What is a CSA?

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)? 

Community Supported Agriculture, also known as a “CSA” or a “Farm Share” is a way to support your local farmers by subscribing to a box of a weekly seasonal harvest. 

By subscribing to a CSA, you are helping to build a more local, equitable, and sustainable agriculture system, one that allows farmers to focus on land stewardship and still maintain a profitable small farm. You are now a partner with the farmer, creating a stable market for their crops while benefiting from local, organic food production.

Members of the Taproot Farm CSA receive a weekly organic seasonal harvest of produce, handpicked on our farm that week. We offer 3 share sizes to best fit the needs of different households.

Taproot Farm CSA members also have the option to add on shares of local cheese, eggs, fruit, coffee, and mushrooms. We are incredibly lucky to live in a community with so many passionate farmers and food artisans and are proud to partner with them for our CSA offerings.

When you join the Taproot Farm CSA as a member you also receive weekly recipes from local chefs, an inside look at what it takes to run a sustainable organic farm in Pennsylvania, and invites to exclusive farm events.
