Frequently asked questions
What is CSA?
How does the CSA model benefit the community and economy?
How does eating “seasonally” benefit the environment?
What does “eating seasonally” mean? It means you buy foods that are being grown and harvested locally right now. It does not mean buying “fresh” green beans in January when you live in New England shipped in from far away places
By buying seasonally, you guarantee that the food is local. You’re not harming the environment by shipping the food thousands of miles (with all the carbon footprint that entails). You also are guaranteeing that you get the freshest, most nutritious, and tastiest food available.
What is a customizable CSA share?
Fees for Customizable Shares allow us to basically cover our extra costs associated with the packing for each individual member share.
What are the benefits of CSA?
Eating high nutritionally dense organic food fuel your body best. It reduces stress and detoxifies all those competing poisons from our air, water, and general environment. A healthy body wards off the typical ailments common to our high-paced culture, resulting in more productivity and a heightened sense of well-being. It exchanges poor food choices & lifestyle habits for lifelong significant behavioral decisions regarding caring for our most important asset: our health. Physical, Emotional, Psycho-spiritual
CSA programs enable conscientious food producers to continue to grow excellent quality produce of all kinds in a manner that is in harmony with the cycles of natural intent and driven by quality. It provides local and sustainable work for residents who need a job and a purpose in delivering good towards their fellow citizen. CSA’s discourages factory-like food production driven only by price and practicality. This leads to long-term ill-health of body, mind, soul, and the harming of our earth created for our benefit.
