Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
CSA movement started a few decades ago and has been a lifeline for farmers across the globe. It is an opportunity for people who like to eat local and the growers to join in a partnership so that all can benefit. When you buy a share of farms' harvest in early spring, it helps your local farm pay for seeds and other expenses in slow seasons.
At Riverland Family Farm, you can buy shares of the farm's harvest in early spring and receive a weekly harvest box with freshly picked fruits, vegetables, and herbs from June - November.
What's in the box?
With CSA membership, for 22 weeks you will receive a Harvest Box filled with fresh-picked, high quality organic produce. Harvest box is carefully selected assortment of seasonal vegetables, fruits, greens, roots, and herbs. Each box has average 9 items including tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, or salad mix, potatoes, onions, and fruits. Each box also comes with a newsletter with weekly farm news and delicious recipes. Below is a list of what was in the box last year. You can expect to see similar selection in 2021 boxes, unless Mother Nature has a different plan.
How the farm benefits from your membership
Your CSA membership is a sign of your appreciation for local harvest and your commitment to support a local organic farm. Your membership fee paid in the spring reduces the amount of money we need to borrow to pay for soil amendments, seeds, and labor. Essentially, you are helping us keep the farm running.
Harvest Box Season Length
Box season is 22 weeks, June 7th - November 1st
