You don't just get a box of veggies.
You get to be part of something bigger.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is based on a sturdy relationship between eaters and growers that embraces the risks and rewards of farming. In a CSA, you buy a “share” of the farm’s harvest for that season.
As a CSA member, you make this commitment early on, when we farmers are making plans and buying supplies, and we return the favour throughout the summer and autumn months in the form of farm-grown produce.
This community support allows us as farmers to put 110% of our energy into growing lots of great food knowing that there are household fridges just waiting to be filled.
As a CSA members, you trust your farmer to provide to the best of their abilities and your CSA farmer relies on all of their members to be appreciative, understanding, and supportive through thick and thin. In a year of drought, you may enjoy an abundance tomato salads with few heads of lettuce to be seen.
By putting money directly into the hands of your local farmer, you are having a voice in your local food system, the future of farmland, and the health of your community.
Plus, we’ve been told by our members that it tastes pretty good too!
