CSA - Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a creative economic model started by Japanese mothers who were concerned about rising food imports and the loss of arable land. A CSA is a partnership between a farm and a community of supporters (shareholders) which fosters a relationship that is mutually beneficial in the production and consumption of food.
This economic model continues to encourage local, environmentally sustainable food production practices that are mutually beneficial to farmers and shareholders alike. While the principle of sharing risks and rewards between farmers and shareholders links all CSAs, each CSA will have its own unique way of operating.
Your purchase of the CSA share allows us to purchase the seed, fertilizer, soil amendments, pay our staff, and much more during the winter and spring seasons when we wouldn't otherwise have any income. We ask you to please consider signing up for your CSA as soon as you are able.
When you sign up, please remember that if you are sharing for a friend or signing up for someone else, please add their email address into the note section at check out and we will make sure they get on the newsletter list.
What We Offer
We have a variety of share offerings, designed to provide produce almost all year long. In essence, this bond is created when shareholders cover part of the farm’s operating expenses by purchasing a share of the season’s harvest in advance. In return, the farm provides a regular pick-up of fresh, seasonal produce throughout the growing season.
