What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A local produce subscription where members receive weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables and some fruits for 20 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, updates, and useful recipes.

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

  • Keep more food dollars local.

What to expect in a CSA? 


Members can look forward to a delicious diversity of produce throughout the season. Items change from week to week. Farms grow between 30-60 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.
 

CSA Pick-up Location

 

Pick up your share each week on Tuesdays from 3-5pm at Big Ass Fans at 2348 Innovation Drive in Lexington, KY or choose a nearby community pick-up or home delivery for additional fee.
