Community Sponsored Agriculture
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 a box of vegetables, and other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box/basket of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

PRODUCE PICK UP
Member shares will be delivered Thursday afternoon every week at our greenhouse at the Windy Hill Farm location in Glenmoore along 401 in Chester County. If you will miss a pickup, please 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 schedule need for a given week, we will try to accommodate you.
