Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Community Supported Agriculture?

A: Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) was created as a way for the buying community to become an integral part of the agricultural community by pre-purchasing shares to help with the farmer’s annual start-up and maintenance costs. The direct benefit to the farmer is capital during the “off season”, a time of year when there is no product to sell and no cash flow. Essentially, instead of the bank getting interest on our “loan,” CSA members receive it in the form of fresh healthy produce! The benefits of membership include not only a modest discount on this year’s finest crops; you’ll also be contributing to the sustainability of our farm in the most direct sense. We believe community involvement is part of being sustainable. Our practices, such as hiring local employees, reflect this value. Your participation completes the circle. Together we’re keeping our “green” dollars in the local economy.

Q: What can I expect to receive in my weekly share and when do I pick it up?

A: In fact, there is no weekly share or pickup. You simply use your pre-purchased credit to purchase any items you choose, from the farm stand and greenhouses, during regular business hours: 9am-6pm daily. This allows you the freedom to shop as you wish.

Q: Why a discount?

A: When you become a member, you are investing in the Farm and, in effect, the discount is really a percentage return on your investment. The return decreases if you choose to purchase a share later because the Farm’s start-up costs must be obtained earlier in the season.
