We have filled our Fall CSA!
To help raise capital for our farm in Hillsborough—and to share the bounty from the land—we're introducing a pilot CSA program.
CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture" because members pay for an entire season of produce up front, literally providing "seed money" to farms. It works like this: You sign up for 1 share (or 2 or 3) and every week we pack a box of beautiful produce for you to use at home.
Our CSA will run for 10 weeks. And some of the delicious produce you can expect includes: Lettuce, Radish, Turnip, Bok Choi, Kale, Beets, Summer Squash, Winter Squash, Zucchini, Beans, Herbs.
While we are not certified organic, we do practice organic methods. We use no synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. You'll be eating some of the cleanest, freshest produce available.
Here are some important details for you to know:
- Because this is our first fall CSA season, we are limiting the pilot to only 10 shares total.
- Our CSA season will be 20 weeks long, beginning September 18.
- Each share is about a week's worth of produce for 2 people.
- The cost is $20 per week, totaling $200. Payment can be made with cash or check by September 18.
- Pick up: Every Wednesday at 1 of 2 locations:
- Terra Sacra (4740 Orange Grove Road, Hillsborough, NC 27278). 12pm–5pm.
- COPA (107 W. Main St, Durham, NC 27701). 5pm–9pm.
- A CSA encourages you to eat with the seasons, enjoying produce at the peak of its quality. Because of the way the produce is harvested and shared, we cannot typically accommodate substitutions unless you have an allergy.
