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.
