2021 CSA

What Is A CSA?

Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and the community.  Its a relationship between you and the farmer.

What's The Benefit?

  • Get to know your farmers and talk with those that grew your food.

  • Our produce is Certified Naturally Grown (more info)

  • Weekly newsletter with information about what produce you're receiving and how to prepare it.

  • CSA Facebook Group member so you can share with other CSA members.

  • Join us for picnics and dinners on the farm.

  • Locally grown in NW Indiana. Supporting local small businesses encourages local jobs, enhances diversity, strengthen local networks, and boosts environmental sustainability.

  • Purchasing a share will save you $$ on your grocery bill later in the year since you're buying in advance and in bulk.

  • You'll receive super fresh vegetables - like less than 12 hours old.

  • You'll create less waste and less fossil fuels.  Our vegetables travel less than 50 miles to the pickup locations compared to the average 1500 miles vegetables travel to your plate.

 

The CSA is a partnership with Grounded Earth Farm and co-operative with local small farms and businesses.  The partnership allows for a more diverse CSA and helps promote other small farmers, adding to their economic viability.
