Subscription Farming, Community Supported Agriculture or CSA is an innovative concept
connecting local farms with local consumers. By providing a direct link between
the production and consumption of food it creates a mutually supportive partnership
between a community of supporters and a farm.
Our members as consumers have the benefit of a regional food supply: Eating within
the seasons, higher nutritional values, maximum flavor and freshness from fresh organic
produce that has been picked ripe, and usually harvested no more than the day before
delivery. They become reconnected to the land and to the people who grow their food.
As farmers we benefit by having committed and familiar customers who develop a long-term
interest in our farm. Our members financial commitments allow us to focus on growing
rather than marketing our diverse selection of crops.
Helping to sustain local small farms helps to preserve the landscape of a community,
strengthens local economies by keeping food dollars in local communities as well
as promoting a more energy efficient society.
The consumer commits to and buys a share of the farms' harvest at the beginning of
the growing season, in return, the farm commits to providing, to the best of our
ability, a diet of fresh nutritious, in-season vegetables and fruits weekly throughout
our growing season. The consumer has the satisfaction of knowing where their food
comes from, how it is grown and the farmers who grow it.
