Robinette Farms CSA
Community Supported Agriculture
What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farming model in which consumers purchase food directly from the farmers who grow it. In the spring, CSA members pay in advance for a share of the food to be grown during the upcoming season. Members share in the bounty of productive seasons, as well as the risk of less abundant years.
By investing in our farm each year, members help ensure the ongoing presence of their local farm in the community, and become connected with their food and the people who grow it.
You have your family doctor, your dentist, even your mechanic; shouldn’t you have your farmer too?
How it Works at Robinette Farms
Spring is a time of fresh greens! Lighten up your diet and get the freshest of the season for 8 weeks, beginning in early April through the end of May.
Our Spring CSA will be heavy on greens and light on roots. There isn't as much diversity as we would all like this time of year, but if you are craving fresh greens and sweet radishes, this is the share for you!
Members receive their weekly share of produce typical for that time of year, grown on our farm, and harvested by us. Each week, you pick up your share at one of three locations, The Farm in Martell, Leon's Gourmet Grocer in Lincoln or at Good Life Fitness in Lincoln, giving you a chance to meet with your farmers and socialize with other members.
Enjoy the bountiful fall in Nebraska and extend your seasonal eating right up until Christmas! Robinette Farms offers an 8 week Fall CSA starting in late October through the middle of December.
Robinette Farms partners with Gelato To Go, to offer a Gelato Club. June through October, members pick up a monthly share of 2 pints of handcrafted artisan gelato made right here in Lincoln. Some of the flavor choices will be based on produce from Robinette Farms, as well as other locally grown ingredients.
Share the Bounty
We partner with The Gathering Place, a program through the Community Action Partnership, to help provide fresh, healthy vegetables to those in need. We match every dollar you donate to bring high quality, nutrient rich foods to all members of our community. If you join the CSA, you can support the program in $10 increments when you checkout.

Members receive the freshest possible organically produced foods directly from the farmers you know. You become an active participant in the farm through interacting with us at CSA pickups, participating in farm field days, CSA-only events, farm tours, connecting with us through our website and Facebook page, and reading our weekly newsletters, which include recipes, news from the farm and other interesting information.
Farming is risky business, and CSA Members' direct investment in sustainable agriculture helps guarantee the presence of small, diversified family farms in our community.
