Community Supported Agriculture at Land’s Sake

A CSA—Community Supported Agriculture—program connects you with your food. By buying a share in the winter or early spring, you're reserving weekly pick-ups of sustainably-grown produce right here on our farm, straight from our farmers.

We plant, grow, and harvest vegetables knowing the faces of the shareholders who will take them home. It's like a weekly vegetable date: from June – November, we get to see you at the same time each week, and you get to watch the farm change through the seasons. This ritual becomes a small, back-to-basics escape that also creates fewer food miles, less waste, and more transparency between you and your food. It represents a commitment to growing and consuming food grown close to home without the use of synthetic chemicals that pollute our soils and waterways. Being a Land's Sake CSA Shareholder feels—and tastes—great!

Joining our CSA also means that you're joining the Land's Sake community. Membership is a requirement to join the program, and we have different levels to suit every individual or family. In addition to being able to join our CSA, you'll also receive special Membership benefits, including the knowledge that you are supporting the farm.

Early Bird Registration: Every December, we offer CSA shareholders from the previous year the opportunity to participate in a special Early Bird Registration period from mid-December to early January. During this time, we offer a 5% discount on your CSA share.
