CSA Stands For Community Supported Agriculture
CSA is a weekly subscription to a season’s worth of sustainable, locally grown produce that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting season. CSA members enjoy the quality of fresh fruits and vegetables each week, while supporting their local farmer.
Getting food from a CSA is different from going to a grocery store or using a box store delivery service. Your produce is picked the very day you pick it up, at the height of it's natural season, ensuring the absolute best quality and nutritional value possible for you and your family. No extra packaging, transport, or time wasted.
Members share in the inherent risks and rewards of agriculture!
As a CSA member, you make a seasonal commitment to us, and in turn we make a commitment to you. CSA members take pleasure in knowing where and how their food is grown, and have an open line of communication with us. It is our goal to actively teach our members how to use the food they receive each week.

*CSA Tip- when CSA begins, you'll receive a Handbook that explains how to eat seasonally and how to store your produce!
When does the CSA season begin?
CSA starts the week of June 6, 2023 and culminates the week of October 26, 2023. CSA runs 21 consecutive weeks.
What can I expect in my weekly share?
Your share is determined by seasonality and will be different each week.
You can expect plenty of greens and cool weather crops during June, followed by a wider variety of fruits and veggies in the summer months. In September/October, we'll have a mix of late summer crops and early fall squashes, as well as local apples.
*CSA Tip - The first couple of weeks will seem a little "lighter", so we add value to your share with items such as our local Honey!
