What is CSA
CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer.
Horne Family Farms CSA is a little different from a lot of traditional CSA shares because we offer a “one size fits all” vegetable share that is home delivered.
Over time, and over the season, we work together to make sure the amount and kinds of vegetables you are receiving is right for you and your family. Waste is always a big issue with most farm CSA’s because you get a lot more then you know what to do with. From us you will get a great variety but we will learn together what you like and the quantities that work for you.
What to expect
Here is what a general season (June-October) will look from us, of course some things are subject to change but this is what we aim to produce:
