Community Supported Agriculture Program:
The Community Supported Agriculture or CSA program is a way to directly connect the consumer and the farmer, a relationship that has become extinct due to the introduction of shelf stable and fast foods. We are here to create that connection. As a CSA member you become a shareholder in the farm for that season.
Before the season begins, a share in the farm is purchased and then returned to you each week in the form of 8 different produce items for the entire season. This is a beautiful symbiotic relationship for both the farmer and the consumer: the farmer has up-front capital to prepare for the season ahead and the consumer is in turn provided fresh produce all season long. In addition to receiving local organically raised vegetables and knowing your farmer, you also help stimulate the local economy and support sustainable farming methods. Putting money into a local business is the best way to see economic change close to home.
When becoming a CSA member, the wide world of vegetables is now yours to explore. What is in season may not always be what is on the dinner menu, but, as the weeks go on, eating with the seasons becomes easier. This is why we will provide all of our members with a list of what to expect in the share sent via e-mail in advance along with many great storage techniques and recipes.
This year's program will be from June 7 - September 20 and will include but is not limited to:
Strawberries, potatoes, onions, turnips, radish, beets, carrots, lettuce, arugula, kale, chard, fennel, leeks, garlic, tomatoes, basil, herbs, eggplant, sweet peppers, hot peppers, cucumbers, squash, beans, okra, melon, winter squash, figs and flowers
