Community Supported Agriculture

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is one of the most direct connections with the farm that is producing your food. It is also a way the consumers share both the risks and joys of farming. For an upfront fee, members become seasonal shareholders in the farm harvest.

When you become a member of a CSA you commit yourself to supporting a farmer for a season by helping to pay for seed, soil amendments, and growing supplies. In return, the farmer will provide you with a variety of fresh, high-quality produce throughout the growing season.

 

CSA Packages

Our CSA program offers two kinds of baskets for you to choose from:
VEGAN. Healthy, vitamin concentrated fresh veggies plus berries, apples and grapes. The price for one share is $30 per week.
VEGETARIAN. Healthy, vitamin concentrated fresh veggies, and berries, plus free-range eggs, no GMO. The price for one share is $35 per week.

Our CSA season runs from May to October, and for a weekly pick-up, each bag will be about a half bushel to a bushel in size with fresh vegetables and fruits, and extra items when we have an abundant season production.

We are flexible to accommodate your needs and we will make it easy for you to chose the months you would like to receive your CSA share. We offer a 30% discount price for a full CSA season of six months and  15% discount for half of the CSA season of three months.
