What is Community Supported Agriculture?

CSA is a partnership of mutual commitment between a farm and a community of supporters which provides a direct link between the production and consumption of food. Supporters cover a farm’s yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season’s bounty.

CSA members make a commitment to support the farm throughout the season, and assume the costs, risks and bounty of growing food along with the farmer or grower. Members help pay for seeds, fertilizer, water, equipment maintenance, labor, etc. In return, the farm provides, to the best of its ability, a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce throughout the growing season. Becoming a member creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown and those who grow it. This mutually supportive relationship between local farmers, growers and community members helps create an economically stable farm operation in which members are assured the highest quality produce, often at below retail prices. In return, farmers and growers are guaranteed a reliable market for a diverse selection of crops. CSA reflects an innovative and resourceful strategy to connect local farmers with local consumers; develop a regional food supply and strong local economy; maintain a sense of community; encourage land stewardship; and honor the knowledge and experience of growers and producers working with small farms. CSA is a unique model of local agriculture that has developed from many different influences.

How Does the Sub Edge CSA Pick Up Work?

CSA shares are picked up once a week from our CSA barn at Sub Edge in Farmington. We have the choice of pick up days on Tuesday or Friday from 3-6. We love to have people on the farm, meeting and talking with neighbors and friends while picking up their weekly share.


What is in a Share?

A “share” is a portion of Sub Edge’s harvest over the season from June through September.

Our crop plan includes more than 150 varieties of vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers. Since we are growing seasonally, what is available each week will change over the season. This seasonal eating means that what you receive always tastes great and is picked at its height of freshness, flavor and nutrition.

All of our crops are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. We focus on traditional, old fashioned varieties and reject the use of genetically modified organisms. We are in the process of applying for organic certification.
