CSA, short for Community Supported Agriculture is a local produce box direct from the farmer to you! It brings together community members and farmers in a relationship of mutual support based on a commitment to one another. Before the season begins, CSA members invest in a “share” of the farm harvest. Each week of the season, CSA members receive a weekly bag of fresh vegetables and an email newsletter with storage tips and recipe ideas, as well as news from the farm and invitations to farm gatherings and events. CSA is a partnership - assuring the farmer a prepaid local market for the crops and providing members with the first and best the farm has to offer.
This shared commitment helps ensure the survival of small farms, a local food supply, and agricultural land in our county. CSA is about supporting the local economy and learning to eat in season. It’s about joining together with neighbors who are committed to the health of our bodies, our community, and our land.
Our farm grows over 40 different kinds of vegetables, fruits and herbs. You will receive plenty of familiar standards accented by less common vegetables that maybe you have never tried before. That’s part of the fun!
