What is a CSA?
In a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, members buy a share of the weekly harvest, consisting of the freshest produce we have available on the farm during the season. Aluma Farm offers two, 14 week seasons per year: our Summer season lasts from May through early August, and our Fall season goes from late August through Thanksgiving. Members come to the farmstand every Thursday to pick up their share of produce. The costs comes to $25 per week, paid upfront before the season begins ($350). Members who pay with SNAP/EBT receive a 50% discount from the cost of their share, billed monthly ($50/month).
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.
