COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA)
Food is one of our basic needs. However, for many of us, where and how our food is grown often is a mystery. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to help the community learn about farming and the food supply by being a part of the farm. CSAs strive to develop an available local food supply, encourage land stewardship, and build a sense of community.
Our farm is a founding member of YCGrown, the Yavapai County Farmers and Ranchers Cooperative. The Co-op formed in order to help small and start-up producers collectively market their products, as well as work on issues that are important to all of us. Each year, the Co-op offers its CSA to Yavapai County, with convenient pick-up locations.
Shareholders purchase shares of the harvest through a subscription or membership. Throughout the season, they receive a weekly farm box containing 6-12 fresh fruit and vegetable items, with the number depending on the size of share purchased. Beef, poultry, eggs, honey and prepared goods also are available. Click here for more information and to register for YCGrown’s CSA.
