CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal produce directly from a farm in their own community. By buying a “share,” you become a member of a CSA, and as such you’re making a conscious and healthy choice about how you will eat as well as lending support to the agricultural producers in your local area.
By signing up for your share early, you’re helping us plan for the growing season. It’s also a way of ensuring that we have sufficient resources to seed, till, and harvest when the produce is ripe, luscious, and prime to pick.
Whatever is at peak, fresh and ready for you to eat! There are usually 8 – 10 different items, enough to feed a small family for a few evenings or a couple who likes to cook. Below is an example of what we might harvest in August and how you might use the ingredients. Watch our blog as we regularly post information about what’s coming out of the ground right now, and recipes and tips for best using those fresh, fresh ingredients.
