What is a CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” For our Certified Organic farm, it means a person can sign up to receive a weekly pre-packed box of our highest quality, farmer’s choice vegetables for an interval of time (we like short and sweet 6 week increments so you can enjoy maximum flexibility).
CSAs are an incredible way for community members to support their farmers – payment up front gives us financial security and flexibility – and provides a window into what we at Spring Time Farm are doing. In return, we will provide you with the very best that we are growing!
We are so inspired by the “Community Supported Agriculture” model. Dr. Booker T. Whatley developed the concept of a “clientele membership club” in the 1960s, laying the framework for the contemporary American CSA. Dr. Whatley, born in 1915 in Alabama, was an innovative Black farmer, businessman, and passionate advocate for small farms. Read more about him! We owe Dr. Whatley a debt of gratitude for his enormously important work in regenerative agriculture, social justice, and beyond.
