What our members say
"A fabulous convenience!"
"I LOVE the CSA! Each week I'm excited to see what's been harvested and every time so far I've been surprised at what is ready to be eaten...and my boys are excited for the arrival too. Can't beat that! It's helped us all start eating more healthfully. Having it delivered is so helpful - and I literally live next door - so I feel a little silly saying that - but it's one less thing I have to put on my calendar to remember to do. Thank you so much Patrick and Melissa for all the love and care that goes into your abundant, beautiful rows of super fresh, local food." -Amy Lepage, Full CSA Member
"Reliable delivery of fresh in season veggies"
"Ananda Gardens has literally changed my life.
I probably would not have signed up, except for the delivery service and also the choice to order extras. Those were both great ideas. I loved meeting Melisa and Ananda. And I truly love the food -- it has turned me into a much more adventurous cook.
Thank you!" - Ann Stanton, Half CSA Member
"You respond to my requests and preferences
in your selection of veggies".
2020 CSA Membership Options
WHAT IS A CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). It is a model that connects the community directly to their farmers.
Members purchase a share of the farm's harvest at a set price, and the farmers navigate the challenges of the growing season and produce a diversity of food.
By choosing to purchase a CSA share with us you:
Help us with early season cash flow to cover costs like seeds, compost, and labor.
Give us an assured market to help manage some of the risks of farming.
Build community and connection with the farm community.
