What does CSA mean? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. When signing up for a CSA program you're partnering with the farmer, agreeing to share the risks and rewards that come with the growing season. CSA members pay at the beginning of the season for a “share” of the harvest, and in return receive a box of fresh, healthy, organically grown vegetables once a week! An added benefit for us is that we make money during an otherwise slow time of year. The money from CSA sales will go towards buying seeds, compost, soil amendments and various other things.
Do I get to pick what’s in my share each week? At this time, we pick different vegetables each week for the shares. It’s a great way to try new things that you otherwise wouldn’t have bought!
Do you accommodate strict diets/food allergies? We don’t - but we have a suggestion! Partner with a friend or neighbor and split your CSA share with them!
Can I change my pick up location? Mother Nature is wild. We try to keep as much consistency as possible going into the season. In an attempt to keep things as streamlined as possible, please select your pick up day/location carefully - you’re stuck with it for the season ;)
What if I’m unable to pick up my share? Call a friend, neighbor, coworker, acquaintance, or that cute guy you met at the coffee shop last week and have them pick up your share! If you know in advance that you’ll be unable to pick up your share and won’t be able to send someone else we are happy to donate your share to the Food Bank.
When do you harvest the produce in my share? Everything is harvested the day before your pick up day.
