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.
