CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a way for consumers to connect directly with farmers. It allows the consumer to get fresh, in-season, locally grown produce weekly throughout the growing season.
Individuals or families purchase a “share” up front, usually in the spring. This share equates to a weekly “box” of produce, grown on the farm, for a set number of weeks. This relationship benefits both the farmer and the consumer.
Why a CSA?
There are multiple reasons why a CSA is a great choice.
· The produce is fresh (it is harvested either the day before, or the day you receive it)
· Most varieties we grow are not the grocery store standards, so you get unique and delicious flavors, colors and textures.
· You get to support a local farmer growing without the use of chemicals and have the opportunity to visit the farm and see exactly where and how it’s being grown.
2018 Fall CSA
The sign-up window for the fall CSA ends on Sunday 8/26.
A small share will provide fresh produce for a single person or couple to have a fresh vegetable or fruit daily. A large share will provide enough for a family of four (or someone who eats a fair amount of fresh produce), allowing at least one meal a day to include a fresh vegetable.
Pricing and CSA window
The fall CSA begins the last week of August and ends the last Tuesday of October, for a total of 10 weeks.
The cost of a small fall share is $150 and a large is $250
The prices work out to $15/week for the small and $25/week for the large.
