CSA Information & Sign Up

Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a food partnership that allows you to support local farmers while enjoying seasonal produce. Members buy a share of the anticipated harvest and receive produce in regular instalments throughout the season. By purchasing a share ahead of time, farmers receive their financial inputs when they are preparing for the season ahead. Being part of a CSA share will connect you to your food and community like never before.

We are now sold out of vegetable baskets for 2017. Please check back to learn about registration for 2018!
