What Is A CSA?

CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. Developed in the 1960’s in Japan, CSA programs are designed to build a relationship between the farmer and community. Members (that’s you) buy shares in the farms output before the season starts, and then reap the benefits of the harvest each week as the season progresses. CSA members agree to share in the fluctuation and variations inherent in farming, and understand that their produce will be grown with organic, sustainable farming practices. Members are, in essence, shareholders in the farm, thus becoming invested in its successes and failures. This joint venture allows the farmer to receive capital before the season starts when they need it most and allows them to be in the field during the growing season instead of worrying about selling their produce. 

There are other benefits to supporting local farms and CSA programs.

As consumers, we have become accustomed to buying fruits and vegetables shipped from all over the world, regardless of the season. This is a waste of resources and energy. This also means that food is harvested before it has ripened in order to make the journey. This long journey sacrifices the nutritional value and flavor of the produce. By choosing locally grown food, you ensure that you are eating the freshest, most nutrient dense and best tasting food possible and being environmentally responsible at the same time while supporting your local farm.

Each member will enjoy a weekly or bi-weekly share of fresh, organically grown fruits, vegetables, herbs and fresh prepared foods (depending on availability). Our carefully selected varieties and organic growing practices bring out the very best in flavor and nutrition. Produce is harvested when it is ripe, just before you receive it. Members can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything is grown organically on our USDA Certified Organic Farm. We never use chemicals, synthetic pesticides or herbicides on any of our crops.

We will send out newsletters throughout the harvest season, filled with updates, recipes, sales and stories from the farm. Members can also look forward to exclusive CSA farm tours and opportunities to volunteer and learn about how their food is grown. We want our members to have a true understanding of our farm and how their food is grown. We are growing for you!

We offer weekly (12) or bi-weekly (6) summer CSA shares. And what is in your weekly or bi-weekly CSA share all depending on what is harvested that week but it will be quite a bounty of amazing foods. As a matter of fact, it is almost 3/4 Bushel of the freshest Certified Organic produce every week or every other depending on what you chose. And you get all this for about $40 a week.
