What is CSA?
The acronym 'CSA' stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it is a system of food production where the farmer is directly connected with the consumer, and the consumer shares in the risks and benefits of the food production. By selling membership in advance of the growing season, Community Supported Agriculture reduces the burden of up-front costs for the farmer. CSA farming also aims to build community by bringing people together over the production of quality food and to build ecosystems through small-scale, low-impact methods.
Mountain Grove Farm is a polycultural, biodiverse, local community farm.
- We grow a variety of crops to protect against crop failures and to avoid nutrient depletion in the soil.
- We use cover-cropping, crop rotation, and organic manure/compost application to build soil health.
- We have a no-spray policy to ensure we aren't introducing chemicals into the food system.
- We only serve customers in our local community to guarantee fresh, tasty produce.
We make these choices because we believe that diversity in any system makes it stronger. Such an approach allows farmers to grow not only vibrant and flavorful produce, but also richly connected community systems.
