What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture - a direct partnership between farmers and communities. Before the start of each growing season, CSA shareholders pay for a full season worth of vegetables. By doing so, they help provide the farmer with necessary capital to buy seeds, build soil, and pay their own wages. Through CSA programs, farmers are ensured a steady market regardless of seasonal or weather fluctuations. CSA members benefit by receiving a full share of fresh vegetables every week at below retail market value. While we always plan a fruitful harvest season, part of being a CSA member is sharing in both the risks (like pests) and rewards (like endless fall greens) that are inherent to small scale organic farming. Every week CSA members have the opportunity to talk and connect with the farmers at pick-up, where they are available to answer questions, give recipe advice, and give you the lowdown on what we’ve been up to.
HOW IT WORKS:
Sign up through our online form, pay at the start of the season, and enjoy fresh local produce all summer long.
The CSA runs 18 weeks beginning the third week of June and ending the last week of October. The first Monday pickup is June 19th. The first Thursday pickup is June 15th.
