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.

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.
