What is a CSA?
CSA stands for ¡°Community Supported Agriculture¡±. In short, it is a partnership between farmers and consumers.
Similar to share-holders in a company, CSA members pay a seasonal fee up front which pays for supplies and labor at the farm. In return,
the member receives an abundant box of beautiful, organically grown vegetables, harvested that very same day, and delivered to
a pick-up point every week. It is a way to support local farming, build community and relationships, and to feed our
bodies with healthy, life-giving food.

 Why Organic?

Studies show that  our world is becoming  more toxic every day.  Conventional farming  methods are also stripping the land of vital nutrients.
 By eating organically, you are eating food that is void of herbicides, pesticides, ground water pollution, or artificial fertilizers.
At the same time, by eating what is locally in season, you body reconnects with the rhythms of nature.
Quite simply, organic food tastes better and is better for you.

One full box is designed to feed a family of four for the week,

A half-box share is also one full box of vegetables;
however, this full box is delivered to the pick-up location
every other week rather than every week.
