COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

 

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for consumers and farmers to share the risks and benefits of food production in a given growing season. By purchasing a CSA share before the growing season starts, you are supporting a local farmer in advance in exchange for receiving a weekly share of the harvest all season long.

CSA programs allow consumers to enjoy eating fresh food grown right in their community,  while learning what it means to eat seasonally. CSAs are the best possible way to eat the most nutrient dense organically grown food.

Harvest occurs the same morning as pickup – we believe in fresh!





As a CSA member, you will learn about what crops are available  during the summer. Timing and availability will vary each year based on the weather and agricultural variables.

How much is a CSA share?

Large Share  $600 - this option comes with 6-8 different vegetables weekly, but with greater item quantity than the basic share. It is great for people who cook and eat lots of leftovers!  This share will feed families of 5 or more people.


Basic Share - $500 - this option will receive 4-6 different types of .vegetables weekly. It is the best choice for smaller families or those interested in trying new vegetables often.  This share will feed 2-4 people.


Half Share - $250 - this option comes with 4-6 different vegetables bi-weekly. It is the same size as the basic share. It is great busy families who love fresh vegetables, but aren't home enough to go through them all in a week.


Working Share - 12 hours/month- want to farm but don't have the space? This is the option for you! Come work on the farm for 12 hours a month and receive 50% off the basic share of vegetables. The best part is you will help grow and harvest what you are bringing home to your family.
