What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

CSA farmers offer a limited number of their produce shares for anyone in their local area to purchase in advance. When you purchase a share from a farm, you become a CSA member of that farm.


CSA membership through UK typically includes:

  • A box of local and organic vegetables (and occasionally fruits and other farm products) delivered weekly to a convenient pick-up location.
  • Opportunities to get to know your local farmers and learn more about where your food comes from.
  • Tips, recipes, and workshops for learning ways to use and store the produce in your weekly shares.
