What is a CSA?

 

CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture." CSAs are a way for farms and the community to mutually support each another. The CSA model helps get income to farms when costs are high in the spring and supports the farm to focus on growing food for their members.

 

By subscribing to a Brady Farm CSA share, you help to sustain the farm, you receive regular farm-fresh produce, and you save money. Subscriptions are called "shares" because members share the benefits and risks, and are given a voice in what is grown at the farm.

 

  CSA Share Options

 

 Week to Week CSA Box ($25 per week)

  Available Year-round
