Looking for a source of fresh, local vegetables? You've found it! A CSA is a fantastic way to purchase your garden vegetables. CSA stands for Communuty Supported Agriculture. The idea behind it, is that you purchase a 'share' and every week you receive vegetables throughout the growing season. The community supports their farmer by pledging to purchase vegetables from them for the entire season. This allows the farmer to plan ahead and grow exactly the right amount of produce for the number of customers that signed up.
Many CSA's charge upfront for the entire season. However, experience with hail and snow storms, has illustrated that it's easier to break payment up into monthly segments. This allows you to budget, and in the event of a catastrophic crop failure, you won't be paying for produce you won't be receiving.
We strive to keep everything as stress free as possible. Is it better for you to leave a cooler out before you go to work? We'll fill that up with vegetables for you! Or, would you prefer to have it delivered to you at work? We do that too! We strongly believe that everyone should have access to fresh, local vegetables. Many people can't make it to a farmers market, or they don't like the hustle and bustle of fighting through crowds. A CSA offers you peace of mind and fresh vegetables, without the hassle.
The best thing about supporting a CSA (other than getting fantastic produce every week) is that you get to meet your farmer face to face. Any questions that you may have, can be answered right away and you get to experience farm life through your delivery and your monthly newsletter.
In conjunction with our CSA Share, we also offer a Veggies on Wheels option. It allows people the freedom to choose which vegetables they would like each week, and also to skip the odd week. Each Monday you will get either a text or an email from me outlining what is available and their prices for that week. You send me your choices and on Thursday, you will get your vegetables delivered to your door! At the end of each month, I will send you an invoice for that month's vegetables. I've found the freedom offered by this choice to be a bit hit!
