In a CSA the shareholder, or the consumer, shares in the risks of the farmer and has the opportunity to directly take part in the production of their own food. Shareholders proactively purchase the produce before it is even growing, helping the farmer pay for many of the costs involved. The farmer therefore invests the cost back into the farm. In return, shareholders gain access to the freshest, most nutritious produce available. This direct producer to consumer relationship is exceedingly rare in today’s industrialized food system. We enjoy and find it extremely important to grow food for our local communities, neighborhoods, restaurants, and hopefully you!
Is it MORE expensive than buying at your store?
Our Produce is competitively priced with naturally grown local produce you might find elsewhere. With our produce you know who grew it, how it was grown, and where it came from. All funds, again, are put back into maintaining our farms activities. C.S.A. is not about cheap food which is usually neither nourishing nor grown with care for the environment in mind. C.S.A. is about each of us eating fresh for our health and for the health of our planet.
The Food Box
The contents of your box depend on the season and the elements. We assure you of enough food that will feed a family of four that eats out occasionally throughout the week or a couple that cooks most of their meals throughout the week. All of it is fresh, clean, and plentiful. We work to give you a full variety of locally grown vegetables.
The Fall CSA season will last approximately 10 weeks, starting the week of October 9th through the week of December 11th.
