What is a csa

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system by which consumers become shareholders of a local farm to share its risks and rewards.

Our CSA members are the backbone of our farms. Your support gets us growing in the Spring and your enthusiasm sustains us throughout the season. In return, we share the bounty of our harvest.

Each share purchased is an investment in our farm season and our farming community. In stark contrast to money spent at chain grocery stores, your share purchases do double-duty by kickstarting our farming season and, at the same time, contributing to our region’s economy. The farmer buys a drink at the local pub; the pub owner gets a car tune-up at the local mechanic; the mechanic needs a haircut; the barber buys veggies from the farmer — where your participation quadruples its value by bouncing back and forth around Lakeland instead of getting sucked into a box-store CEO’s pocket.

The BIG IDEA is simple: Working together and with your help, we small farms can provide enough food to meet the demand and standards of our communities. We like to think we’re modeling a new economy of collaboration. If you’d like to chat more about how this all works, or how we spend your money, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are dedicated to transparency.
