Community Supported Agriculture
The CSA at Know Good Farm
The best part of farming is knowing that the food we labor to grow will grace the tables of our friends and neighbors.
The support from this community has enabled us to move to a farm of our very own. Members of our CSA have been the cornerstone of our growth and we strive to show our appreciation by growing the very best for them.
We offer a wide variety of vegetables in greater quantities than ever before. In addition to fresh vegetables shares will sometimes include seafood, prepared foods such as soups, salsas and salads and the occasional (pleasant) surprise!
Two CSA Share Options are available:
- The 21-week FULL SEASON CSA runs from May 9th to September 26th.
- The 14-week SUMMER SEASON CSA runs from June 6th to September 5th.
Shares can be picked up on the farm on Wednesdays between 12-6 PM, Home (or workplace) delivery on Thursdays or at the Saturday farmers market in St. Michaels between 9-11 AM.
CSA Shares cost $25 per week payable in advance, unless other arrangements are agreed upon.
Community Supported Agriculture: What is it?
"Community Supported Agriculture consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community's farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. Typically, members or "share-holders" of the farm or garden pledge in advance to cover the anticipated costs of the farm operation and farmer's salary. In return, they receive shares in the farm's bounty throughout the growing season, as well as satisfaction gained from reconnecting to the land and participating directly in food production." - USDA
