What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farm share program in which individuals buy into the farm by purchasing a share, and in turn receive a bountiful selection of fresh produce every week throughout the season. Shares are purchased before the start of the growing season, allowing farmers to focus on growing and delivering the highest-quality, best-tasting fruits and vegetables for shareholders in the summer.

Community Supported Agriculture is a great opportunity to eat seasonally and try different foods. You will receive the best of what a New England harvest has to offer, and experience the fun of letting the season form your menu.

Most importantly, a CSA program establishes a relationship between a farm and the local community. In Japan, the name for CSA is teikei(提携), meaning, in a sense, to put the farmer's face on the food. We believe food tastes better when you know the people who grew it, and we put great pride into growing delicious and healthy food to feed our community.
