Community Supported Agriculture provides an opportunity for members of the community to directly invest in their local foodshed by committing to buying a weekly or bi-weekly bag of produce. By choosing to be a Dove’s Landing Farm CSA Member, you are making a commitment to help support a small, sustainable, local farm. This allows families and individuals direct access to fresh seasonal produce, a personal relationship with their farmers and greater community building between producer and consumer.
A CSA brings the consumer and the farmer together – enhancing ecological diversity, facilitating the recycling of important nutrients and waste products, and maximizing the self-sufficiency of family farms.
