CSA

What is a CSA program?

Community Supported Agriculture is when a community pledges their support to a farm (like ours) and pre-pays for a box of seasonal, local, organic vegetables. Pledging your support to a small farm (like ours) ensures the farm that they can continue to exist. CSA provides the community with the freshest, healthiest produce while educating our families and connecting them to the land.

Shepherd Farms Membership Benefits:

Organic – Since 1973 we have been growing crops without pesticides and chemical fertilizers.  We believe in healthy families and a healthy environment.

Local – Picked when ripe, local produce is fresher, tastier and more nutritious. Since it hasn’t traveled far to reach your plate, you help reduce your carbon foot print.

Economical – Our organic produce is bountiful, beautiful, and lower priced than grocery store organic.

Convenient – Central drop-off locations and delivery service saves shopping time.

Community - Joining the Shepherd Farms CSA entitles you to farm visits, harvest celebrations, and other gatherings on our farms.
