farmers and producers will do their best to provide a season’s worth of fresh food goods.
  • I understand that I am sharing in the risks and challenges inherent to farming and that quantities and the timing of my share of the harvest may be affected by adverse weather events, specifically pertaining to fruit shares, for the length of my share.
  • I understand that CSA Sunrise Ranch’s products are produced sustainably, locally, and ethically, and beyond organic. The farm guarantees that my food goods will not be genetically modified, nor will it have been sprayed with chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Because of this, my food goods may contain a bug or two. Also, to promote storage and longevity, the farm does not wash my products prior to delivery. I will need to wash and inspect my goods before eating.
  • I understand that it is my responsibility to pick up my share at the designated time and location.
  • I understand that email is the primary method of communication from the farm, and I agree to open and read emails from the farm.
  • I understand that the success of the CSA and Sunrise Ranch depends on my continued commitment to support the farm throughout the 10 week (Spring Share) and 22-week (Summer Share) delivery season. Because of this, I understand that no refunds will be provided for shares.
