CSA Frequently Asked Questions
How does Community Supported Agriculture work?
Community Supported Agriculture is about forging a direct relationship between food producers and food consumers. To participate, one purchases a CSA “share” in the farm prior to the growing season. A CSA share is similar to a subscription, but instead of getting a newspaper or magazine each week, you get fresh, locally produced, organic food. During the growing season, shareholders come to the farm each week to pick up their freshly harvested produce.
The whole family is encouraged to come to the weekly pickup, as you will get to see the farm and how it’s growing, learn about seasonal availability of different veggies, and get recipes and tips on how to turn your share into a week’s worth of meals for you and your family. New for 2013: kid-friendly activities, cooking demonstrations, and more at pickup!
What if I’ll be out of town or on vacation during the CSA season?
Just give us notice in advance that you’d like a friend or neighbor to pick up your share that week. Or, if that’s not convenient, you can choose to donate your share of veggies that week to another family. Please let us know what your preference is.
