What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported agriculture. Consumers buy shares of a farm's harvest in advance by paying an agreed amount at the beginning of the growing season, either in one lump sum or in installments. The annual cost depends on the length of the harvest season and the variety and quantity of products provided.
By paying at the beginning of the season, CSA members share in the risk of production and relieve the farmer of much of the time needed for marketing. This allows the farmer to concentrate on good land stewardship and growing high quality food.
In return for their membership fee, consumers receive a variety of freshly picked vegetables every week. Consumer-members eat healthy, sustainably produced food and have the satisfaction of knowing where it came from and how it was grown.
How does a Waite Family Farms CSA share work?
Each Monday you will receive an email with the week's produce availability. You will then email what you want in your share. We package your customized box/bag and have it ready for you at pickup. By having it ready for you we hope to save you time. But by having you pick up we also hope you will have a chance to ask questions and see where we farm.
In 2022 our season will start May 31st and will run for 18 weeks until September 27th. Pick-ups will be Tuesday afternoon/evening. Because we are a small CSA we do have some flexibility, so please reach out to us if Tuesdays do not work for you. Limited delivery is available. Delivery will happen either Tuesday evenings after the regular pick up time, or on Wednesday mornings. We will communicate with you through email and/or text to set up the best option for you.
