CSA is an economic model of food production and community food security, where local eaters make a financial, personal, and philosophical commitment to a farm and its farmer. That farmer in turn makes a working commitment to grow and share the abundance of the season's harvest with those CSA members.
Members of a farm's CSA pay up-front in the spring when farmers need money for seed, supplies and equipment. In return members receive a weekly share in the farm's harvest. We hope our CSA community continues to be a place where members share recipes with one another, meet other families and neighbors, and spend time with their own families while picking flowers and enjoying member events.
Community Supported Agriculture re-connects farmers and consumers in an economic model of shared risk and shared reward. It helps empower consumers with the knowledge of where their food comes from and how it was grown. It helps empower farmers by building lasting relationships with the community who supports our work.
