2021 CSA Farm Guide

Are you looking for fresh produce from a local farm to your table, all summer long? Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes are a great way to connect with and support local farmers, by ordering your seasonal produce in advance. CSA farms usually offer weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables. CSA shares can also include meat, flowers, fruits, herbs and eggs.

Visit our 2021 CSA Farm Guide for a list of farms in this region with shares available for 2021, and then search our Buy Local Food Guide map to see if there is a CSA farm near you. 

In a CSA, the farmer grows food for a predetermined group of eaters. Eaters enter into an agreement of purchase with the grower prior to the start of the season. The farmer gains a guaranteed market, and the consumer gains high quality, fresh food as it becomes available.

Don’t wait! CSA shares sell out quickly, and are limited. Farmers have seen increased community support and interest in their shares, with orders being placed earlier in the season than usual due to the increase of demand for delivery options during the Covid-19 pandemic. Become part of the buy-local movement, and support local agriculture!
