What is a CSA

CSA stands for “community supported agriculture”. CSA is a relationship between farmer and consumer. You get a different and varied array of freshly harvested vegetables and fruit every week of the growing season. The farmer gets your commitment before they plant a single seed. This means having the money to buy seeds and equipment plus the time to do what they love best- farm.

How does it work?

Traditional members pay the farmer at the beginning of the season, but if you need to do installments we will work with you. Each week you will receive a basket of produce equaling an average of $22-$25 value. A full share is usually enough food to compliment the average menu of a family of 2-3 non vegetarians.

Why CSA’s?

Buy fresh from the local farmers and enjoy the world’s healthiest, best tasting produce. Food is a basic human need, but did you know that vegetables in the US travel an average of 1,300 miles from farm to supermarket. Almost every state buys 85% of its food from someplace else. The best farm land is being lost to commercial and residential development at an accelerated rate. CSA creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown and those who grow it. This mutually supportive relationship creates an economically stable farm operation in which members are assured the comfort that their family is eating chemical and pesticide free produce. In return the farmers are guaranteed a reliable market for a diverse selection of crops.
