In exchange for their financial support, our CSA provides members with fresh vegetables weekly for 18 weeks of the growing season. Becoming a member creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown, and those who grow it. This mutually supportive relationship, between the farm and the community members, helps to create an economically stable farm operations. Belonging to a farm is a commitment designed to create a deeper relationship to your food, the seasons of nature and those that are directly involved with caring for the land.
