What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is part of a growing social movement that encourages urban & rural citizens to share responsibility for the land where their food is grown as well as how their food is produced. In simplest terms,

CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers.

Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season. 

About Us

 

We are a family farm outside of Ridgeway, Ohio with a specialization in greenhouse growing and hay. We sell tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, lettuce and many other yummy crops year round at Worthington Farmers Market-come see us one day!

We specialize in CSAs - community supported agriculture, or in more simple terms, a produce subscription where you get the basic fruits and vegetables on a weekly basis.
