What is a CSA?

CSA is short for Community Supported Agriculture. Members who purchase a “share” of our CSA will be provided with seasonally fresh produce grown from our farm during our 16 week Summer season. Share sizes vary depending on how many people the share will feed and time of year. We hold high quality standards to everything that we do so that when our food comes to you it is the best possible product. Our produce is guaranteed fresh and safe through the use of sustainable and organic practices such as composting, vermicomposting, and crop rotation. Buying a share of our farm connects you directly to local farmers and strengthens the social, economic, and environmental dynamics within your local community.

CSA Shares vary throughout the season but you can expect to see 8-12+ items each delivery from our 40 different types of vegetables and over 90 different varieties. Each year we add in new varieties so that you, our customers, can try things you may have never had before. Of course we have everyone’s favorites like garlic, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers, lettuce, broccoli and more, but we also offer vegetables that are less known like kale, swiss chard, broccoli raab, any many others. In order to make sure that our products get put to use in your kitchen, we provide a weekly newsletter with recipes, storage tips, farm news, and other important information. In addition we offer farm tours so that you can see your vegetables, chickens and eggs up close and personal!
