About Us
What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a weekly subscription program where subscribers purchase a share of the produce grown on a local farm.
You purchase a share at the beginning of the growing season and receive your choice of fresh seasonal produce from June to November. At Red Earth Farm, we pack your weekly order and deliver it to a pick-up site convenient to your home or work. You will also have the opportunity to purchase other fresh farm products such as eggs, cheese, yogurt, and honey that we bring to you from neighboring farms.
About Our Growing Methods
Our top priority at Red Earth Farm is to produce a large diversity of quality vegetables thoughout the growing season. We wish to do this while remaining good stewards of our land so that we may pass it on to future generations in better condition than we received it.
Our farm practices reflect these two objectives. Although we are not certified organic we use primarily certified organic techniques, making exceptions in cases such as potential significant crop loss, as in tomato blight. We use no synthetic pesticides or herbicides on our farm. We hope that by conscientious and thoughtful management of our farm we will be bringing fresh, dependable food to the people of our region for many years to come.
Why CSA?
CSA provides the opportunity to experience local foods as they come into season. Each vegetable, fruit and herb that comes to your table is at its peak of flavor and nutritional value. Seasonal foods bring a natural variation to the diet and establishes a rhythm in our eating habits.
Supporting a local farm makes a contribution to keeping our environment greener by reducing transportation of foods by as much as 1000 miles.
Newsletters from the farm include information about nutrition, our growing practices, recipes and updates on upcoming events
“We are so grateful for the amazingly beautiful produce you have diligently delivered to us for so many weeks. Our kids have never eaten so much of their vegetables or fruit. Our life has felt plentiful thanks to you.” D.D., Philadelphia
