What is a CSA?
In a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, members buy a share of the farm’s harvest at the beginning of the season, and receive their vegetables every week after that. Aluma Farm is now offering 3 different options for folks interested in joining the CSA. The Full share is 6 different vegetables or fruits each week, and you can choose to pick up on Thursdays from 4-8 during the farmstand, or on Sundays from 10-12. The costs comes to $25 per week, paid upfront before the season begins ($350 plus processing fee). Our new CSA share this year is our Salad Share, which consists of 3-4 salad focused vegetables, for $16/week, paid upfront ($224 plus processing fee). Members who pay with SNAP/EBT receive a 50% discount from the cost of their share, billed monthly ($50/month for the Full share or $32/month for the Salad share). To buy a share with EBT, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up payment.
Why join a CSA?
There are many benefits of joining a CSA, for both the farmers and the CSA members. The upfront investment by the members supports farmers growing local and sustainable food, and strengthens a food system that puts its community first. Members experience a personal connection with the land and the farmers who grow their food. Farmers grow deeper relationships with their community. Members experience the changing seasonal bounty of the farm's produce and gain a deeper understanding of the natural growing cycles in their area. Farmers achieve greater stability in their operation and create thriving and long-lasting farms.
