Community Supported Agriculture
What is Community Supported Agriculture?
CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) encourages you to get to know your farmer and know where your food is coming from.
Our members experience locally grown produce, eggs and meat in a new way and learn to eat with the seasons. Customers become members of the farm by buying shares before the season begins. In turn, the farm provides shareholders every week during the season with a variety of farm goods to enjoy.
Shareholders support a local family farm, the local community and receive local produce each week. Shareholders are also exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking. After trying new veggies, shareholders often find that they really enjoy vegetables that they would have never purchased or tried before.
CSA shares are available year round.
Newsletters are included weekly and there is a great selection of recipes on our blog with ideas of how to cook your fresh produce.
Farm Stand Style CSA
Crisp Country Acres primarily offers a “Farm-Stand” style CSA. Members purchase credit for the summer or winter season. Members come to the farm store or our stand at the farmers market to pick-up produce during the season.
Your credit can be used for anything we have available! There are many things to choose from including a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, honey and more! Farm stand style CSA members are able to choose their own share and have the flexibility to come when and where works for them.
