Whether you are a farmer or a consumer, a CSA is all about the community. Community Supported Agriculture is a way for consumers to buy locally grown seasonal produce directly from the farmer. Each member of a CSA pays the farmer for their produce upfront in the beginning of the season when the direct expenses of farm inputs, seeds, compost, feed, etc. are the highest and income the lowest. In return the consumer receives a weekly share of the farm’s production at a reduced price. Both the farmer and the consumer agree to share in the risks and rewards of the farming enterprise.
Rising Vitality Farm will begin offering CSA shares this fall for the 2016 season and we are looking forward to meeting our neighbors and working for them to produce fresh certified organic produce, eggs, chicken and turkey for their table. Details will be posted in the future so stay tuned, but know this I will prioritize my CSA reserving my very best for the members, because this is the direction my heart is sending me. I want a closer connection to you, the ones who want to eat the very best quality produce available. Here’s to your health!
