What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture

Connect with your food; the place it has been created and the people who created it. Why? To improve your personal health and community health. The food you put into your body is one of the most important aspects of your overall health.

What is in the food you eat? Do you know what chemicals were used in production? The easiest way to take control of what goes into your body, is to take stake in your food by getting to know your farmer. By purchasing your food from We Grow LLC, you know it is good for you! Aside from no synthetic inputs or GMO’s, it has been proven that fresher food is more nutritious. This means it has more nutrients! You’re getting more out of every bite. And it’s more affordable than you might think.

Worried about getting strange food?

In taking phone calls from people who are considering a We Grow LLC farm share purchase for the first time, we know that you are worried about getting a bunch of things that you don’t like to eat. It will be different for each one of you – beets, kale, collards, onions, squash…

Here’s what we do.

During the 18-20 week growing season, we will send you a message each week on your pick-up day reminding you to come get your share.  On your weekly newsletter, you will have a list of what is included. If you don’t want something (i.e. your kale or beets), you can get something else instead. Just let us know and we can make a swap of similar value. We are a small enough farm to accommodate your requests and we want to get this right for you. We don’t want you to feel overwhelmed by your weekly share and we don’t want you to feel like you are wasting food. There is not a more personal choice than the food we eat.

WE DO ASK that if it is something you’ve never tried, try it one time. Please. We’ve got some great recipes we want you to try before you give up. But the reality is not everyone likes every vegetable – ask my husband about turnips! Also, it could go without saying, please don’t ask us to substitute a majority of your items so that you end with a box with no variety.

At the ends of season, we may cut out a certain variety the following year based entirely on your feedback. The same goes for things you’d really like us to grow. Let us know in advance. We love growing and tasting new foods! Thank you for your interest in the food We Grow.
