Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a relationship between customers and producers in which everyone shares the risks and rewards of farming. CSA customers are shareholders who pay in advance for a portion, or share, of foods that will be harvested throughout the season.
The food is the freshest. You’ll taste the freshness in your foods because you’ll pick up most crops within 24 hours of harvest.
Diverse diets are healthy diets. As a CSA member, you’ll discover new vegetable varieties and receive tips and recipes on how to prepare them.
Know your farmer. You'll actually see your farmer face-to-face every week at your CSA pickup.
Eat seasonally. You’ll taste the changing seasons and learn when various vegetables thrive in our local climate.
