What is a CSA?
The term CSA means “Community Supported Agriculture.” It is a production and distribution model for farmers and community members. Individuals become CSA members by buying “shares” of the farm produce at the beginning of the growing season and then receive the produce on a weekly basis. The shares that have sold provide the farmer the capital needed to purchase the seed and supplies to start their growing season, and in turn provides the community with fresh, local and sustainable vegetables, often at prices comparable or lower than those found in a supermarket. This model asks the CSA members to share the trials, tribulations, risks and rewards of the season with their farmer.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is it too late to sign up for a membership?
No, we are still accepting members.
2. Can I get a refund?
We will also not be allowing refunds during the season.
3. Can I change the pick-up date or skip a week of pick-ups?
If you are going on vacation or have another scheduling conflict and need to change the date of the pick-up or skip a week, let us know in advance. However, no permanent changes to pick-up dates will be made.
4. Do I get a choice of what goes in my bag?
You will get a selection of vegetables that were harvested for that week. Since our CSA is relatively small, if you have preferences for certain vegetables that we grow, we can try to make accommodations.
