Reasons to Join.
Your Food. Your Farm.
Teter Organic Farm's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Project is a way for you to purchase your certified organic vegetables directly from our farm and join with a community of people who want access to local, organic produce.
Nutrient Rich and Healthy Produce
At Teter Organic Farm we are committed to growing food that is good for your body and for the environment. This means we don't use any chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Our vegetables are completely soil grown using natural methods that increase the nutrient density and flavor of your produce. Do you have questions about how we grow your food? Just ask, or schedule a time to visit the farm and see for yourself.
Eat More Vegetables
Joining our CSA is a great way to eat more vegetables and try new ones. Our member newsletter provides you with tips and tricks on how to move to a more plant based diet and offers a lot of great new vegetable recipes to try.
Keep Food Production Local
When you purchase produce directly from your farmer, you support our ability to continue to grow high quality organic produce for our community. Teter Organic Farm is also committed to supporting other local businesses and nonprofits as we serve our community together.
Better for Our Earth
It is estimated that most meals in the United States travel an average of 1,500 miles from the farm to your plate. When you purchase produce directly from your local farmer, you also get the freshest produce possible, support the local economy, dramatically reduce the use of fossil fuels in transport, generate fewer greenhouse gases, and by shortening the food chain you help reduce waste often associated with conventional food distribution, warehousing, and merchandising. Thank you for supporting a more sustainable food system.
Restorative Farming Practices
We strive to farm in a way that restores the soil, protects our watershed, and respects the animals and insects that share our farm. We are Certified Organic, and also use certain growing practices which go beyond the requirements of the organic certification. We utilize a variety of practices that make our vegetables better for the environment and healthier for your body.
Our growing methods include:
High Diversity of Vegetables Crops Grown.
Integrated Pest Management.
Use only Organic Fertilizers, Compost, Cover Crops, and Crop Rotations.
Do not use Chemical Fertilizers or Pesticides.
