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. We have CSA shares available year round.
We have 2 great CSA options available to meet your families needs!
