CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture)
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is an opportunity for customers to develop a close relationship with an individual farm while gaining a share in the farm’s harvest.
For farmers, this provides much needed cash flow for the beginning of the season, as well as a ready market and community of supporters. Shareholders join in the risks of the growing season but reap the benefits of the harvest. Each CSA farm has its own pricing structure, disbursement schedule, and some have work requirements. Many CSAs also accept SNAP benefits for payment.
Traditional style CSAs are similar to a subscription box of fruits, vegetables, meats, etc. Debit-style CSAs are similar to receiving a store credit to the farm of your choosing that can be used for the season.
Please contact the farm directly for more information.
