What is a CSA?
CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, is a way to buy local, seasonal food shares directly from a farm. Our CSA allows us to offer the community fresh, seasonal produce on a weekly basis and invites you, our neighbors and friends, to be an intricate part of the farm’s success and longevity. Thank YOU to all our existing and new CSA members! Your commitment to supporting the farm, choosing local and eating healthy means the world to us. We couldn't do it without YOU!
The selection of our weekly shares is based on crop availability and seasonality. Family, or Full shares, have 10 to 15 items, while a half share will have fewer items. Shares are boxed ahead of time to keep the produce extremely fresh no matter what time of day you come. Utilize the swap table where you may exchange an item for one that may fit your menu better. As always share contents are subject to change with harvesting.
