Workplace CSA for Employees

  • Convenience – No more fighting traffic or dealing with tired kids when you pick up your box after work. Leave work with your veggies and save shopping and driving time.
  • Camaraderie – Enjoy the fun of opening your box  in the company of your colleagues! Swap veggies, share recipes, and experience CSA with your colleagues. Single-person households can easily ban together to split a share or add-ons, and when you go on vacation, it’s easy to find a friend to take your box.
  • Community – Workplace CSA brings people together from across many different departments for the fun of unpacking CSA shares once a week. Take it a step further by holding a CSA potluck or visiting your farm together!

Workplace CSA for Businesses

Offering a workplace CSA program is a low-cost, concrete means of contributing to your company’s wellness and sustainability goals, and shows employees you care. Many businesses are treating workplace CSA like a new employee benefit! Workplace CSA programs are increasing across Southern Wisconsin.
