WHY JOIN A CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The CSA is a relationship between you and the farm (Norwich Meadows Farm in NY State). Unlike shopping at the grocery store for produce each week, you have a direct relationship with your farmer. CSA members pay in advance for a share of the upcoming harvest and are ensured high-quality local produce, and the farm is ensured a consistent and secure market. Everything in the weekly CSA share is grown with great care (and love) on our Certified Organic fields, and delivered to your neighborhood drop-off point just hours after harvest.
Your support helps small local farms stay afloat.
Connect with the food you eat by meeting your farmers and exploring the farms.
Buy the freshest food for your family.
Explore new foods and learn to cook with them.
Eat more fresh vegetables and fruit.
Share healthy eating habits with your kids. Expose them early to a variety of regional produce.
Protect the Environment
Support farmers who take care of their land by growing food in ways that take care of the soil.
Cut down on the number of miles your food travels from the farm to your plate.
When a community comes together weekly to share in the harvest a community is formed. Our pick-up site become a weekly meet-up for swapping recipes, stories, and even produce! CSA members also make a connection with their farmers, bringing them closer to their food.
While a CSA subscription may feel like a lot of money up front, you end up only spending around $27 per week for fresher than fresh vegetables, lasting longer than store-bought produce, leading to less waste.
