CSA – Community Supported Agriculture

  • Salad Mix

What’s a CSA? Why is ours Unique?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture; we view this as a community effort to keep our friends, family and land healthy. The less your food travels the better it is for everything and everyone. A CSA allows you to budget your food costs as well as to easily plan for your week, we send out weekly emails with the upcoming weeks share as well as recipes!

Our Farm is now offering a unique style of CSA, called our Market Choice CSA!

How it works: Every week you will still get a list of veggies that will be in your share but if you see something you might not want that week you can trade it for something else at pick-up. This is only available at the Montpelier Buch Spieler Records store and at the Burlington Farmers Market. We will have extra for folks to trade in every week spring, summer, fall, and winter as best we can each week. We want our farm members to have the best local food that they need each week! Our CSA members truly support and guide our farm as it grows and develops so we want to empower you to have it become the best it can be for you. We offer our Market Choice CSA at our pick up locations only. Any of our group or business drops we are unable to, however you are welcome to swing by one of our pick up locations and trade some veggies!

You can expect to save at least 15%-25% off our normal retail prices with joining our CSA. We hope to share the abundance of delicious fresh farm veggies with you and your family year-around!
