Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has been around for many years. CSA programs are a  popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer more recently. With the CSA consumers are learning how to change their diets to eat what is in season and preserve for the winter months. By eating the bounty of the season we are eating the most nourishing food and  reconnecting with the environment.

Here are the basics: 

Farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically, the share consists of a box of meat or vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Participants purchase a share and in return receive a quantity of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

This arrangement creates several rewards for both the farmer and the consumer.

Advantages for the farmer 

  • Allows time to spend marketing the food earlier in the year, before the long days in the field begin
  • Receive payment early in the season, which helps with the farm’s cash flow
  • Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow

Advantages for consumer 

  • Provides local and ultra-fresh food with all the flavor and nutritional benefits
  • Try new products and new ways of cooking
  • Visit and familiarize themselves with the farm on monthly pick-ups
  • Find that kids typically favor food from “their” farm even products they’ve never been known to eat
  • Develop a relationship with the farmers who grow the food and learn more about how food is grown

The farmers of Hemlock Hill Farm CSA  hereby pledge to responsibly manage the  funds and resources of your CSA  investments and to serve the membership  by applying their farming knowledge and  efforts to the production of farm fresh  meats to be distributed fairly amongst the  invested CSA membership. Share may  include eggs. 

I understand that as a CSA Member with  Hemlock Hill Farm CSA, I am an investor,  a shareholder in both the bounty and the  

financial risks of the farming season. I  understand that nature ultimately decides  what I will receive and when I will receive  it. I understand that my membership will  be completed only when I have made the  required financial investment.  

I understand that Hemlock Hill Farm CSA  does not offer refunds for CSA member  investment; although memberships may be  transferred if I am unable or unwilling to  continue my subscription and I understand  that I am responsible for locating someone  to buy out my share. Hemlock Hill Farm  CSA must give final approval prior to such  a transfer of membership.  

I understand that I am responsible for  pickup of my share at Hemlock hill Farm  and Market every week. If I am unable to  do so, I may designate another person to  pick up for me or contact Hemlock Hill  Farm to postpone or cancel your pickup.  

Thank you for joining Hemlock Hill Farm  CSA. We are glad to have you aboard.
