What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Simply put, a CSA is a group of individuals who have pledged to support a local farm with the grower and members sharing the some of the risks and benefits of food production.
CSA members pay before the beginning of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they periodically, generally weekly, receive shares of produce.
Our CSA is designed with the intention of providing participants with a good measure of farm-fresh, high-quality produce each week at a discounted rate. We raise much of our own produce in-season on our 62 acre farm so we can assure you that the produce you receive will be of the highest quality.
We also source some of our in-season produce from local growers that we know and trust. The contents of each weekly share will be determined solely by Meck’s Produce but will offer a variety of different in-season items each week. The variables each week will be partly due to supply, influenced by weather and the changing of seasons. Our goal is to keep the contents of the weekly share changing to encourage you and your family to enjoy fresh produce from our farm each week!
