How It All Started
In 2019, Donna and Waylon purchased a 14-acre homestead in Eros, Louisiana. Upon purchasing it, they knew immediately what their mission would be, to use the land to produce farm fresh, delicious, and nutritious food. Food that would feed their friends, family, and community for years to come. When they began searching for a name, Waylon suggested DeLaTerre Permaculture Farm. A phrase that, quite literally, meant “of the earth.” The objective of the farm? To produce humanely raised animals, using regenerative grazing practices, and naturally grown fruits and vegetables, avoiding the use of harmful chemicals. To date, that is EXACTLY what the farm has accomplished. DeLaTerre is growing food the way nature intended!
Rolling Out Summer CSA
Donna and Waylon would like to be your farmers and are inviting you to subscribe to their Summer CSA. What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between a farmer and the community. The CSA program is a type of “cooperative,” where a community member (customer), pays a subscription fee at the beginning of the growing season in exchange for a full season of “cream of the crop” produce, eggs & meat selections, a “share.” The items in your weekly share are then boxed and delivered to convenient pick-up locations in Monroe, West Monroe, Campti, Natchitoches and Ruston. The CSA model creates a direct connection between farmers and consumers.
DeLaTerre Permaculture Farm’s Summer CSA subscription will run for 12 weeks, from the week of July 13th through October 2nd, 2021. There are three different types of CSA boxes to choose from this season. Customers can choose from either a veggie box, a veggie and egg box or a veggie, chicken and egg box. Each box will contain at least 8 seasonal, freshly picked produce items. DeLaTerre Permaculture Farm is accepting pre-orders for the summer CSA boxes now. You won’t want to miss out on this amazing opportunity to have farm fresh, nutritious and delicious food from your local farmers!
