Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is about customers getting the freshest local produce available while using the power of their dollars to support small farms. CSA brings farmers and families together around the production and consumption of the best quality local food. As a CSA member, you have the opportunity to know your farmer and the lush farmland that work to produce the food you share at your dinner tables. Whether meeting us at our markets, visiting our farm, or following us online you become part of this stronger food system. CSA exists, in part, in response to a broken food system that exploits people and the land to produce food of poor nutritional value. Hence CSA focuses on land stewardship and agricultural sustainability. By becoming a member of our CSA, you vote for all of these values.
Purchasing a membership from the farm entitles you to share in the successes of production. Yet there is also a shared risk. Members always come first. And still the rains or frosts or pests of the season may not cooperate. Sharing in this risk is part of your pledge of support.
We are back for our second year! We are happy to offer a CSA and would love for you to become a member! Please take the time to read through the information below and please contact us if you have any questions.
Our CSA share consists of a weekly box starting in mid-June running for 18-19 weeks through mid-October. Our 3/4 bushel box feeds an average family of four or two veggie-lovers. You can expect 10-15 varieties depending on the season. Our 5/9 bushel box (which is 75% the size of our 3/4 bushel box) feeds a family of 2-3 or one veggie-lover. You can expect 7-12 varieties depending on the season. Sharing a 3/4 bushel share with another person or family is a popular option, but we ask that you arrange this with each other separately. Our CSA boxes are a great value for the amount of produce you receive. Our weekly deliveries contain 25 to 30% more vegetables than you could get for the same price in a Coop.
