Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture memberships, also referred to as CSA’s, are gaining popularity nationwide. Our CSA is a program that provides members 20 weekly boxes of the season’s best produce. The CSA is the most economical way to get a wide selection of the season’s bounty. Members purchase shares at the beginning of the year, providing us with the funds to buy seeds and supplies and to pay our crew to get the season underway. In return, our members get a weekly selection of fruits and vegetables at a lower price. It is a delicious and mutually beneficial program!
Each week, the CSA boxes change to reflect what is locally fresh on our farm. The program offers the opportunity to truly “eat with the seasons” and to experiment with a rainbow of produce. In addition, you will nourish your health, expand your palate and improve your cooking skills. CSA boxes can be tailored to your preferences by adding on extras or by omitting certain items.
Purchasing high quality, locally grown food benefits our entire community. Becoming a CSA member helps you cultivate a relationship to your food and the soil that it comes from. The connection to your farmers and to the land that produces your food provides a deeper understanding of healthy food, its production, and the interdependence of all involved.
