COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

OUR CERTIFIED ORGANIC FARM SHARE PROGRAM

What is a CSA - Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture or CSA, is a simple idea in which a person or family becomes a member of our farm by purchasing a farm share. This farm share consists of fruits and vegetables specially harvested for the CSA at the peak of freshness each week for 20 weeks. Buying  a share and paying before the season starts, gives the farm a revenue stream at a time when it is needed most, to purchase seeds, potting mix, and other equipment to start farming in the spring. 
 
Our Share Sizes.
Full Share - This share is geared towards a family of four or a couple that enjoys lots of vegetables at most meals. It will include 7 to 10 items based on what is seasonally available. 
Half Share - This share  is geared towards single people who eat lots of vegetables at most meals, couples, or those with a backyard garden just looking to supplement. It will include 4 to 6 items based on what is seasonally available. 
 
What You Will Receive. 
You will receive an individual box of fresh, delicious produce each week in a fun and inviting atmosphere. The vegetables will vary as the season progresses but each week there will be a newsletter with recipes and information about what is in your Share. Go to our Instagram page and see what was in the share in previous seasons (amounts of individual items is not exact in the picture).
 
Why Join A CSA?
If you like fresh fruits and vegetables that taste fabulous and cannot be found in the grocery store, a CSA may be right for you. If you want to know who, how and sometimes why your food is grown, join a CSA. This is a direct investment in local agriculture and the farm families that live around you all while preserving your community's rural character. This is truly a system based on community, where you can interact with your neighbors about food, share recipes, ideas and experiences. It is a chance to have fun with your food, be adventurous with your cooking and taste something new.
 
Please do your research before joining a CSA, do not be afraid to ask questions to make sure it is right for you and your family.
