Community-sponsored agriculture (CSA) brings farm-fresh produce to your table, your way.

Gone are the days when purchasing a CSA share meant trekking to the farmers' market and resigning yourself to a mystery box of whatever produce happened to come out of the ground that month. CSAs are now offering more choice than ever, with expanding lists of pickup locations, a greater variety of share sizes, delivery services, à la carte shopping options, and the ability to pause or resume your weekly share on short notice. CSAs are not just for fruits and vegetables anymore, either; small farms are teaming up with local vendors to offer add-ons that can include eggs, seasonal honey, fresh-baked bread or grass-fed beef. Those looking to explore some of the best CSAs in the Valley can start by checking out these local farms.
