CSA Farms
Healthy Food. Healthy Farms. Everybody Eats.

Community Supported Agriculture—or CSA—is a partnership between a farmer and local consumers in which everyone shares the risks and the bounty of farming.

In CSA, you buy a membership in a nearby farm at the beginning of the season. Then each week you go to a designated site to pick up your box of the farm's harvest—vegetables or meat or perhaps an assortment of veggies, fruit, meat, eggs, maple syrup, and other farm products.

For details about cost and operation, contact a CSA farm that offers a pickup location near you. Some farms offer home delivery for an additional fee.

Here is a list of CSA farms operating in the North Country in 2010. Click on the farm name for complete contact information.
