Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to connect people and the farmers who grow their food. Each makes a commitment to the other. With your farm share, you purchase a season’s worth of produce in advance. We, in turn, commit to giving you the best of the diversity of what we can grow each week.
Each week, starting in mid-May, you will receive a box filled with freshly harvested produce from our fields. The contents vary from week to week as the seasons change. In May and June, strawberries and greens are the all-stars of the boxes. Then cucumbers, spring peas and tender summer squash take the lead. Tomatoes take the pride of place in July. August is eggplant, peppers and melons. And fall brings a return to nutritious greens and winter squash.
Each box has 8 or more different types of produce so as long with the above vegetables, we include one or more staples: onions, potatoes, carrots, lettuce. Honey from our hives and sorghum also make their appearances through out the season. For a more complete picture of what goes in each box, check out our last years weekly harvest. The shares are designed to feed two dedicated adult vegetable eaters or a family of four.
We will offer 60 CSA memberships in 2017 with pick up times scheduled for Wednesday afternoons at River Arts District Farmers’ Market and Saturday mornings at the North Asheville Tailgate Market at UNCA.
