Community Supported Agriculture
Our subscription program, known as community supported agriculture (CSA), creates a relationship of mutual support and commitment between the farmer and the community. Your annual fee covers the production costs of the farm; in exchange you receive a share of the harvest. CSA programs help keep small farms like ours in business by giving us capital to cover some of the farm expenses we face early in the season. Community supported agriculture allows individuals and families to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce.
Our 2018 Summer CSA Program
Our 2018 CSA runs from Tuesday May 1 through November 13 for a total of 29 weeks. Share size options are small $25/week, medium $30/week and large $40/week. If you sign up and pay for your CSA share before March 1, you will receive a free bonus CSA box on April 24. You will be able to customize your weekly box of fresh vegetables. We send out a weekly order form via email every Sunday that contains everything that is available from our farm for the week. Please select your choices and email it back to us. We do include the option to select the mixed farm box for the week, but most of our customers prefer to select each item that goes into their box. The amount you order each week is based on the size of your share. If you are out of town you can donate your veggies to the food bank or take a credit and order extra veggies later in the season. To sign up for our CSA please go to the sign up page.
By subscribing to Farmhouse Organics CSA you will:
• Build a personal connection with your food, the land on which it was produced, and the farmers who planted and picked it.
• Enjoy delicious, nutritious produce grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
• Help maintain productive local farmland as open space.
• Know your food dollars support a local farm rather than pay for long-distance shipping, packaging, and refrigeration.
Our goal is to make our CSA a great experience for all of our members!
