What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a cooperative effort of food distribution, a way of linking small farmers with communities all over the country.

The summer produce CSA: 16+ weeks of amazing, seasonal fruits and vegetables June-October
The winter produce CSA: 5 deliveries of seasonal and storage fruits and vegetables October-February, read more here

Why do CSAs exist?
Because you, the consumer, are looking for a good product and farmers are looking for the economic benefit of marketing their produce directly. CSA also benefits the farmer by producing positive cash flow during the late winter when the farmer needs to buy seeds and supplies to begin the spring growing season.

What are the benefits of CSA?
CSA benefits you by providing a constant supply of produce locally grown and offered at the peak of ripeness and absolute freshness. Small farmers are able to grow produce that is better tasting than that of large commercial farms, which often grow fruits and vegetables designed to be mechanically harvested and transported greater distances. For many who are concerned about how their food is grown and the distance most of our food travels to get to the supermarket, developing a trusting relationship with the farmer is the number one benefit. Another great benefit of being a member of Stillman's CSA is you know you are contributing to a farm that donates thousands of pounds of produce to area food banks and shelters every year!

Member's also receive:

**weekly box-letters with farm news, what's in the box, recipes...

    **$20 Stillmans bucks! Yes, it's like a gift card to use at any of our market stands or at the pickup location.

    **A Stillman's reusable bag -last year we saved 25,000 plastic bags!!!!!!

    **invitations to the farm for pick your own, pot-luck or just a stroll

    **access to extra produce at a discount for freezing, canning, etc...

    **and Gleaning!

 

How does the CSA work ?
At the farm, a box of produce will be hand packed for each of our subscribers. The box will be delivered every week to a designated pickup location in our subscribers' communities. Stillman's offers a fabulous selection of fruits and vegetables! Of course, we'll keep you well-stocked with the necessities too. Once the season gets going, we try to come with choices for you to complete your box. Options may include greens like swiss chard, kale, kohlrabi, beets, or simply extra cukes or tomatoes.


Some CSA are shares of whatever the farm produces; our CSA is subscription based which means we pack your box based on not only what we are harvesting but dollar value. Other benefits of our CSA program include weekly letters during the growing season, invitations to farm events, as well as an open invitation to visit the farm to walk, browse, and even pick!

***Due to increased costs everywhere, we have had to increase our box price to $376 and $528, respectively. Effective after April 1.

(Early in the season, before April 1) we offer a small box ($350/season) and a large box ($500/season): a $350 membership box in July might contain:1/2 pint blueberries, one half dozen corn, a head of lettuce, assorted squash, 1 pound tomatoes, 1 pound peas or beans, two cucumbers, bunch kale...
