CSA

What is a CSA?
In the subscription model, CSA members buy a share of the farming operation which entitles them to a variety of produce every week during the growing season. The customer receives freshly picked, locally grown food from someone they know and can talk to. They are provided information on how the
farm operates and are given the opportunity to reconnect with the land and their food sources.
Share holders take on some of the risk and rewards of the growing season, receiving produce as it ripens. Members share in bumper crops as well as crop failures. In short, share holders are investing in the farm and are hiring us as their personal farmers.

How does this work?
Subscribers come to the farm each week during the growing season to pick up their allotment of produce. Typically, there are 20 deliveries during the growing season from June through October

What is in a share?
You can expect to receive 5-12 different types of produce each week, depending on the season. A typical large share is designed to feed a vegetarian family of two to three or a non-vegetarian family of four to six. This equates to 5 to 20 pounds of food per week depending on the season of the crops being delivered.
