Farms offering CSAs in Western Pennsylvania:
Community Supported Agriculture allows you to buy into a farm without having to do the planting, watering, weeding and harvesting! It also fosters a direct connection between farmers and consumers.
To join a CSA is to buy a share of the season's harvest and to become part of the farm community. This direct connection puts the face of food in full view! Before the start of the season, when the farmer is planning the upcoming year, shares are sold to members of the community at a fixed price.
The farmer plans the plantings to meet the shares that have been sold. Every week throughout the season, the CSA community receives a box of that week's harvest.
Many farms deliver to several convenient area locations, but they always encourage the community to come to the farm, and even to participate in the growing of their food.
There are quite a number of CSA programs serving Western Pennsylvania. View the 2012 CSA BROCHURE to find pick up locations or use this list to find the right farm for your family. You can also visit our FRESH FOOD FINDER and search for CSAs or your Zip Code to find drop-off/pick-up points in your area.
Most CSA shares include a wide mixture of products including vegetables, fruits, dairy, eggs, meats, honey, flowers, herbs, and value-added products like bread, yogurt, dried products, jams, sauces, and other canned goods. Check with your farmer to see what other exciting locally made products may be included in your CSA share.
