What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A CSA is a partnership between the farmer and the shareholders. Shareholders pay up front for their produce, which gives the farmer “seed” money to plant, pay wages to farm hands, and purchase materials as needed.

Then, the shareholders come weekly to collect their baskets. There is an understanding that weather, drought, and natural disasters can affect the crops. However, the shareholders agree to share in these risks. Shareholders also share in the high yielding crops and sometimes get more than expected.

The 2019 CSA at Bluebird Trail Farm

We will begin enrollment for our 2019 CSA garden on February 8th, 2019.

In our gardens, we use all natural and organic practices. Members are welcome to participate in planting and preparing the gardens on specific days. The membership fee of $50 holds a spot for your share and the full balance will be due by March 15th.

How does it work?
