Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (aka CSA) is a partnership between a local farm and the CSA members who buy a “share” of the harvest for the season. Because a huge amount of a farm’s yearly expenses happen before the growing season begins, and thus before we can expect any income, CSA members play a crucial role each year by paying for their share before the growing season begins. This helps the farm pay for the supplies and seeds we need to get started. In return, our CSA members will receive twenty weekly shares of fresh vegetables grown on the farm and picked at the peak of flavor.
