Harvesting and holding processes are strict and ridged with an emphasis on preserving the longevity of the crops produced. Most items are harvested within a few days of delivery. Crops are processed and managed in a modern, food-safe processing facility custom made for Edible Earth Farm.
Edible Earth Farm pioneered the technology behind the Full Choice CSA program and rolled it out to Pittsburgh. It was the first farm in Western PA to offer its members the option to choose every item for the Main Season CSA. It's like a virtual farmers market. Choice CSA members choose from what's available and the farm custom packs their delivery.
Edible Earth Farm is deeply invested in building connections with its members and is likely the most member-centric CSA farm in the Pittsburgh area. Members get access to private groups and feeds where intimate behind the scene photos and stories are shared. Members receive newsletters where the farm's season, struggles and successes are articulated. Members also get access to private, on-farm events.
The farm is proud to pioneer improvements in direct-to-consumer services, logistics and organic farming techniques. The farm managers are constantly working to improve and optimize the production and delivery of fresh organic food, all with an eye toward impact reduction techniques and sustainability.
