WHAT IS A CSA?

 CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. 


  

Community supported agriculture is made up of community members in the area who have purchased a share from a local farm early in the season. By purchasing a share you are providing us with the capital to buy seeds, growing soil, fertilizer, tools, row cover, irrigation and other supplies needed to run a successful farm and have a productive growing season. 


A CSA is an excellent way for community members to become personally involved and invested in their local farm and food system. We strive to meet our goals for crop variety and quantity, but many factors are out of our control and as a CSA member you share in the abundance and failure of crops. Together we share in the excitement of growing in the Keweenaw. 


From mid June through mid October (16-18 weeks), a weekly produce share is provided to you for pickup. The produce in the share depends on what is in season that week. We grow, maintain, harvest, package your share for you, and deliver it to a drop point in either Calumet or Houghton. Please see our private CSA share drop policy for another pickup option.
