Rootbound Farm

We are excited to be a 2017 pick up location for Rootbound Farm's Community Support Agriculture (CSA) program! 

The program will run June-October and you'll receive a weekly box of local certified organic produce all season long.  It’s a great way to invest in your health and our local economy. As a member you have access to the highest quality, most nutrient dense food you can find anywhere, often times it’s harvested the same day you pick it up!  There are small and full size shares available so there’s a right size for everyone.  

The pickup at BAREfit will be on Thursday afternoons from 4pm-7pm.  Other pickups are available throughout Louisville and more details can be found at their website http://rootboundfarm.com

Testimonials:

“Our Rootbound Farm CSA has been the best choice we've ever made for healthy, wholesome food. We get excited every week when we open the box and pull out the treasures inside. Just as people who live near the ocean can't find good seafood inland, I'm afraid we are ruined for supermarket produce forever.”  Carol, CSA member 2016

"My wife and I love getting the full share. We cook at home 5-6 nights a week and typically go through the whole share. Not having to go to the grocery and  have the CSA veggies dictate meals for us makes planning what to eat in a week way easier." - David and Jessica, CSA members with two adults in the household
