What is a CSA?

Membership in our Community-Supported Agriculture program (CSA) invites you to share in the joys of our growing season. With a face-to-face market-style pickup of the best, freshest produce and a weekly, seasonal newsletter with recipes and tips, we’ll keep you well-fed and in-the-know.

Your choice to join the Green Wagon Farm CSA will change the way you live. It will connect you to the land in a new way; you’ll forge a relationship with farmers and with soil, and you’ll lend your growers peace of mind, with your upfront commitment to eating the harvest.

Membership in our CSA is a promise you make for at least the entirety of one summer season (June through October or monthly for our Year-Round option). Your CSA puts you directly in contact with the people growing your food and with the landscape from which your food comes. Throughout the season, you will learn to prepare unfamiliar vegetables, and you will be introduced to new ways of cooking and preservation.

Your loyalty, trust, and support allows us to do what we do best and work to continually do better, reminding us by your weekly presence, for whom we work and why. Your promise will allow us to see the sunrise each morning, to enjoy a positive and stimulating workplace, to express ourselves creatively in our crop production, and to follow our high ideals pertaining to creation care.

Our CSA model has evolved slightly each season here at Green Wagon Farm as we do our best to strike a balance between what is practical and pleasurable, both for our farmers and for our members. Each season we do our best to hone our planting and harvest schedules to ensure a weekly variety and abundance of work and food.

This season (2018) we are expanding our offerings to include six new share sizes and weekly custom shares; starting in May, you can design your own share at pickup, choosing from 15-20 available items. Crops will vary seasonally and there will be some limits to certain items, but much more flexibility overall, allowing you to try lesser-known veggies at your own leisure.

We hope this new system feeds our community better. We hope it helps reduce waste, guilt, and confusion, while still providing the best, nutritious herbs and veggies out there.

Thank you so much for your interest in our work and your support of locally grown food. We couldn’t do this without you.

Sincerely,
Your Farmers
