What is a CSA?

CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a way for local families to connect with the farmers who are producing their food. When you purchase a farm share before the season begins, you support the farm , providing the farmer the ability to buy seeds, till the soil, and plant the crops. In exchange for your share purchase, the farm grows, cultivates, and carefully harvests the freshest, tastiest produce, which is provided to you each week throughout the season. In essence, you become a member of the farm community.

Advantages of joining a CSA:

Purchasing a membership provides you with a weekly supply of freshly harvested, seasonal vegetables for the entire season (that’s 18 weeks at Leaning Birch Farm). As each new variety matures, CSA Members are among the first to know it will be available for sale at our farmstand or other markets. Also, members can purchase discounted gift cards to use on any additional produce they purchase.

As people continue to become more conscious of the importance of eating high quality, healthy food, they are finding more value in knowing not only how and where their food is produced, but knowing WHO is producing it, as well. We at Leaning Birch Farm feel very strongly that the more natural our food is, the better it is for us and the better tasting it is!
