Get Started with CSA!

Are you thinking about joining a CSA? Maybe you’ve heard of it from friends, in the newspaper, or on the radio, and getting organically grown, freshly picked produce, or humanely raised meat and eggs from a local farm sounds like exactly what you’re looking for. We want to help you find the right farm (or farms) for you, and we’ve got some useful tools for you to do just that.

To learn more about the basics of CSA and its history, check out our About CSA page.

There are a few things to consider when looking for a farm, such as a delivery site that’s convenient for you and how much produce you want to get, which you can read about on our Choosing a Farm page and Pick Up Locations Map. Once you’ve read that, use our Custom Farm Search to find those farms that offer what you’re looking for.

Lastly, it’s time to sign up! You should contact your farm directly to work out the details of your CSA membership. However, the Coalition offers a few programs to help people cover the cost, explained in detail here. Applications for Partner Shares funding are due by April 15, 2012.
