CSA Shares

Community Supported Agriculture  |  Eat Local

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between a farm and its community of shareholders, sharing both the benefits and risks associated with farming.

The Shareholder buys a “Share of the Harvest” upfront, which helps the farmer cover early season operating expenses (i.e. seed, greenhouse heating expenses, labor, etc.). In return, the shareholder receives a weekly share of the harvest on a regular pick-up day throughout the growing season. 

The CSA model encourages the involvement of the community and promotes the understanding of farming -how, when, where does my food come from? The shareholder money goes directly to the farm, the shareholder benefits without the costs associated with traditional sales of produce (trucking, packaging, middlemen, etc.). CSAs encourage environmentally safe, sustainable, local food production.

Shares begin in Mid-June and run through the end of October. Scroll down to find our CSA Sign-up Sheet!
