What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A local produce subscription where members receive weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables and some fruits for 24 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, KY Proud, and certified organic vegetables. The items in a share are harvested at their peak ripeness to maximize their flavor and quality

What are the Benefits of CSA?

  • Easy access to healthy fresh 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 with useful recipes.

  • Enjoy health benefits of increasing vegetable consumption throughout the season.

  • Keep more food dollars local. 

  • 100% USDA certified organic produce. All coalition farms are certified organic.
