CSA Box Program

CSA Programs

What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture, often shortened to CSA, is a prepaid subscription to a farm’s produce for the season. Most CSAs give shareholders a weekly supply of veggies, herbs, fruits and sometimes even eggs and meat. You know it’s fresh and you get to meet the farm and people who grew your food! The prepaid CSA arrangements also makes it a source of financial security for the farmer. Some CSAs also incorporate farm workdays for shareholders. Pickup days vary by farm and some offer pickups at a VFM location.

CSAs have been very popular recently. Be sure to sign up early before subscriptions are filled! A subscription to a CSA makes a great gift. Here are some of our vendors who have CSA programs in 2016. Contact them directly for more information.
