CSA Farm Share Program

CSA Program Details
What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture: “A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farming operation where the growers and consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. CSAs consist of a system of weekly pick-up of vegetables and fruit.”

Our Purpose

In Fall of 2011 we devoted ourselves to starting a CSA. Our motivation for starting a CSA program was to connect our consumers to our farm and allow them to understand and feel confident in the source of their food. Being farmers in Long Valley for 99 years, it is important to us to provide our community with the knowledge and accessibility to healthy & local produce. We want our customers to have the opportunity to get fresh produce and experience the health benefits that come along with it.
