Vegetable CSA

What is a CSA, You ask?

For over a quarter of a century, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. This arrangement proves to be very beneficial for both the farmer and the consumer. Here’s how:

Advantages for Consumers

  •    Eat ultra-fresh food, with all the flavor and vitamin benefits
  •    Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking
  •    Usually get to visit the farm at least once a season
  •    Kids typically favor food from “their” farm – even veggies they’ve never been known to eat
  •    Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows their food and learn more about how food is grown

Advantages for farmers

  •   Get to spend time marketing the food early in the year, before their 16 hour days in the field begin
  •    Receive payment early in the season, which helps with the farm’s cash flow
  •    Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow

What We Offer

We offer a variety of fresh, seasonal vegetables and herbs organically grown and will deliver a weekly share of farm-fresh vegetables, or half-share depending on your vegetable intake, to your home or work each week. And speaking of half-shares, don’t let the term fool you. Half-shares have enough in them to sustain a hungry family as well.

A sample basket in the early summer may contain, but certainly not limited to, the following:

  •   Radishes
  •   Head Lettuce
  •   Green .Onion
  •   Chives
  •   Dill
  •   Oregano
  •   Mesculin
  •   Spinach
  •   Kale
  •   Beets

As the summer progresses and new crops come into season, your basket contents will change giving you the freshest produce available. What’s more, each week you will receive a short newsletter of farm happenings and recipes utilizing your weekly veggies.
