Description: CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a partnership between the growers of good food and the people who like to eat it. As a member of our CSA, you support the young farmers of the Folk Art Guild by paying for 5 months of food in the winter. Then, throughout the growing season, you receive a share of our produce once a week and get to experience the joys of fresh, delicious food carefully grown using sustainable and environmentally responsible methods.Becoming a member of our CSA is a way to share in the bounty and the risks of vegetable growing. It is also a great way to get connected with your food and form nourishing relationships with a community that values the work and careful attention that goes into growing food. Youll get to know the people who grow your food and care about the health of you and your family, and youll have the opportunity to come out to the farm and experience the fun and hard work of growing food for yourself!
