Consider joining our CSA
We offer CSA (community supported agriculture) shares on a sliding scale to accommodate a variety of budgets and dietary needs. Pickup will be available at the Govans Farmers Market on Wednesdays and our weekly farm stand on Fridays. Seem more details below!
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and involves a weekly subscription of vegetables. As a CSA member, you commit to supporting our farm for the season, and you get the best picks of our harvest each week. We are offering a new CSA program that gives you the option to help sponsor a share for a family in need.
Our CSA shares are semi-customizable, so upon signing up, you will take a survey where you can opt out of items you don't want and opt in to items that you'd like more of when available. We will put together your shares with these preferences in mind, and include a new recipe each week for you to try.
For more information on the history of the CSA model, here's a link to an article about CSAs I wrote for the St. Ignatius E-zine:
A sample assortment of items that would make up a regular sized share in the fall. (1 bag salad greens, 1 buch kale, 1 bunch turnips, 1 bunch chard, 1 pie pumpkin, 1 lb peppers, 2 lbs eggplant, 1 lb heirloom tomatoes, and 4 lbs butternut squash)
2024 CSA Share Types and Pricing
2024 CSA Share Types and Pricing
Our CSA operates on a sliding scale: pay less if you are experiencing financial hardship, or pay extra to help someone in need get the same great produce that you enjoy. We've been able to donate over $2000 worth of produce to people in need each year in sponsored shares and deliveries to local food pantries thanks to our generous CSA members and donors! Our mission is to offer healthy produce, ecological education, and hospitality at little to no cost, and when you buy our produce you become a part of this community and support this cause.
The CSA will last 17 weeks, beginning the week of June 5th, 2024 and ending the week of September 25th. If you cannot pick up your share for a week, you can opt to have a someone else pick it up for you, or you can opt to donate it. We will assemble your share based on the preferences you fill out in the form below, and you are always welcome to swap items at the market or stand. You can also pick out your own items each week on a first-come first-served basis.
1. Wednesdays (starting June 5th) from 3pm-6pm at the Govans Farmers Market (1504 York Rd. Baltimore, MD 21212)
2. Fridays (starting June 7th) from 2pm-6pm at Oxbow Farm (17933 Foreston Rd. Parkton, MD 21120)
CSA is a great way to eat local and seasonal, but it is a big commitment. If you are hesitant about signing up for produce each week, you can always come and shop the farm stand for a season and see how you like it.
