What is a CSA?
CSA stands for community supported agriculture and aims to create a direct connection between you and your farmer. The Greenacres CSA program allows customers to buy a season’s worth of vegetables in advance at a significant savings over market prices. In return, we commit to providing your family with exceptionally high-quality vegetables over a 22 week period. You’ll be able to learn about new vegetables and try new recipes. The Greenacres CSA program gives you the opportunity to be involved in an approach to our agriculture that is truly healthy for people, communities and ecologies.
