Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct sale production model that forges a commitment between farmer and patron. The system provides advantages for each stakeholder. Each CSA member contributes a share at the beginning of the season. This allows the farmer to pay off his or her variable costs immediately. Fat Radish Farms variable costs amount to the purchase of seeds, soil amendments, tools, repairs, labor, fuel, packaging, irrigation, etc. In addition, the system allows the farmer to efficiently plan crop rotations, planting dates, and manage capital inputs. The share that each CSA member paid for during “pre-season” is paid back over a series of weeks in incremental distributions of produce. The CSA model provides each member with the advantages of receiving the freshest produce (we pick our produce less than 24 hours prior to delivery), a direct and personal relationship with their farmer, first-choice and knowledge of upcoming products and sales, recipe exchange, discounted bulk pricing, and the satisfaction of supporting a local, sustainable business. Many people claim that getting their weekly produce box is akin to the excitement of receiving a Christmas present!
CSA shares are mainly for vegetables only, but eggs and chicken from time to time as well. However, we do offer a member discount for our other farm products. When we have chicken, and eggs available, we will bring pre-orders to the CSA pick up. CSA members are welcome to pre-order additional vegetables at any time to pick up with their share.
