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 to expect in a CSA share?
Members can look forward to a delicious diversity of produce throughout the season. Items change from week to week. Barr Farms grows over 40 different crops for their CSA and often varieties you can't access in the grocery store. Being a CSA member is a great way to try news foods and recipes. Look at the shares below to get an idea of what is harvested in different months of the CSA season.
Small Share: 5-9 items per week. Good for households with 1-2 people who enjoy cooking a few times a week. Best for first time CSA members.
Regular Share: 6-12 items per week. Good for households with 2-4 people who enjoy cooking several times a week.
Abundant Share: 10- 14 items or more per week. Good for larger households with 4 or more people who enjoy cooking most nights a week.
CSA members can set vegetable preferences at the beginning of the season and then receive a customized share built on those preferences.
Each week they can then review their customized share and make additional changes prior to pick-up.
Pricing & Payment Options:
Members can choose to "Pay in Full" or "Pay in Installments". If you choose the payment plan, your balance is divided into four equal payments, first payment due at signup, second payment due by May 1, third payment due by June 1, and final payment due by July 1.
View the chart below for CSA share cost with and without the $200 APH CSA voucher for the 24-week main CSA season.
