What is CSA?
CSA is "Community Supported Agriculture"
Teter Organic Farm's Community Supported Agriculture Project is a way for you to purchase your vegetables directly from our farm and help us get started with the season. As a CSA Member, you pre-purchase a share of the season's produce and make a commitment to building community. CSA Partner's also share the risk that is inherent with farming and the unpredictability of weather and pests. In recent years, small farms have been closing their doors at a record breaking pace. One reason for this is that small farmers cannot weather a bad season effectively. We believe that Locally Grown, Organic produce is important to our food system in Indiana. By sharing the risks of farming CSA Members help make sure more small vegetable farmers can continue to serve their communities.
CSA members sign-up in the late-winter for their share which helps your farmers to absorb the initial expenses that happen at the beginning of each growing season. In return, CSA members then receive a weekly share of fresh local produce which has been sustainably grown from non-GMO, organic seed with no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. With the CSA model, members and farmers share both the risks and the rewards of food production, and together we can live healthier lives and feel connected to the farm that nourishes us all.
Our 2018 Teter Farm CSA opens for enrollment on Nov. 15 for New Members. To find out more, please email Jonah Tabb at moc.m1513205451rafci1513205451nagro1513205451retet1513205451@bbat1513205451j1513205451.
