WHAT IS A CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a subscription-style farming partnership between CSA members (you!) and the farmer. Members sign up early in the season for weekly CSA shares that last during the peak growing season. In return for this early commitment, CSA members receive the freshest food possible, build connections with the farm and farmers, learn about new vegetables, explore recipes that you may not have tried before, and gain an understanding of true sustainable, local farming. In return, the farmers spend more time producing the best crops possible instead of spending more time selling the produce. This allows us to have more money at the beginning of the season to cover start-up costs like vegetable seeds. This also gives us the opportunity to learn more about the CSA members and what type of food the members want!
PRICE AND BENEFITS
A part of the concept of the CSA membership is to support the farm financially at the beginning of the farming season (where most of our expenses occur). We understand that budgeting a full summer’s worth of produce costs into one payment can be a challenge, so we offer a payment plan with 2 installments. A deposit/down payment is due to reserve a CSA membership for your family, with the balance due/final payment by March 1st, 2020. Shares not paid in full by March 1st, 2020 will be made available to members on the waiting list, and your balance will be returned less a $20 administrative fee.
IS THERE ANY RISK?
The early spirit of Community Supported Agriculture is that eaters and farmers work together to contribute to a resilient, healthy, and sustainable local food system. This leads to an understanding that CSA members provide support to the farm, while the farm works hard to provide a plentiful, consistent, and varied supply of farm fresh produce. We have 30+ years experience in agriculture production, farm stand and farmers’ market. That being said, there is a small element of risk in a CSA membership: due to weather or other events beyond our control, there may be complications with some crops, and the forecasted share supply may have to be changed on short notice.
OUR GROWING METHODS
We are minimalists, meaning that we like to use the least amount of chemicals to grow our crops. However, we do use fertilizer to yield a large enough quantity of produce. If there is a problem with pests, we use the bare minimum amount of FDA-approved chemicals necessary to allow us to harvest our crops. We utilize organic methods as often as possible.
