WHAT IS CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” Developed in the 1960’s in Japan, CSA programs are designed to build a relationship between the farmer and community. Members (that’s you) buy shares in the farms output before the season starts, then reap the benefits of the harvest each week as the season progresses. CSA members agree to share in the fluctuation and variations inherent in faming and understand that their produce will be grown with organic, sustainable farming practices. Members are, in essence, shareholders in the farm, thus becoming invested in its successes and failures. This joint venture allows the farmer to receive capital before the season starts when they need it most and allows them to be in the field during the growing season instead of worrying about selling their produce.
There are other benefits to supporting local farms and CSA programs. As consumers, we have become accustomed to buying fruits and vegetables shipped from all over the world, regardless of the season. This is a waste of resources and energy. This long journey sacrifices the nutritional value and flavor of the produce. By choosing locally grown food, you ensure that you are eating the freshest, most nutrient dense, and best tasting food possible while being environmentally responsible at the same time.
WHAT YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO:
Each member will enjoy a weekly or bi-weekly share of fresh, naturally grown vegetables and herbs (dependent on availability). Our carefully selected varieties and organic growing practices bring out the very best in flavor and nutrition. Produce is harvested when it is ripe, just before you receive it.
Members can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything is grown organically, meeting or exceeding that of USDA Organic protocols. We never use chemicals, synthetic pesticides or herbicides on any of our crops.
We offer weekly or bi-weekly shares with multiple pick-up options, A sample of CSA share might include a bag of spring lettuce mix. a bunch of carrots, a bunch of swiss chard, a bunch of red curly kale and a bunch of green onions.
