AGRICULTURE. COMMUNITY. EDUCATION.
- Produce with a Purpose ~ Eat Well, Support Local Farmers, Fund Education
Raise money for your school programs while enjoying the freshest, local produce. When you join the CSA, money will be returned to your schools' PTA as a donation. ($25 per half share and $50 per full share) Some organizations are using this program to increase their budget and others are using the profits as a means to give back. Either way, we believe this partnership will help grow your PTA visions as well as our health initiatives. Contact us to have your school added to the list.
What is a CSA?
A CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture has become a popular way for consumer to buy local, seasonal food directly from the farmer. In this mutual partnership, the farmer offers “shares” of produce for the consumer to purchase eliminating the middle man. It is known as a "subscription" for fresh produce.
What can I expect in my CSA?
8-10 different vegetable and fruit selections each week (Half shares are also available). Add farm fresh eggs, local meat, farm fresh cheeses, local breads, farm made pickles, cider and jams to your order any week.
Do I pick up my CSA share or is it delivered/shipped?
It is your choice! Our current pick-up location is on the farm in Sykesville, Md.
If you choose to have your CSA delivered, you will be assigned a delivery day based on our driver's routes. All delivery options just require you to leave a cooler on your front porch on your designated day.
