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.
Due to the increase in production and labor costs, we will be doing a slight increase our CSA share prices on February 15th. To ensure you receive the current price, purchase your share prior to February 15th.
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.
Signups are now open!
For every share, you will receive weekly newsletters (when the share begins for the season) about what's in the share, when it starts, pickup information, instructions, recipes, and more.
If you are gifting a share or splitting a share with someone, please leave the other recipients' email(s) in the notes section at checkout so they can also receive the newsletters!
Frequently asked questions
Can I get my CSA pre boxed or delivered?
Yes you can! If you are crunched for time one week, or prefer to have us make your selections for you, you can opt in for a pre-boxed curbside pickup or delivery for the week from our online store.
How does the Main Season CSA pickup work?
For each pickup, you will come on your designated pickup day, the day you selected when signing up for your share. During COVID, you will sign up for a timeslot to come, to avoid overcrowding in the barn.
