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 winter and 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. In 2013, we were able to secure lending to buy our farm because of guaranteed income from our CSA.

 

Farming is risky business, and CSA Members' direct investment in sustainable agriculture helps guarantee the presence of small, diversified family farms in our community.

You have your family doctor, your dentist, even your mechanic, shouldn’t you have your farmer too?
 

 The Basics 

Our Farm becomes Yours

 

Members receive the freshest possible Certified Organic foods produced directly from our farm, 15 miles south of Lincoln. 

 

This provides you with the unique opportunity to understand exactly what went into the production of the food you consume: where the seed came from, who planted it, how it was irrigated, who weeded it, harvested it, washed it and delivered it to you!
