What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

CSA is a local produce subscription program where members receive weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables for 20-22 weeks during the main growing season.

CSA is focused on community where members buy a share from the farm upfront ahead of the season and share in the risk and reward of the season. 

 

CSA provides members with fresh, KY Proud, and certified organic vegetables. The items in a share are harvested for members at their peak ripeness and will often store longer and have more flavor.

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 health benefits of increasing vegetable consumption and eating out less frequently.

  • Keep more food dollars local.
