CSA – defined

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

In basic terms, CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes spiritually, the community’s farm. The growers and consumers provide mutual support and share in the risks and benefits of food production.

How does your CSA work?

When you become a member of Sylvan Hill Farm, you receive one regular or large share per week starting sometime between the first and third week of June, depending upon the season’s weather. The season continues through the end of September or early October. That’s 17 weeks!

A regular share is like a full grocery bag of fresh, locally-grown, organic produce every week – more than enough to feed a family of four. Eat what you want now — and can or freeze your bounty so that you will continue to enjoy delicious food throughout the winter.

If that seems like too much food, consider splitting a share with a neighbor. It’s cost effective and a great way to connect.
