What’s a “CSA?”
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a direct link between the farmer and the consumer in order to “invest” in small, local farms. Members sign up for a “share” before the start of the season and pay up front so the farmer has an advance in capital before the very busy growing season. In return, during the growing season, the farm delivers “shares” of the harvest to their “investors.”
What’s in the share?
Katchkie’s one-size CSA share contains 6-8 types of vegetables per delivery. Vegetable varieties vary from week to week, depending on the harvest season.
*An example of an early-season share may be: basil; arugula; summer squash; zucchini; broccoli; pea shoots; bok choy
*An example of a mid-season share may be: bell peppers; tomatoes; green beans; lettuce; cabbage; green onions; cilantro; cucumbers
*An example of a late-season share may be: butternut squash; carrots; kale; leeks; beets; garlic; parsley; celery root
