What is a CSA?

 

A CSA, (Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farm and to receive a weekly basket of produce. As a member of the CSA, you receive shares in the farm’s bounty throughout the growing season, as well as the satisfaction gained from reconnecting to the land and participating directly in food production. You also gain the added benefit of receiving fresh, local produce that has been grown in a way that is healthy for both you and the environment.

A CSA is about the relationship between the farmer and the consumer, and with this relationship comes an understanding of the quality of the food, where and how it is grown, and a peace of mind knowing that it comes free of any harmful chemicals; it is the way Mother Nature intended it to be.  In signing up for a seasons worth of produce, you are taking a risk with us, saying we’re in it together, whatever the season brings we’re there for you, it is an arrangement that has benefits for everyone involved. Although it is not required that members spend time on the farm, a helping hand is always appreciated and you are always welcome to come see how things are going throughout the growing season.
