What is a CSA


Community

Agriculture

CSA allows local residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown by your neighbors at Fresh Ponds Farm. When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables grown on the farm. Weekly, from June until October, we prepare a basket for pick-up that includes the produce and vegetables harvested that week. CSA members pay for an entire season of produce upfront by the due date published on the website and facebook page, which enables us to plan for the season, purchase new seed, make equipment repairs, and invest in improvements on the farm to foster a successful harvest for our members!
