What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture (often abbreviated as CSA) is a way for people to purchase the highest quality, freshest organic vegetables directly from a local grower. Much like a magazine subscription, members buy a share of the harvest at the beginning of the growing season and then pick up their freshly harvested seasonal vegetables once a week.
In the true spirit of sharing, CSA members share in the risks and rewards of the season with the farmer. Weather, pests and plant diseases are all a reality of farming, so there’s no guarantee you’ll get every vegetable in a farmer's crop list. Rest assured, at the Crooked Carrot CSA we plant an abundance of a great variety of crops to ensure you’ll always have an amazing vegetable eating experience.
The rewards of joining a CSA are tremendous. The vegetables are as fresh as it gets; generally harvested the same day you receive them. Your food will be traveling a far shorter distance than most anything you can buy in a grocery store. Also, you will know exactly how your vegetables were grown and handled since you know the farmer!
Why buy your vegetables from The Crooked Carrot?
Fresh, local, in season produce is just better. Vegetables contain the most nutrients when picked at peak maturity and then promptly consumed. Grocery store produce is often harvested before it is ripe and may spend 3-5 days in transit and travel over a thousand miles before it is available to you at the store. During this lengthy travel time valuable nutrients leach out of your produce and flavor degrades considerably.
Vegetables you receive from The Crooked Carrot will never contain any synthetic pesticides, herbicides or chemicals. Only products approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute will be used, and only when completely necessary. The Crooked Carrot has also signed the Northeast Organic Farming Association's Farmer's Pledge.
By purchasing your vegetables from a local farmer you are reducing "food miles", ensuring a safe supply of healthy vegetables for you and your family, and helping to support your local economy.
