Community Supported Agriculture
Are you looking to support a local farmer and get the freshest produce possible? You might be interested in CSA.
What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. When you become a CSA member, you are purchasing a "share" of produce from our farm. Every week during the farming season you receive a box of what's in season at the farm. When we have a surplus you receive extra produce. When we have a crop failure you don't receive that crop. You share the bounty AND the risk. This allows you to develop a closer relationship with our farm and learn more about how your food is grown.
Duration: June through October (21 weeks)
Pick Up: Thursdays, 9-4pm, at the North Coast Food Web building
or at our booth at the Astoria Sunday Market
