What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to link your food directly from the farm to you. Members purchase a “share” in the farm, and in exchange they receive a weekly box of mixed produce from June through the end of September. This arrangement is mutually beneficial-the farmer receives “seed money” in the spring when expenses are greatest and has a stable customer base established. The farm member (you) gets to know the farm and farmers, receives a variety of produce at its peak in flavor and freshness, and directly supports the local economy and a small family farm at the same time.

SHARE THE ABUNDANCE / SHARE THE RISK.
Please remember that as a member of our farm’s CSA you share in the season’s abundance as well as the risk. Last year our winter squash struggled, for example, but our tomatoes, beets, beans, and carrots excelled. By joining a CSA you are providing your farmers with a stable income that is relatively shielded from the unpredictability of weather, insects, & disease.
