Apple Valley, MN CSA Near Me
We get it! Food is getting stupidly expensive these days. Just look at this report. According to a CNBC story, the typical American family is spending $445 more a month due to food price inflation. Not only are food prices rising, growing a traditional garden can be a major time suck as well as difficult. MEG’s has a solution for you. We have developed a different type of CSA located right in your town of Apple Valley, Minnesota. Instead of having to drive to local farms with traditional CSA setups, MEG will bring the CSA to your doorstep via a delivery service. If you’d like to skip the reading and go straight to the CSA information, check out the basic CSA or premium CSA. Sign up for a CSA here.
What’s in an Apple Valley, MN CSA?
So what’s an Apple Valley CSA anyways? CSA stands for community supported agriculture. MEG’s Edible Landscapes is taking this concept 100 steps further and has successfully flipped the traditional CSA business model on its head. Now, you can have your plants and eat them too! Ah, see what we just did there? We have developed a CSA model that allows you to pick your plants, grow them on site, and it’s all done with an automated system. You don’t have to worry about weeding, digging, or any other problems commonly associated with the traditional garden.
MEG’s Edible Landscapes
MEG’s Edible Landscapes is a plant nursery wholly devoted to your success in growing food at home! We’re located in Dennison, MN overlooking the majestic Sogn Valley. All of our plants are started and grown here and use as many inputs as humanly possible from Minnesota. Did you know we use local compost and aged Minnesota pine bark? We strive to use as many locally-sourced inputs as possible to grow edible plants. It just makes plain sense. We’ve never really seen the sense in shipping all of the inputs into a product halfway around the globe. The last two years haven’t also shown what can happen when locally sourced inputs are not available. Someone say toilet paper crisis! Boom!

How we’re a different Apple Valley CSA
Have you ever been a CSA member and were captive to what was grown on the farm? Did you have any input into what you got for that weeks share box? Do you dislike tomatoes yet somehow ended up with a massive box of tomatoes from your local farm? Do you just love to travel to a farm every Thursday afternoon to pick up your produce while you’re holding your two school-age children with? We’re intimately aware and familiar with all these problems with traditional CSA’s. This is why we’ve taken steps to solve these problems with our new plant CSA. Instead of you having to travel to the farm to pick up the produce, the farm is going to come to your doorstep.
We guarantee all of our plans for 30 days. With our automated system, we guarantee our plants from seed to seed. This means that a plant, if coupled with our automated watering system, is guaranteed to complete its lifecycle. For instance, this means a tomato plant will produce tomatoes. If for some reason there is a problem or issue, will rectify the problem or will replace the plants.
