Maya’s Farm CSA
Support a Local Farmer and Eat Healthier Too!
Maya’s Farm is now accepting applications for membership for its Fall 2014 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) season.
The Fall season runs from September 24 – December 13, 2014 and includes 12 weekly baskets of produce.
Each CSA member has a choice of three (3) pick-up days and seven (7) locations to make eating healthy and local even easier.
By joining the Community-Supported Agriculture Program you will join a loosely organized community of health and environmentally conscious people who share the bounties and risks of Maya’s Farm, a local, independent farm. As a CSA member you will purchase a share in the farm’s future harvests. Your participation supports its viability and capacity for quality production up front: It allows the farm to purchase seeds, then plant, nurture and harvest the crops we offer to you.
The cost is $300 for a 12-week season (which translates to just $25 / week). Members receive a weekly food basket for three months from the date of their first pick-up. Shares include a selection brimming over with fresh, in-season, certified organic vegetables, herbs, flowers, all cut by hand, and eggs. Food baskets vary according to which crops are ready for harvest during a given week.
By becoming a member you will:
- Support a local farmer: Unlike buying from a grocery store, the CSA is a great way to give money directly to the farmer that grows your fruits and vegetables.
- Get the freshest possible seasonal eats: Since all of the produce you get from Maya’s CSA is locally-grown, everything in your weekly share will be grown within a stone’s throw of your home or work. That means it’s picked when ripe, and not frozen and trucked across country before getting to you. Also, as the weather changes, crops will change too – you’ll get items like lettuce and greens in the spring, tomatoes and peppers in the summer, squash in the fall and root veggies in winter – when they’re perfectly ripe!
- Try new, healthier foods: Maya’s CSA offers Certified Organic foods, free of pesticides and grown in a manner that is good for the environment. Plus, you will get a chance to try new and different crops and bring your eating habits closer to the season.
- Get outside: You are invited to visit Maya’s Farm and get up close and personal with the fruit and veggies you eat!
