Frequently Asked Questions - CSA

What is a CSA?

This is a way for consumers to buy a share of fresh, local, seasonal food directly from the farmer. 
 
What is a share?
 
It's a bag or box of fresh fruits and vegetables that you get weekly for 20 weeks!
 
 
Why buy a share?

Fresh veggies with all of the flavor and vitamin benefits

Exposure to new veggies and new ways of cooking

Farm visits – once a season

Children like food from “their” farm, even if they don’t typically eat that vegetable

Free weekly newsletters, with recipes, tips, and updates on the farm!

Interesting ...

Less produce purchased during those trips

Higher quality produce than that of the grocery store (and it tastes better!)

What if there's something I don't like in my bag?

At this time, we don't have an option to swap for something else. Perhaps try it in a different recipe or give it to someone you think would enjoy it. When planting, we plan for everyone to get one of everything.
