What is a CSA?

A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a program in which members buy a "share" of the year's harvest before the season begins. This arrangement provides unique advantages for the grower and the consumer. The CSA model began in Europe by housewives looking for access to local, fresh vegetables and has expanded quickly in the United States over the past 25 years.The growers are assured a degree of certainty in marketing their produce, and consumers have a direct source for their fresh vegetable needs, all while contributing to the local economy and sound land management principles.

At Anderson Organics, we have three options available for 2020 shares:

  • 12 Week Summer Season CSA Share runs from Tuesday June 9--Tuesday August 25. 
  • 8 week Fall Share from Tuesday September 1-Tuesday October 20
  • 4 week Winter Storage Share November with pickups Tuesday November 10 and November 24

Members purchase a share at the beginning of the season enabling the farm to cover expenses for the upcoming season. Beginning in June they will receive a box of produce weekly for 12 weeks. Each share box features the best of 6-10 popular varieties from the nearly 100 veggies and herbs we grow on the farm. A week's box is roughly equivalent to 1 grocery sacks of vegetables and will furnish a family of four for the week. The beginning of the season will focus on leafy greens and herbs, and as the season progresses, the boxes will get heavier as fruiting crops and root vegetables begin to ripen.
