Community Supported Agriculture

At New Leaf Farm shareholders commit to supporting the farm throughout the season. Members pay up front, helping the farmers cover the cost of running the farm and growing the food.

In return they receive a share of the harvest each week. Together eaters and growers share in the risks and bounties, the beauty and the community of the farm. Members have the opportunity to ask how their food is grown, to see how it is grown, and to help out in the fields.

Together we keep local farm land productive and have a say in how the land in our community is treated. It is about eating to the benefit of the community, the land, and our own wellness.

On farm Members pick up their share at the farm once a week. Distribution is held on Tuesdays  from 3-6:30. The CSA season lasts for 22 weeks, from June into November.
