CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The purpose is for consumers to invest in a farm at the start of the growing season. By purchasing a “share” of the harvest, CSA members then receive part of the farm’s freshly picked produce each week for a designated period of time.
CSA programs connect people with their community. It is a great way to be connected to the land where your food is grown and the farmer who grows it. You are saving family farms and helping preserve our rural community. By becoming a CSA member, you are helping protect local farmers against loss simply by agreeing to take what ends up growing rather than a predetermined selection or quantity. Part of the fun in joining a CSA is making a commitment to planning your meals around what you receive at the farm and experimenting with new foods. Your produce will be picked fresh, which partly accounts for the better flavor and it will not have as much time to lose nutrients on shelves or in trucks.
You receive what is ripe and seasonal. A family share feeds between 3-6 people, about a bushel box. A single share feeds 1-3 people, about a half bushel box. Depending on the month, you may receive rhubarb, asparagus, lettuce, squash, corn, strawberries. tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, herbs, and more. We have three share sizes available.
Family share – 18 weeks - $595
Single share – 18 weeks - $395
Half share – 10 weeks (every other week) - $215
