CSA

Community Supported Agriculture

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutual agreement between individuals and the farmer/grower. Members sign an application and agree to pay in advance. Members also agree to share in the reward of a good growing season and risks of a difficult season. The rewards include a variety of fresh organically grown produce and herbs each week of the CSA season. The risks can because of low yields, weather, disease and pests.

The CSA season begins in May and ends in August. Two canvas or recycled bags are required and exchanged each week. Pickups are weekly and members are encouraged to have someone pickup there bag if they can’t make it. Prior arrangements can be made for a missed pickup. Only one missed pickup is made up through the 12 week season.

Working at the farm isn’t a requirement for joining but there are volunteering opportunities available throughout the season. A few times a month particularly during the early part of the season where help is really needed and much appreciated.  An email is sent to members detailing work dates and times.

“The Bag”

Here’s an example of what’s in a weekly bag of produce. In the spring lettuce, spinach, arugula, radishes, greens(collards, kale, chard) and scallions. You will receive a combination of four to six items in the bag each week.
