Community Supported Agriculture
What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is basically a subscription to produce- the member pays the farmer upfront before harvest season, and in return a box of fresh, in-season produce is given to the member. This is a bargain for the customer because it grants them access to fresh local produce, at a discounted rate. CSA is good for our farm because it gives us working capital during the slow time of year when we are investing in the upcoming growing season.
Why should you join?
Being a member of a CSA program is a great way to ensure that you're getting a variety of in-season, locally grown fruits and vegetables every week during our growing season. Your items will typically be picked, packed, and delivered within a 24-48 hour time period. Once packed, your share will be delivered to the drop off location you select or will be waiting for you at our farmers market. Membership also includes a discount for purchases made in our farm market and opportunities for pick your own that are not available to our other customers. Also, members receive weekly newsletters which describe what is happening on the farm along with storage tips, recipes, and important information about the items in the shares.
Shares can be picked up between the hours of 1PM and 7PM at off-site locations and between Noon and 7PM at our farm market location.
Any shares that are not picked up will become property of the site host, unless advance arrangements have been made with the host. In the event that you are unable to pick up your share please make arrangements to have somebody pick up your CSA box for you. This makes it easier for all parties involved and is a great way to introduce the program to neighbors, friends, or family!
