CSA allows community residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers.

 

When you become a member of our CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from our farm.  Weekly from July to October, we'll deliver your produce to a farmers market near you for your pick up convenience. Pick up locations are currently on Wednesday at the Spotsylvania Farmer's Market at the regional medical center at  4600 Spotsylvania Pkwy, Fredericksburg, VA 22408 from 2pm to 5:30pm and on Sunday at the Carytown Farmer's Market at 3201 W Cary St, Richmond, VA 23221 from 11am to 2:30pm.

 

 As a CSA member, you will always be “first in line” for our newest and limited availability crops. CSA members and farmers share the risk and rewards with living closely with nature! That means if a pest damages the peppers, then we'll not have any peppers for that share likewise if we have abundance of tomatoes or zucchini then we'll share that with you as well! Good news and gracefully we grow a wide variety and specialty produce, meaning your share will be diverse and bountiful and we'll strive to always accommodate your needs. 

Shares usually include 7-10 types of vegetables, enough for a family of 3-4 people.
