What is a CSA?
Receive a weekly share of Fresh, Local, Organic Veggies
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between farmers and members. It implies a willingness to share both the bounty from the land and at least some of the risks involved with production.
Through seasonal subscriptions, growers provide CSA members with weekly fresh vegetable selections. The result? Just picked-fresh, locally grown produce; vegetables grown for flavor, not shelf life; and a vibrant local farm economy.
By becoming a CSA member you receive:
-A weekly share of farm veggies
-Recipes and tips on how to use your share
-Knowing and trusting who is growing your food and where it's being grown
Why Join a CSA?
There are many reasons to join a CSA program. Here are the main reasons to join a Serenbe Farms CSA program.
Superior nutrition and quality. Just picked, selected for flavor, handled with care, and grown on well balanced soils, your food will be at the pinnacle of freshness and quality. Organic vegetables grown in balanced soil and picked and eaten at their peak are more likely to contain a balanced array of nutrients and minerals.
Locally grown produce. A Serenbe CSA share allows you to be close to your food! Not only will you know where your vegetables are coming from, but you will also be eating seasonally. Our CSA shares are harvested and picked up the same day, which means vegetables are at their freshest.The average distance conventional food travels to your table is 1500 miles. Our food travels from the field to your table.
Affordable. On average how much do you spend on produce a week? Our share provides 5-10 servings of vegetables, for only $20-$30, each week!.
Safer food. Eat healthier. Our farm is USDA certified Organic. No synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, GMOs, chemicals, or additives are used on our farm.
Supports your community. By cutting out the multiple middlemen involved in our current food system, your money is going directly to your farmer! A great way to support your local economy. Develop a relationship with the people growing your food. A CSA share puts a face behind the food. You will have a direct connection to the food you eat.
Never get bored! Discover new things. With help from our weekly recipes, you will gain knowledge of southern seasonal produce. You will be familiar with most of the produce you receive each week, but there will also be fun surprises when you get to take home a new vegetable or new variety. Enjoy the bounty!
