CSA for consumers
What can you expect from joining your local CSA farm?
Each CSA is different, however all of our CSA farm members agree to the principles laid out in our charter, giving you piece of mind.
When joining a CSA farm, you can expect to receive a share of food, have direct contact with the farmer or grower and know that you are helping to provide them with a sustainable income.
Many CSA farms offer volunteer opportunities, work parties and open days where you can put on your wellies and help out. This provides a fantastic opportunity for you or your family to learn more about how you food is produced and meet lots of new people.
CSA farms don’t just provide vegetables!
Here are some of the other great produce you might find on offer at your local CSA farm:
- sustainably reared meats
- fruit juices
- locally baked bread
- sponsor an apple tree schemes, to share in its fruit
- rent-a-vine schemes from a vineyard
