CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture is a direct partnership between the farm and its consumers. Typically, the consumer (or shareholder) pays the farm ahead of time in exchange for a ‘share’ or weekly box containing products from the farm.  Prepayment to the farm ensures that there is much needed incoming cashflow for seeds, equipment, and labor throughout the offseason.  In exchange, the farm provides shareholders with a weekly box of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables.

Crops for the winter may include things such as: Garlic, Cippolini Onion, Shallots, Scallions, Beets (Red, White, Forono, Gold, White, Badger, Chioggia), Cabbages (Caraflex, Green, Napa, Red), Carrots (Orange, Kyoto, Purple, White, Yellow), Celery Root, Parsley, Cilantro, Celery, Sunchokes, Kohlrabi, Potatoes (Red, Blue, Yukon Gold, Russet, Fingerings), Sweet Potato, Radish (Black, Watermelon, Japanese, Daikon, Green Meat, Bordeaux), Parsnips, Rutabaga, Turnips (Japanese, Hinona Kabu, Red).   We may also partner with other farms and producers that we work and whose growing practices we approve of.  These are items such as Jerky, Mushrooms, Apples, Cheese, Fermented Products (Pickles, Kraut, KimChi), and more!
