What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is part of a growing social movement that encourages urban & rural citizens to share responsibility for the land where their food is grown as well as how their food is produced. In simplest terms,

CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers.

Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season. 


 

 


 

Yes! Look at these baby lettuce plants. This photo represents five days of growth in our incubator. It will take 80-100 days for our tomatoes and peppers to produce ripe food for your table.

 Through farmers markets and our CSA program, we are working to plant & provide you with some of the freshest, most delicious and absolutely local food you can find anywhere. 

We have room for 10K plants in our big greenhouse. These are planted by HAND, as seen below, except for the cucumbers. We are planting tomatoes and various kinds of peppers.
