What is a CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It represents a beautiful relationship where the farmers know who they are feeding and the customers know the farmer! Customers are more than just consumers–they are members of the CSA who commit to supporting the local farm by buying a share of vegetables at the start of the season. Then, each week throughout the season, the members come to the farm and get their share of the vegetables that were harvested that week! This is the best way to get the freshest, healthiest vegetables, without having to grow them yourself! It is also an amazing way to build up the local community by working with the environment!
Good Soil Farm LLC’s CSA…
Our CSA is unique–not only is it our goal to build up the community of people, animals, plants, and soil microbes, but we also strive to build up the culture.
We do this by bringing traditions, old and new, to our CSA members as well as the broader community with events such as the St. John the Baptist Vigil Bonfire in June and our Michaelmas Harvest Celebration in September.
The CSA has been very productive, and the quality (and quantity) of the produce has been beyond satisfactory. It’s also a great example to my family about how our assumptions of the world around us shape how we treat things. Specifically, the regenerative agricultural approach relies on cooperation with the environment as a steward rather than exploiting it as a master. Philosophy aside, the CSA has been a great investment for my family and I’d encourage you to try it out or reach out to the farmers if you have any questions about the CSA.
