What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it means that you become a shareholder in what is being done on the farm. By purchasing a CSA, you are buying a share of the crops that we grow. Purchasing a CSA share is a great way to get the highest quality, locally grown produce at an affordable price. It is also a wonderful way to support a successful, small family farm that adheres to practices that have the health of our land and our customers in mind. The respectful approach to farming that’s practiced means that our land and environment will be safe for many generations to come.
