What is a “CSA”?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are designed to enrich the community/farmer relationship. Members buy shares of the farm’s future harvest before the season starts. In exchange for a discounted up-front fee, members receive weekly bags of produce throughout the life of the CSA.
Growers benefit from the guaranteed revenue to invest in infrastructure, seeds, supplies, etc. to better serve the members. Members benefit by receiving fresh, local, chemical-free produce at a discounted rate throughout the life of the CSA. It also ensures members receive goods when “farmers’ markets” are not open.
Duration: 7 weeks, mid-April through May, 2019.
What: Seasonal, fresh, local, chemical-free produce.
- salad greens (lettuce, spicy mix, arugula, spinach)
- root vegetables (radish, carrot, salad turnip, beet)
- bunched greens (kale, chard, collard)
Notes of Interest:
Space is limited (did I mention “mini”?)
Members of the Early Spring CSA will have priority for future CSA offerings. A 2019 Fall – Holiday CSA is in the works.
Pickup will be Saturdays at The Farm.
Due to the inherent risk of farming, harvest fluctuations may occur. This means members share both, in the abundance and the failures.
Payment is due no later than February 9, 2019.
