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.

Each week, baskets will include a diverse selection of vegetables, herbs, or fruits depending on what's in season. By registering, you commit to receiving your chosen weekly basket for the duration of the season and understand that the quantity and diversity of produce will be influenced by environmental conditions throughout the season.
