What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a way for members of the community to support their local farmers before the season begins. CSA members pay at the beginning of the season for a share of the years harvest. CSA’s are a great way to  invest in local agriculture and ensure you know exactly where your food comes from.

With each CSA subscription purchased you reserve a share of the harvest. Paying upfront gives the farm an initial financial boost. With that we purchase seeds, soil amendments, equipment, and anything necessary to start the season and ensure success.

Here are some examples of what last season’s weekly boxes included:

About our CSA:

The share runs for 20 weeks: June 1st – October 12th. We value each week’s share at a baseline of $30.00 worth of produce, this way our share holders get extra value for their early support of the farm.

Our share is planned to give our customers a full selection of seasonal New England vegetables. The share starts in June with lots of tender spring crops like crisp salad greens, radishes, turnips, and green onions. As the summer progresses, the share begins to get heavier with classics like summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, and vine ripened tomatoes. The seasons final shares are filled with the last tastes of summer eggplants and peppers and some delicious fall favorites like potatoes, garlic, onions, and winter squash. Overall, our share strives to provide our customers with a good selection of different vegetables each week.

CSA Pick Up:

Share pick-ups are held every Tuesday 1:00PM – 6:00PM at the Seaview Farmstand.

We ask that all share members remember to pick up their share or let us know beforehand if they can’t make it, we can then hold onto the share for you or donate it that week to area Food Pantries.
