What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A local produce subscription where members receive weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables for 20+ weeks during the main growing season (May - October).

A model of buying food that is focused on community where a participant pays in advance for a share and then becomes a important member of the farm for the whole season.

A weekly box or basket of fresh local vegetables. The items in a share are harvested at their peak ripeness and will often store longer and have more flavor than other produce.

What are the Benefits of CSA? 

  • Easy access to healthy food and the opportunity to try new foods.

  • Convenience--pick up your share at work or on the way home.

  • Know your farmer that grows your food. Receive regular newsletters, updates, and useful recipes.

  • Enjoy the positive health impact of increasing your vegetable consumption and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

  • Keep more food dollars local.
