About our CSA Veggie Boxes
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is also known as ‘subscription farming.’ You purchase a subscription from a local farmer just like you would subscribe to a local newspaper or magazine. But rather than receiving a magazine each week, you receive a ‘share’ of the week’s freshest vegetables.
CSA Shares provide much more than just weekly produce. They give you the opportunity to become involved in the ecological and human community that supports the local farm.
About your CSA Share
Our CSA season runs from June through September with an option to extend through November with a Fall Share . Starting in June you can pick up a box filled with seasonal veggies grown right here on the farm! Each box contains 10 different seasonal items (Check out our 'What's Growing in 2019' List). Each week we aim to include one of our gourmet salad blends, the Mighty Mix (microgreen mix), a cooking green (kale, chard or Chef's Mix), a head of lettuce/cabbage and then six other seasonal vegetables. We strive for variety in our shares.
We will provide a weekly e-newsletter with updates from the farm, an explanation of everything in your box and some suggestions on how to use all your vegetables.
Becoming a CSA member with Mighty Greens Farm is an opportunity to find a connection with your community, a connection with the land that provides your food and a connection to the folks that grow your food. We welcome our members to the farm so that they can enjoy life on the farm!
We will have a CSA Kick-Off Potluck at the farm on Sunday June 9th. Get to know your farmers, meet your fellow CSA members and have a good time! In order to encourage more connection amongst our members we will also have a closed Facebook group for our members to share how they are using their vegetables.
