What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A local produce subscription where members receive weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables for 20-22 weeks during the main growing season (May - October).

A model of buying food that is focused on community where members pay in advance for a share and then become a valued member of the farm for the whole season. 

Members receive vegetables that are fresh, KY Proud, and certified organic. The items in a share are harvested at their peak ripeness and will often store longer and have more flavor.

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, updates, and useful recipes.

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

  • Keep more food dollars local.
