What is a CSA?

CSA is the abbreviation for Community Supported Agriculture. CSAs form a community or a partnership between consumers and farmers.  The consumers support the farm by paying in advance for a weekly share of the farmer's bounty.  The farmer receives much needed working capital and the  consumer receives first choice of the produce when it becomes available.  We also welcome visitors to our farm, provide a web site and blog detailing the happenings on the farm and give tips on using vegetables that our customers may not be familiar with.  Our customers will get to know the people growing their food and know exactly how what is on their plate came to be.


How does the CSA work?

Our farm is located in Ashtabula County, Ohio.  You can either pick up on our farm (times and dates to be determined) or at the Countryside Conservancy Farmers Market located at Howe Meadow in the Cuyhoga Valley National Park held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m..

Each week you will receive a bag of what is in season with cooking tips, recipes and other fun information.  Just return your empty bag the next week when you pick up again.
