Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) allows members to have direct access to high quality, locally grown, fresh vegetables. When you become a member of our CSA you are purchasing a share of our farm for the season, meaning you own a portion of the farm! You’ll get to understand a bit about eating seasonally and there will be many opportunities to visit both farm locations, volunteer and celebrate the community and the produce. Your CSA share means a lot to the financial stability of our farm, which can be fragile and vulnerable to chance. By paying up front you are ensuring a great season for everyone!
How It Works:
You pay in advance for the season for your share of the freshest veggies around. This capital up front helps us pay for seed, tools, and equipment for the season. We grow all of the food and deliver boxes each week to your home, office or you may pick it up at one of our drop off locations. You get high quality, sustainably produced vegetables and you know where they come from. We understand that purchasing a share of a farm is a big decision and investment. We are happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have. We are also happy to work with you to find a payment option that works best for your budget.
Monday- Home Delivery*
Wednesday 4:30-6:30- On Farm Pick-Up (South Side Farm)
If you are a member of the Westgate Community and would like to pick up your box at the farmers market 2 times a month, get in touch with us and we can work something out!
*We can only deliver to locations within the 270 loop or in Pataskala. If there are several subscribers who live in locations outside of the city, we can schedule a few other drop-off sites that are more convenient. If there are 4 or more subscribers at your work place, we will drop off directly to your office. We can be somewhat flexible, so get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can find something that works well for everyone.
Each CSA box will have 6-10 different varieties. We have carefully planned each box to balance common veggies, that you know and love, with specialty veggies to try out. Boxes are $25/box but if you purchase for the whole season boxes are $23/box. Below are examples of vegetables you might find in your boxes.
