What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA programs are a great way to support your local farmer and receive fresh, local produce. By paying a one time fee up front, the CSA members assist with pre-season costs and crop planning. In return, the CSA members receive fresh produce from the farm each week. The CSA program allows you to receive a weekly box with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, fresh from the farm during the spring and summer months! When participating in a CSA program, you will select a pickup location in your area that your box will be delivered to. It will be delivered the same day and time each week. Due to our harvest being dependent not only on weather but many other variables, the start date of our CSA programs is not the same date every year. However you will be notified of the start date in advance.
Benefits of Being a CSA Member
Being a CSA member, you will receive weekly email about what you will receive each week as well as updates about our farm. Our CSA members are always notified first when there is extra produce or specialty items available for sale. In addition, you will be invited to join our CSA Facebook group where we share recipes using the produce you will receive. We also have a Farm Day each year that we invite our CSA members to attend where we provide a farm tour so members can learn and see first hand how our farm operates.
