Community Supported Agriculture

WHAT IS A CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is a program that directly links local farmers and the consumer. Consumers pre-purchase a share of the farm’s harvest for the upcoming season. This allows for the farmer to better plan the amount needed for the community thereby lowering waste and costs. CSA members share the risk with the farmer which in turn reduces seasonal loans and cost.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

There are many benefits to participating in a CSA. Some are listed here below:

  • CSA memberships keep your money in your community.
  • The farmer has guaranteed market for his produce and receives a fair price thereby reducing overall prices.
  • Members have access to the freshest, highest quality, seasonal produce.
  • You have a chance to experience new foods that you may have tried before.
  • You know your farmer and how your food is being produced.
  • Children who have their own “farm share” are more likely to eat what they have helped “produce”.
  • CSA are communities where recipes, ideas and cooking tips are widely shared among their members.
  • You will receive a weekly email with what you should expect to receive that week along with recipes for each type of vegetable.

HOW IT WORKS?

You the consumer purchase a share. Shares are available in full or half sizes. Your share entitles you to a wide variety of vegetables each week which you will pick-up at the farm. The items will be the in season item from that week. For an example a late spring box might include lettuce, radishes and scallions while a box in the early fall might contain tomatoes, winter squash and corn. Contents of the box will be based on retail price of the product and will have the equivalent of $31.25 in weekly produce for a full share and $15.65 in a half share of weekly produce. Multiple shares may be purchased to accommodate larger families or sharing with family and friends.
