What's a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture brings together food and character, consumer and grower, and people and place. In a CSA, consumers invest in the farm at the beginning of the season, and farmers return to them a weekly share of the harvest. This is a financial and communal model of farming that is widely adopted by small-scale, organic vegetable farmers. This model arose as a way to engage food-lovers in local agriculture, but also to make it possible for smaller producers to assume the risks of farming.
Farming is an industry that requires high-amounts of upfront investment; in a good season this investment returns beautiful and bountiful produce, yet in some seasons harvest may suffer due to environmental factors. In order to resist mega-farms and grow a regional food culture, the CSA model has made it possible for small-scale producers to provide a fresher and more intimate approach to food. At Carriage House we invite you to join us this season: challenge yourself to find meaning in your meals, discover a new vegetable, and support the farmers and land you care about.
What if I have to miss a week and cannot pick up my share? - We are happy to pack your share on an infrequent basis if every once-in-a-while you can't pick it up at the assigned time. This would include us bagging your veggies and you picking them up at the soonest convenience.
What if I have to miss a series of weeks, because I am on vacation? - The best option is for you to gift your share to a friend or family member who would appreciate the vegetables, while you are gone. Just let us know and we will welcome them as if they were a member themselves. If you are a part of the workshare, they could even come help on the farm for you while you're gone.
How much and what will my share include from week to week? - Weekly shares will vary by availability, but we shoot to provide a diverse abundance of salad greens, cooking greens, herbs, fruiting vegetables, and root crops each week. This is an example of what a weekly share might look like: .5lb cherry tomatoes, 1lb beets, 1 cabbage, 1 bunch basil, 1lb summer squash, 1oz oregano, 1lb green beans, 1/2lb onions, and, on-a-good week, maybe a little extra.
