What is CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a model of farming in which the farmer sells harvest shares to customers prior to the start of the season. Shares are then delivered incrementally to members throughout the season – in our case, on a weekly or alternating week basis (in some locations).

CSAs allow the community to support the farmer by paying up front, which greatly eases the heavy start-of-season expenses and allows farmers to more efficiently and effectively plan and grow the crops. In return, the farmer is committed to the members to bring them the highest quality produce possible throughout the season.

CSA members receive a share of the harvest each week throughout the season - that means really fresh, local, in-season food! We grow a wide range of high-quality vegetables, and an even wider range of unique and heritage varieties of fruit. Our goal is quality and flavor, and we work hard to bring you the best possible produce every week.

We offer two different share types:

Shares are available throughout the season at a variety of pickup locations throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, plus northern Delaware and Maryland.
