Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Wholesome Harvest Farm?

We are a small, certified organic farm in Fort Atkinson, WI operated by Chris and Lisa Zastrow, a husband and wife team.  Together with our extended family and valued employees we run a CSA, market stands and care for our pasture raised cows, hogs and chickens. 

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA embodies the concept of connecting the farm, crops, and farmer directly to the consumer. You are sharing in the rewards of a farmer’s labor as well as a part of the risks associated with farming. When joining a CSA, you are purchasing a share, or portion, of the crops that the farm and farmer produce. You will receive your share weekly throughout the growing season delivered to your choice of pick up site. Our main growing season is 20 weeks long.  You will receive a wide variety of crops throughout the course of a growing season and as the seasons change, so do the crops you receive.


What are the benefits of CSA?

The benefits of CSA to local agriculture and the local economy are profound. The average produce item in a grocery store travels over 1300 miles and through a list of warehouses and shipping yards. That is a boatload of money being sent out of the country, or at least out of state, for each vegetable that we consume. Our farm could not survive without the CSA concept and the support of all of our members and their commitment to supporting us and our shared local economy.


What about holidays?

Shares are delivered as scheduled throughout the season, including holiday weeks.  If you will be away and cannot pickup please make arrangements with a friend or family member to pick up your share.  It is your responsibility to be sure they are versed in the pick-up procedure at your given site.
