What Is A CSA?
Joining a CSA allows you to connect with the food that you eat. A CSA model of agriculture is a system that connects the producer directly with local consumers. Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, connects people who want to source the best food available with a local farm. It is an alternative model of food system in that the farmer and the customer share risk. This works by customers or shareholders purchasing a “share” of the farm at the beginning of the season, usually before any production has started. In exchange, the member is provided a regular interval of fresh produce.
What Participate In Our CSA?
By joining our CSA, you can be confident of receiving the freshest, most nutritious, organic produce possible. You can be certain that your vegetables are grown without toxic chemical herbicides and pesticides. You will receive varieties of vegetables through the season that are chosen for their excellent flavor and nutrition. You will be supporting a local farm that is operated in harmony with the environment. You can conveniently do a week’s worth of vegetable shopping simply by picking up your share in one convenient stop.
What Is A CSA Share & Why Should You Choose Organic?
We offer CSA members generous “share” packages of our garden harvest each year. Membership with our farm will provide you with a wide array of fresh “Organic”, in season, quality produce without the inconvenience of planning and maintaining a garden yourself. Our package prices are fair and are designed to support our efforts in the seeding, weeding, growing, maintaining, harvesting, packaging and labor of these wonderful garden products.
Farming without GMO’S is key when producing healthy vegetables. Eating “Organic” isn’t just about food. “Organic” is a vision for working and living in harmony with nature. The result is healthy soil, which grows healthy plants, which make for healthy people.
What Does Our CSA Cost?
There are two options to choose from: full shares for $675 (22 weeks) and half shares for $375 (11 weeks). Each week the farm targets an average of $32 worth of vegetables in our shares. Knowing your farmer and how your vegetables are grown is important when looking for great taste and nutritional value. Please complete commitment form and sign-up form even if you choose to pay online, and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms are included when online purchase is made.
