What is Community Supported Agriculture or CSA?

 

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a consumer based movement which allows families to directly access farm fresh produce, while simultaneously supporting sound agriculture practices and the local economy.

How much does it cost for a share?

An annual share costs $200.00. For every share purchased by April 15th you will receive an additional $25.00 shopping credit towards our products. If you buy 2 shares that is $450.00 you will have to shop at our farm stands. You will receive a Gift Card with your CSA value to use at our farm stands. 

 

 What if I don't use all of my shares?

Your "Gift Card" balance will not expire, carries over to the following year.

If you have questions, call us at 207-832-4488.
