CSA stands for Community Supported
Agriculture. Being part of a CSA is an agreement between you and us, the
farmers. As a CSA member, you pay upfront for a share of the seasonís harvest,
which we grow and distribute to you on a weekly basis. Being in a CSA
gives you the assurance that you will share in the fresh, healthy vegetables we
produce at our farm.
As a CSA member, you will have access to
our recipe book which contains advice on storing and recipes for preparing the
vegetables we grow. You will see where and how your food is grown, and
share in the joys and disappointments of crops as they come in season. You will
be able to rest assured that your food is produced
locally and healthfully, without any pesticides, with great attention given to
quality, and in a way that respects the integrity of land, water, air and other
Participating in a CSA is a
way of investing in your familyís health, as well as the environmentís, and it
is also a way of strengthening the food security of your community. It is
important to be aware that by participating
in a CSA you assume some risk, just as we, the farmers, do. Unpredictable
weather and other forces of nature may reduce or destroy crops thus affecting
what you get and how much.
Our CSA does not have a work requirement, but as a member, we value your feedback and input
regarding our farmís operation.
