Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

The Basics

We provide a great way to get local, seasonal food directly from our farm by offering a certain number of weekly “shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of vegetables, and other farm products. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or “subscription”) and in return receive an amount of seasonal produce each week throughout a ten-week cycle.

PRODUCE PICK UP

Member shares will be picked up on Thursday afternoon every week at Adragone Aeroponics,

3140 Conestoga Road, Glenmoore, PA.

If you will miss a pickup, simply ask a friend or relative to come in your place. CSA membership is similar to theater or music subscriptions—if you miss a “performance,” you forfeit your share for that week. That said, if you contact Adragone Aeroponics with a special scheduling need for a given week, we will try to accommodate you.

Please bring the bags issued at the first pick-up. They are washable and reusable. Our conscious effort to stop using plastic disposable bags.
