CSA is the short for Community Supported Agriculture - a partnership between the farmer and the community. CSA members pay in advance at the beginning of the growing season for their season's supply of vegetables. It is a way for the local food community to share the risk of farming, enjoy the rich diversity of the local food system, and a way to truly eat in season.
What You Get
As a Riverside Farm CSA member, you partner with your local farmers and help sustain and flourish the local food system. You will receive 17 weeks worth of weekly vegetable boxes, running from the third week of June through to the third week of October. Each week you will receive 7-10 different items, depending on what is currently in season. At Riverside Farm we anticipates to grow a total of 23 crops throughout 2017 season. Below is a list of what vegetables to expect.
What Sets Us Apart
- We offer a box size suitable for singles, couples, and small families!
- We are committed to also growing organic Asian greens and vegetables, and are excited to offer this to our members.
We will be offering “add-ons” throughout the season - additional food items which we will source from other local food producers. Some of the add-ons may include: honey, fresh herbs, mushrooms, jams, and canned fruits and vegetables.
