We’re Branching Out!

Summer Flower CSA Shares Available

We are excited to offer a flower CSA share for the first time. We are growing a variety of annuals and perennials including: sunflowers, gladiolas, zinnias, marigolds and much more. Instead of a box of veggies, you sign up and pay in advance to receive a beautiful mixed or single stem bouquet each week from July 6 through August 31. The bouquets will vary depending on what we are harvesting. Pick up your weekly bouquet at the American River Ranch on Wednesdays 8am to 8pm or during regular business hours on Thursdays, 8am to 5:30pm. $90 for nine weeks of beautiful summer flowers. Sign up >>

You can also purchase our organically-grown flowers on Saturdays at our Farmstand or the Midtown Farmers Market. For inquiries about flowers for special events or questions about our Flower Power program, contact Michele >>
