COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
SAVE 5% by joining before JAN. 31***
What is CSA?Community Supported Agriculture engages farmers and community members in a mutually beneficial relationship, providing financial resources and security to the farmer, and nourishing food and relationships to the member. At the beginning of the growing season, individuals and families pay in advance for a share of the farm’s produce for the season. To arrive at the cost, we multiply the average value of the weekly share by the number of weeks in the season. Each week, members pick up their CSA basket at a designated time and location.
Why is CSA good for our farm?When you purchase a share, you pledge your support to our farm so we can buy things like seeds, fix equipment, pay our employees, etc. Furthermore, farming is risky business due to weather, disease, pests, changes in market conditions, and more. When you buy into our farm for a season, you help spread the risk, but also the rewards.
Why is CSA good for members?CSA gives members access to truly nourishing food: organically and locally grown, nutritious, delicious, and fresh. What’s more, CSA directly connects you with your farmer, with the land, and with a community full of neighbors who have similar values. A CSA pick up is a great place to make friends and to learn new recipes. Finally, CSA is a great opportunity to financially support and put into practice some of the causes that you care about: stewardship of the land and the life it supports, a healthy local food economy, and the success of small farmers.

EARLY SEASON (Apr - Sept) or LATE SEASON (Jul - Nov)
EARLY SEASON is a good choice if you want all the spring greens, strawberries, and summer vegetables, but find yourself with limited time to cook in the fall.
LATE SEASON is a good choice if you prefer to start with the common summer veggies and experience the comforting flavors of the fall harvest.
