WHAT IS CSA?
What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
Like the name suggests, a CSA membership gives community members the chance to have a direct relationship with their farmers and the land where their food is grown. A CSA membership works like a farm subscription. Members pay in advance to pick up a weekly box of carefully selected, organically grown vegetables and herbs for 20 weeks. In turn, we the farmers are given a reliable market and the chance to cultivate relationships with members to share recipes, workshops, and community events.
Why a box share?
The box share model is a safe and convenient way to
guarantee your household access to local, organically grown produce all season long. Unlike other CSA shares, our box
shares are pre-packed boxes that you can grab from a
convenient pick-up location in the North Berkshires. Boxes are curated to include produce and herbs that you can cook
together, making weekly meal planning easier and centered
around local, seasonal ingredients. You can see samples of
boxes throughout the seasons here. We offer convenient
pick-up locations in downtown North Adams, Williamstown,
and Adams that make our CSA shares more accessible to
members who can't access transportation to the farm.
What else comes with the CSA?
Being a CSA member means being part of our farm community. Every week members receive an email about what is in that week's box, including recipes and storage tips for every item along with pictures and updates from the fields. Getting a box share means that we curate the produce you receive and help you learn how to store and cook it. Never had fennel before? No problem! Don't know the best way to keep basil fresh? We've got you.
CSA members also have access to the farm and farmers for tours, potlucks, and learning about what no-till farming means. CSA members are also the first customers to learn about specials for canning and pickling projects. You truly can eat like a farmer!
