Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
A yummy, creative opportunity to be a member of our farm!
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” A CSA is a partnership between a local farm and the community. Individuals or families purchase a “share” from the farm and are provided with weekly, fresh, seasonal produce .
Our CSA is a program in which members - individuals, families, or partners (friends, co-workers, neighbors) - receive both a weekly share of locally & sustainably grown produce AND the opportunity to glean hands-on experience in the field.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A family, individual, or group purchases a CSA share for the season, becoming a Member of the farm.
As a Member, you pick up your share of fresh, seasonal, local produce once a week (June-October).
Members volunteer in the field at least twice per season providing the necessary foundation for a growing community.
CSA BENEFITS :
Vibrant, ripe, nutritious produce
Support for local farmers and the local economy
