What do you want in your CSA share?


When you sign up for our CSA at the link above you will be asked “What is the one item that you need to have in your CSA basket this season?”  We are still planning what we will plant.  You can help us choose our garden items.  I will tell you though, that we will not be growing bananas.  We had to make that clear so no one is disappointed.  When you tell us what you would like in your basket, try to stick to crops that can be produced in one season in central Nebraska.  Thanks for checking in with us and let us know what we can grow for you.


We are aiming to provide you with 20 weeks of produce from early June to late September (maybe even some early or late bonus weeks) for $200 but we will only sell 10 shares.  Make sure you order your share soon or you will miss out.

About GI Acres CSA

GI Acres is located on the western edge of Grand Island, Nebraska. The garden takes up about half of an acre. We also have chickens, rabbits and bees

Our farm is not USDA Certified Organic and we do not anticipate applying for such status. We strive to produce healthy vegetables using natural methods of fertilizing, building soil, and controlling pests such as insects and weeds. Those healthy vegetables will begin in mid to late May with herbs, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. During the season you can expect a variety of greens, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, squash, corn and potatoes along with tips about how to cook and preserve your weekly share. The season will conclude in late September or early October. We aim for a 20-week season.

We did not grow up on farms but we did grow up in families with large gardens, eating a variety of fresh produce and canning/freezing the excess. We have maintained the tradition of growing and preserving food for our family for the past 20+ years. GI Acres is our attempt to share that passion for good food with our community.
