Wait-What the heck IS a CSA, anyway?
Good question! CSA stands for Community Sustained Agriculture. What that means is you, a member of the community, support local and sustainable agriculture in the best way possible- by making a long-term commitment to local eating by purchasing a “share” in a local farm. You pay up front in the Spring for a weekly bag of goodies for the rest of the season. CSAs typically last from Spring through the Fall. Our full share goes from May through November, while our Summer share goes from June through Sept.
14 Acre Farm’s CSA
We offer a selective buffet system. Members get to choose from vegetable groupings and bag their own produce. Members also get two loaves of our fresh bread each week. To help eliminate disposable bag usage, all members are given a reusable 14 Acre Farm bag they can bring back each week. If you’re not sure what something is or how to cook with it, there is always someone around to tell you about it.
We only have one location for our CSA- on the farm. (Sorry, no drop-off points!) Our pickup day is Wednesdays from 4-7pm. To promote farm friendships, we also have a potluck at the same time. Anyone can come to the potluck, even if they’re not a current CSA member. If you play an instrument, bring it! There is nearly always a friendly group of musicians ready to jam, including Free Range Folk.
