What is a CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. This is a partnership between farmers and their communities. When members purchase a CSA share ahead the growing season, they pledge their support upfront and provide the funds that are needed to plan, sed and maintain our crops throughout the season. While members share risks of independent agriculture, they reap even greater rewards in the form of fresh, healthful harvest throughout the season. CSA members pick up a diverse assortment of fresh, nutritious vegetables each week (or bi-weekly), and in doing so they have the opportunity to connect with local food production and experience the changing seasons of our farm.
What does a CSA membership include? Your membership includes weekly (or bi-weekly) seasonal produce. To view what types of produce you can expect throughout the season, click here.
