Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
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.
BENEFITS FOR OUR CONSUMERS
Direct selling removes mark up by middlemen and enables a fairer price
Freshly picked produce on harvest day without traveling
All crops are ecologically grown without the use of chemicals
Produce has higher levels of micronutrients that positively effect gut microflora
Skip the store and the planting. Just pick up from our farm
Kids typically favor food from "their" farm - even veggies
Know exactly where your food is coming from
BENEFITS FOR OUR FARMERS
Marketing is done before our 16 hour days in the greenhouse and fields
Have an opportunity to get to know our customers
Knowing where the food we produce is going and who will be eating it
Early payment helps the farmer with planning ahead for planting and purchases.
PRODUCE PICK UP
Member shares will be picked up on Thursday afternoon every week at Adragone Aeroponics, 3140 Conestoga Road, Glenmoore, PA. This new vertical aeroponic greenhouse is part of a farm historically known as Windy Hill Farm, right along 401 in Chester County. If you will miss a pickup, simply ask a friend or relative to come in your place to pick it up. 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.
