What is Community Supported Agriculture?
The CSA was originally a model conceived in the idea that neighbors bought a “share” of the farm at the beginning of the season, covering the cost of seed, irrigation parts, compost, packing supplies, and the myriad of things that the farmer needed to get the season going. In exchange, the “share-owners” received fresh, seasonal produce from the farm on a regular basis. Over the years, we have seen this model evolve. There are lots of “CSA” programs out there that now offer customized boxes with delivery to your doorstep, but essentially aggregate produce from many different farms in a wide geographical area. We pride ourselves on growing the majority of our fruits, vegetables and nuts right here in Winters, organically, as well as providing year-round employment for our hard-working, skilled crews. Our produce goes directly from our farm to your pick-up site, and is usually harvested within a few days of reaching your plate.
