C.ommunity S.upported A.griculture
By joining a CSA, you have direct access to fresh, local organic produce at discounted market value. Choosing to support a small farm by becoming a CSA member is not only a healthy alternative for your family but will also benefit the environment and your community. Small farms like Meadowland Farm help preserve biodiversity, produce less waste and carbon emissions, and is the best way to access your food from field to mouth. Our growing practices ensure we will be able to continue working this land for many generations to come and guarantee you are receiving the freshest and highest quality produce free from any chemicals or pesticides.
Want to eat seasonally or enjoy a large variety of produce each week? Here at Meadowland Farm we grow over 100 varieties of vegetables and fruits. Joining our CSA will provide you and your loved ones with 22 weeks of fresh, seasonal produce. Making the trip to the farm each week is a wonderful family activity and an excellent way to support the local community and meet your neighbors. Eating organic, local, seasonal produce is also the healthiest option available--and the tastiest! Becoming a CSA member means becoming a part of our Meadowland Farm family. Your membership not only supports two young farmers but supports the ever changing movement towards a more sustainable world.
