What is a CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” In a CSA, a community of individuals pledge to support a farming operation where growers and consumers share the risks and benefits of food production.
Why should you join a CSA?
When you join a CSA you are showing your support for local, organically-grown food. You receive the healthiest and freshest produce available.
Who should join?
If you want to eat healthy, organically grown food that hasn’t had to travel miles and miles to get to your plate, you should join a CSA. If you want to support local agriculture, you should join a CSA.
When will the CSA run?
The Sunflower Farm CSA will run from late June until October for approximately 16 weeks. During the first few weeks and the last few weeks, the quantity and variety of produce will be less than during the height of the season when your food basket will be brimming with a large variety of vegetables and fruit.
How much does it cost?
A share in the Sunflower Farm CSA for the 2013 season will cost $400 per family. We will also be offering a berry share for an extra $50. Two families may opt to share a membership and will each receive a box on alternate weeks.
Where does it all take place?
Sunflower Farm is located on Mountain Road, about 14 kms east of Tamworth. Most of the vegetables and fruit will be grown there. If you choose to purchase the berry option for $50, we will also provide blueberries grown in Tweed and other berries grown in Centreville. There will be a pick up location for all members in Tamworth, another location in Napanee or delivery will be available for out of town members for an additional fee.
Are there other benefits to being a member of a CSA?
As part of the Sunflower Farm CSA not only will you receive a basket of healthy, organically-grown produce each week, but you will also receive recipes to use your veggies. Our members love to share their own ideas for using our veggies too! Be sure to click here to see some sample boxes and lists of items from last year’s CSA.
