Community-Supported Agriculture Brings Fresh Produce to the Table

Community-supported agriculture delivers fresh produce around Grand Junction, Colorado

Cameron Place Community-Supported Agriculture provides more than 150 families and restaurants with organically grown fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers across the Grand Valley. For an annual subscription, the five-acre garden in Palisade offers local homes and businesses a weekly allotment of fresh, just-picked produce. Subscribers take on some risk of lost crops or reward of bumper crops, and the farm gets a guaranteed revenue stream. 

Cameron Place offers several pick-up locations or subscribers can go directly to the farm for their weekly allotment. Customers enjoy being closer to the source and having the option of hand-picking fresh herbs from the community garden. The Palisade farm yields ripe strawberries, sweet cherries, fresh cabbage, broccoli, baby gold turnips, bok choy, patty pan squash, zucchini, arugula and garlic. 

The Cameron Place Community-Supported Agriculture program gardens also offer unique produce, such as garlic scapes. These fresh green shoots are thinned from the garlic bed and have a bracing fresh-garlic bite that's great chopped into stir fries or salad dressing. Grab a produce bin and join the many Grand Valley locals getting their fill of nutritious produce.
