Hey, what’s a CSA?
Glad you asked. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA's are partnerships between food consumers and the farmers who grow their food. Buying a CSA membership is a lot like buying a piece of the field for the season. Every week, we harvest and pack a portion of the garden’s bounty for each CSA member, who gets their share at a pre-arranged pick up point.
Why buy a CSA share?
Because you love eating locally grown organic food, supporting local economies and enabling small-scale food producers!
What’s in a share?
The freshest organic fruits and vegetables we can grow! It's difficult to predict exactly what'll be in the box from week to week but we expect seasonal session shares to have some combination of arugula, peppers, okra, heirloom and preserving tomatoes, baby lettuces, carrots, onions, green garlic, herbs (dill, cilantro, parsley, sorrel), turnips, kale, cauliflower, beets, broccoli, green leaf, red leaf and romaine lettuce, kohlrabi, melon, watermelon, cucumbers, zucchini, mustards, braising mixes, green onions, fennel, cress, spinach, pecans, pecan oil, squash, pumpkins, dandelion greens, and more, as well as the occasional curveball from a neighboring farm every now and then.
Every member also receives a weekly newsletter with a picture of the share, notes from the farm, recipes featuring ingredients that are in the share for the week. Other benefits include access to our pick-your-own sunflowers, invitations to assorted events, on-farm cooking, and preserving workshops, and seasonal specials.
Why is a CSA share important?
Every CSA share has a direct impact on seeding, planting, harvesting at Inglewood so we kindly ask that you pick up your weekly share or make arrangements to have someone pick it up for you. If you need to cancel a share, it is transferrable or we will give gift certificates for any remaining shares.
Please send an email to CSA@inglewoodfarm.com for more information.
