Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) represents a partnership between local communities and farmers where members share in the benefits, risks and overall experience of local food production. As a participant in our CSA program, shareholders receive fresh vegetables every Wednesday for 18 weeks of the growing season. Becoming a member promotes a cycle of social responsibility and ecological stewardship; it links individuals to people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown, and the farmers who grow it. This mutually supportive relationship helps create economic sustainability in our farming operation and our local community. Participation in a CSA program is an active commitment that connects people to local, healthful food.
Why join our CSA?
Be healthy. The Hunts Brook Farm CSA will provide your family with nutrient rich,
fresh vegetables grown naturally with love and care. We practice mindful soil management by ensuring that our crops have all the natural supplements they need to be as healthy as possible.
Connect with your food. Learn how your food is grown and handled. Know and trust the people that do it. Eat seasonally and cook wholesome meals.
Support social consciousness. Revitalize the essential links among individuals, our farms and our communities. Educate individuals and the next generation about the importance of staying connected to the earth and the sustenance that it provides us.
Create a lasting sanctuary. Help sustain Hunts Brook Farm as it continues to be a nourishing place for people to live, work, and visit.
Build community. This year, we are excited to create an opportunity for members and the community at large to come together to share ides, recipes, and fun. For the 2013 season, we will be hosting community nights on the farm with live music and our new wood-fired pizza oven!
