Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a model for farming built around the mutual commitment between farmers and eaters who share a vision for a more sustainable, just and vibrant local food system.  For the farmer, a CSA establishes a community of consumers dedicated to supporting their farm for the entire season, giving the farmer the security to purchase seeds, fertilizer and hire staff at the beginning of the season.  The consumer gets the first pick at what’s fresh that week and a relationship with their food that extends beyond the supermarket.

what's the cost?

We Because our shares are fully customizable and you are only charged for exactly what you get, we are not suggesting any upfront payments this season. 

We are leaving it up to you to pre-pay what you wish or simply put an electronic form of payment on-file for weekly charges when your order is placed.  If you choose to load credit on your account with a credit card or check, any orders will be deducted from your account credit.  Otherwise, your credit card or eCheck information will be charged weekly for what you order.

However, for either share size the minimum order is only $15 and you may put your share on hold as many times as you’d like, so each family will spend a different amount.
