What is a CSA?

CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture". A CSA is a partnership between a local farm and the neighboring community, in which the community receives produce from a local farm. Families or individuals purchase a "share" from a local farm, and in doing so are provided with weekly, fresh, seasonal produce throughout the designated time frame. At Thorpe's Organic Family Farm, we offer summer and winter shares. Summer 2017 registration forms are located here, and our brochure is available here.

Our CSA is unique in a number of different ways. Firstly, we only grow produce that is 100% certified organic. For more information on our organic, sustainable growing methods, and why we believe they're important, click here. Our entire farm is family owned and operated, so you truly get to know who your farmers are as a CSA member! We offer both fruit and vegetable shares that may be purchased together or separately, based on your preference, and both summer and winter shares are available. Our summer CSA shares differ from some other farms in that they are run "market style" meaning you choose your own produce on pick up days. We do not pre-box summer shares unless requested, so members may choose a certain designated amount of each vegetable themselves instead of having someone select it for them.

A CSA is a great option for individuals and families who enjoy cooking creatively, with whatever produce is in season. Some flexibility in the kitchen is required, because it requires you to cook based on what is available each week, as opposed to pre-planning a weekly menu and then grocery shopping for it. This style of cooking is often more nutritious because you will be receiving produce that is at its peak, which affects not only flavor, but nutritional content as well. CSA shares are also wonderful options if you like to preserve your food by freezing, canning, dehydrating etc.
