What is a CSA?
CSA stands for community supported agriculture and is a system whereby members join at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest. We offer weekly shares of our superior-quality produce, across three seasons. Each week our members can expect a generous portion of the produce we have available at that time. Everything that we grow is included in our CSA with no additional add-on costs and everything that our members receive is grown or made by us. When we have an over-abundance of produce, it is often shared with the Hillsborough County Gleaners so that it can be distributed to local food pantries.
To help our CSA run as smoothly as possible for everyone, we have drafted a document of rules and responsibilities governing how our CSA runs. You can find these in the membership handbook.
We offer Spring and Main Season CSA shares. The 2020 Spring season CSA will run for 10 weeks from late March/early April – late May/early June. The 2020 Main season CSA will run for 20 weeks into October and start the week after the spring season ends.
The main pickup location is at our field in Mason, NH. We hope to continue delivering shares to Peterborough for 2020 and start delivering to a location in Temple as well.
All of the produce our customers receive is grown by us using regenerative agricultural practices. Because we know that healthy soil grows healthy food, we maintain our fields with soil-friendly methods that include: no till, cover cropping, composting/manuring and crop rotation. Because we care about the health of our planet, our neighbors and our members, we do not use synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or GMO seeds.
Our full size shares are designed with flexibility in mind. You never have to take anything you might not want and can swap out items if desired. Members are also encouraged to take the amount of offerings that best suits their needs.
Our CSA members receive discounts off the retail price of any additional produce purchased directly from us during their membership season. If you join and refer a friend you will receive one free week for that particular CSA.
If you are in need of food assistance, we partner with the Monadnock Farm Share Program.
