Join a CSA

Did you know there are 13 farms in Frederick County that offer farm CSAs?

What’s a CSA?

CSA (community-supported agriculture) is a weekly subscription to a season’s worth of sustainable, locally grown produce and other items that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting season. CSA members enjoy the quality of fresh fruits and vegetables each week, while supporting their local farmer. Some CSAs offer eggs, meat, and other items as well.

Getting food from a CSA is different from going to a farmers market or using a grocery delivery service. As a CSA member, customers make a seasonal commitment to a small farmer in your area, and the produce is either delivered to their door or they pick it up at a local distribution spot. CSA members take pleasure in knowing where and how their food is grown, and typically have an open line of communication with their farmer. Many CSA farms actively teach their members how to use the food they receive each week.

CSAs are a great benefit to the farmer, enabling them to market their product before the busy growing season days, as well as to plan what produce they need to grow to support the demand of the local community.
