What's a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is popular way for consumers to purchase local, seasonal food directly from a local farmer.  

Members of the CSA buy a "share" at the beginning of the year, which allows small farms (like us!) a strong financial start to the growing season.  Throughout the season, the CSA Members then pickup their share of freshly-harvested vegetables on a weekly basis, giving them access to a variety of the freshest, most nutritious local produce available.

This relationship benefits the farmers, the members, and the earth we share by enabling sustainable, organic agricultural practices on local level.

A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other’s lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.
