Community Supported Agriculture or CSA, offers the unique opportunity for local farmers and their community to join forces into a mutually beneficial relationship. It is a popular way for consumers to buy top quality, local, seasonal produce directly from farmers.
How It Works You purchase a farm share for a growing season and make a commitment to share with the farmer both the bounty of the land and some of the risk. You pay the farmer at the beginning of the CSA and in return, each week you will receive a basket full of fresh picked, peak of ripeness, delicious, organic vegetables grown by a farmer you personally know and trust. In addition to your incredible produce, you will also receive a weekly newsletter with recipes, farm updates, and other useful tidbits. You can also volunteer for 4 hours during the CSA program and receive a $25 discount.
The Benefits of CSA You get to reconnect with your food source, support your local economy, and foster environmental education in your community. By joining our CSA you invest in the local economy and help keep our land productive, as well as, responsibly managed.
