Community supported agriculture is a collaboration between farmers and the people who eat the food they grow.   As Wendell Berry puts it, "Eating is an agricultural act."   CSA is a means by which people may establish a stronger relationship with the sources of their food.   As farmers, we make a commitment to you to be good stewards of the land we grow your food on, and to grow a wide variety of high-quality vegetables in suitable quantities for you and the people with whom you share your table.   And you, the folks who eat our food, make a commitment to us and the ecological practices we use by purchasing a share in our harvest, by sharing in some of the risks (and potential bounty) associated with growing crops in the Northeast, and by paying in advance of the season for your produce.      

We believe that the principles of sustainable agriculture apply to every kind of farming, from the growing of the fresh vegetables and fruits that make their way to your dinner plates, to the production of the fresh cut flowers that adorn your tables. As organic growers, we use no pesticides or synthetic fertilizers of any kind.   To enrich our soils, we use cover crops, crop rotations and compost.   We are committed to careful land stewardship, ecological pest management, and a healthy environment for the people who work with us. In this way, we hope to leave our farm in good condition for future generations.
