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 farmers market or using a grocery delivery service. 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 is perfect for people interested in:
investing in food security;
preparing healthy foods for their families;
supporting their local farmer;
being kind to our planet;
trying new kinds of veggies;
being adventurous in the kitchen.
*CSA Tip- when CSA begins, you'll receive an awesome Handbook that explains how to eat seasonally and store your produce!
When does the CSA season begin?
(New For 2021!) Our NEW 22-week CSA season begins June 1, 2021 and culminates October 28, 2021.
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!
