WHAT IS A CSA?

Thanks for your interest in our CSA. We will not be offering a CSA for the rest of the farm’s life. Thank you to our members! But, please read about the process

CSA or Community Supported Agriculture is a part of the modern organic and local “movement” that is really about a fresher, healthier, and sustainable way of growing and buying food—without long-distance transportation and other costs.

Community Supported Agriculture groups, or CSA’s, allow consumers to develop a relationship with a farm to know where their food comes from and how it is grown and harvested. The CSA farm offers a subscription, where buyers receive a weekly basket of produce, delivered soon after it is picked.

By making a financial commitment to a farm, people become “members” (or “subscribers”) of the CSA. This provides the needed financial backing to make this sort of healthy, small-scale farming possible.
