What is a CSA
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a subscription-based business model sometimes called a farm share or farm subscription. Individuals and families prepay for a fresh food delivery subscription. Members receive a share of what the farm produces. An Edible Earth Farm CSA offers an extremely diverse program with lots of variety. It's why the farm and their CSA has been so successful.
Why Edible Earth Farm
There are many CSA farms these days. Edible Earth Farm realizes its customers have options and that drives them to be better and different from their competition. Enjoy the most up-and-coming varieties picked at perfection.
Small CSA Share vs. Large CSA Share
Some CSAs offer their small share customers less variety. Not us! We strive to provide a wide variety of fruit, vegetables and herbs to all members, regardless of their share size. Our Large CSA Share includes 50% more produce than the Small Share, depending on the week's harvest. A Small CSA Share feeds approximately 1-2 adults and a Large CSA Share feeds approximately 2-3 adults. We grow 200+ varieties in an effort to provide our CSA customers with a wide variety of product.
Full Choice CSA Share vs. Traditional CSA Share
A Traditional CSA is a lesser cost CSA share where the farm decides what goes in the box each week. The value of this share type is greater than a Full Choice CSA. The farm can plan without taking the unique needs of each customer in mind. A Traditional CSA improves farm efficiency and greatly reduces waste. We pass these savings onto the customer. With a Traditional CSA, you may receive an item here or there that you don't like. However, the value received is far greater than the cost.
A Full Choice CSA is a higher cost CSA share where members can choose all of what goes into their weekly box. Small CSA customers can choose 7 items per week and a large CSA customer can choose 10 items.
When Does the 2019 CSA Begin
Deliveries will begin the week of June 9th. First delivery day will be June 12th and 13th, depending on your delivery day. Deliveries will be made weekly for 20 weeks ending in mid-October. Our CSA start date will be announced to members via e-mail. We'll also announce the CSA start date on our website.
