What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) allows people like you to invest in a local farm in exchange for a portion of the harvest from that farm. At Harvest of Joy Farm LLC, CSA members pay a lump sum at the beginning of each growing season and then receive weekly shares of produce throughout the season, as well as opportunities to learn about the farm and enjoy its land. Our relationship with our CSA members helps us to run our farm efficiently since we can plan, plant, and harvest with our members in mind.
Should You Join a CSA?
When you become a CSA member at Harvest of Joy Farm LLC, you join a community of folks dedicated to the long-term success of our farm. By sharing the risks inherent in each growing season (such as unpredictable weather and pest and disease cycles), you make it possible for us to farm using methods that enrich rather than deplete the ecosystem we share. You also contribute to the sustainability of our local economy and reduce your carbon footprint by purchasing food grown close to home.
CSA memberships aren’t for everyone, but if you enjoy fresh, seasonal produce, have a sense of culinary adventure, and crave a deeper connection to the land on which your food is grown, then a CSA membership might be right for you.
2017 CSA Membership Program
We are taking a sabbatical from our CSA share program in 2017 to work on improving our farm’s infrastructure and efficiency. We plan to return to offering CSA shares in 2018.
