Community Supported Agriculture
What is a CSA?
When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of food from a regional farm. The farm then delivers to a location for pick up at locations around the area. Basic shares on average include 7-10 types of vegetables, plenty for a small family. Most CSA’s have options for larger households or offer items like fruit or meat as well.
How do I join?
Members have payment options including installments or one time payment. Early payments help the farm directly by purchasing seed, equipment maintenance and more.
Shares need to be picked up at Old Barn Market by 6PM on the day of delivery to ensure freshness. If you are unable to pick up your share, please call us before 6:00. We will hold your share if space permits. We are not responsible for holding, and will not keep it if you do not call.
