What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture

CSA's are mutually beneficially; it's an investment that the customer (you) makes in a local farm (us); the local farm (us) provides the customer (you) with a a variety of fresh produce on a weekly basis over the growing season.

When you subscribe to a Long Lane Farms CSA program, you are purchasing a share of fresh, naturally grown produce grown on our farm.

The benefit to you is that you are receiving fresh produts on a weekly basis, grown using natural and biointensive farming techniques, WITHOUT the use of chemicals.  You are also shopping local and supporting a family farm.  Although there are many benefits that we receive from our customers, the one that pertains to our CSA is that it allows us toorganize and plan our garden for the growing season.

How Does It Work?

Customers pay for their share up front at the beginning of the growing season, either by a one-time payment, or a flexible multi-payment option (to be paid in full prior to the first delivery).  This allows us to plan for our gardens (types of produce, amounts, etc.) as well as provides us the funds to purchase our growing materials, such as  seeds, compost and other needed products.

What Do You Get?

CSA shares may come in various sizes, either a basic share or a full share.  Customers will receive anywhere from 7-12 fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs that are harvested from our garden on a weekly basis, throughout the entire growing season (typically 16 weeks, from mid-June to late-October.
