What is a CSA?
Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and consumers. In short: people buy "shares" of a farm's harvest in advance and then receive a portion of the crops as they're harvested. Our CSA program is for a 16 week period. When you become a member you will have 2 options.
Receive a box valued at $15 once a week for 16 weeks.
The membership fee will be required at sign-up.
