What is Community Supported Agriculture?

A CSA is a way for community members to buy local produce directly from a farm. Every CSA is different although most accommodate their members with weekly “shares” of seasonal produce directly from a farm. Customers buy or invest in a membership or subscription and receive a weekly share of vegetable or fruits, although other farm products may be included.  With flexibility and seasonal variations, it is a way to link people to their food and their local community.

 

Why is a CSA program beneficial for small farms and farmers?

  • Your membership fee decreases the amount of money we need to pay for amendments, seeds, labor and project materials to prepare us for the upcoming season’s bounty.
  • Your support encourages us to continue sustainable land stewardship. Our sustainable and organic practices include crop rotation and cover crops to assure healthy produce, soil tilth and productivity.
  • Your trust cultivates a valuable relationship between us, the consumer and the producer. Just as you know your doctor, hair stylist and yoga teacher, you should know your farmer!
 

What should you expect?

  • The freshest local produce brought to you straight from our field on Sauvie Island. From tomatoes to pumpkins, you'll receive the best our farm has to offer, each and every week of the season.
  • A newsletter with recipes, photos and happenings from the farm.
  • The possibility of adding on to your CSA each week, including our own flowers, as well as preserves like chutneys and jams.
  • To save time because your produce is already harvested and ready to pick-up.
  • To save money compared to buying it retail at the store or Farmer’s Market.
  • To cultivate a connection with the natural world, as you too are along for the expected and unexpected weather that is a reality to farming and growing fresh food in the Willamette Valley!
  • To contribute to a vibrant local economy while helping to sustain our small farm operation.
