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. 


 

WEEK 1 of CSA.
We are excited to be sharing with you and starting our CSA season.
In your Week 1, you will find something like this:
MacIntosh Apples from Hirsch's Farm & Market, Honey from Sara Bee, Asparagus from Hurley's Farm, Two Living Lettuces in crispers, radishes, the Blue re-usable tote, and a cookbook (for first time customers). (The radishes will vary depending on how many we find who survived the frost!) Returning CSA customers will find an extra FEAST on the FARM ticket this year in the fall.
Remember to save your CRISPERS, and reuse them each week. Also the Blue tote is for your convenience in carrying your weekly CSA, so please plan to bring it to each pickup.
