We have been CSA members with Godshall Farm for 8 years now and we love the cleanliness, quality, selection and availability of their produce, flowers, meat, and prepared foods. Steve and Nicole really listen and pay attention to their customers and go out of their way to meet their needs and special requests." Thank you! :)

Being a member of the Godshall CSA is important to me in so many ways. It gives me the opportunity to "eat fresh, eat local", support a small business and a young family, and interact with a family who are raising their children with a sense of social responsibility. The business is conducted with a high degree of integrity and the quality of the offerings can't be beat.

This season was fantastic. The prepared food was a huge bonus, and the payment system, incredible amount of choice was wonderful. The eggs being included as a choice was also a big bonus. Loved having the plants included as well. Can't say enough good things about this year! Love being able to use CSA bucks for the roadside stand. Several times in the past I didn't use the stand because I didn't have cash or the right amount of cash. Also really appreciated the other farm products being sold at the CSA. Helped cut down on things I would need to buy at the supermarket.
We focus on growing crops that are the most popular and profitable to enable us to make a living solely from our farm. We follow organic standards(not certified) to grow all of our products including plants, pasture our animals and feed them local organic feed. No nuts and seeds are used in our kitchen/prepared foods. Our farm is unique because our entire property is 1.9 acres.  This is a micro size farm.  It doesn't get much smaller. No one else in the Lehigh Valley is making a living solely from farming on this size acreage.  We don't compare what we can accomplish with other farms because it is so completely different.  We ask our members to do the same.
Our local food club can accomodate most of our member's lifestyles.  They purchase a credit in the beginning of the season and become a member.  Members can use their credit at our pickups from May through December, Tuesday through Thursday from 12:30 to 6:30 and Friday 9-12. When the pick up is not open, they can use the credit at our roadside stand.  We will also be offering a roadside stand option this year, for customers who don't often have cash or exact change. Our members are free to come whatever day they want or not come as they please. We have 4 different sign up levels.  If you run out of credit you can add more, but we ask that you use it up by the end of the season.  Our members do self check out online at our e-commerce store.
Another huge issue is one of vegetable preference convenience and choices.  Our members can pick up what they need for the week, not pick up at all and have a choice of eggs, flowers, prepared food, vegetables, poultry and pork from our farm. We realize how busy our members are with work and family activities, but they would still like to eat healthy on the run.  Last Winter we put a kitchen at our farm so we can provide ready to eat foods that are made from scratch using local products.  Carrots and salad mix are naturally convenient and favorites of kids and grown ups, therefore we try to produce them continuously. We buy in items we can't grow such as fruit, corn, mushrooms, dairy and bread.After all the changes, we are changing the name of our CSA to local food club
If you ask a lot of people, they will tell you they would like to save farm land or support small family farmers.  One way to do that is to join a CSA or go to farmers' markets, but most people don't do it or they don't even know what, when or where it is. 
We completely restructured the way we offer our CSA to make it more convenient and modernized. After many years of surveying our members and asking people the problems with CSA's, we have come up with a different way to offer our products to members. One of the most basic problems is that there is a standardized box that may contain up to an inch of dirt in the bottom.  We can't remove every piece of dirt, but we try to get our vegetables as sparkly as possible.
