CSA

CSA is an easy way to make sure you are eating your veggies and support a local farming family at the same time!

How does a CSA work?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture

Chickadee Farms Family

CSA members enter into a contract with a farm by purchasing a “share” of seasonal veggies and pay  in advance to help the farmer get the plants in the ground. You become a farm member to help us succeed!

That sounds cool! What else is cool about CSA?

All of your local, organically raised, farm fresh vegetables! Food is truly the way we care for ourselves and our loved ones. Give yourself and your family the best!

By joining a CSA community members are able to support local agriculture and healthy eating habits!  The members and the farmers are then entered into a partnership. Our farm grows  high quality, fresh produce, using organic techniques for our members. The members in turn share in the bounty of the harvest.

Each share will have 6-8 items with a couple of choice items a week, i.e. Bunch of Basil or Small Flower Bouquet

We offer two Share options:

Full Share: A good helping of your veggies! Perfect for a family or those who love to cook. You will pick up a share each week

Half Share: The Half Share contains the same amount per week as the full share, but you  pick up Every Other Week. The Half Share is a way to have just the right amount of veggies if you’re new to the CSA model, are a single person, or just end up cooking a couple of nights a week.
