What is a CSA?

When you purchase a ‘share’ of the season’s produce from a farmer before the season begins, you share in the risk and success of your local farming community. CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a shared commitment to building a more local and equitable agriculture system, one that allows growers to focus on land stewardship and still maintain profitable small farms. CSA farmers typically use organic and/or biodynamic farming methods, and strive to provide fresh, high quality food.

About Our CSA:
