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. 

Coconut Fiber

Coconut fiber (also called coir)  is one of the most popular growing mediums in the WORLD!  It is totally 'organic' and offers top performance in our hydroponic greenhouse.

Growing medium is the material that the plants grow in.  In an outdoor garden, the medium is the soil.

VanScoy Farms use the ground husks of the coconut's outer shell and is proud of using renewable resources.   The best thing about this medium is its organic quality. This medium permits a large oxygen capacity and allows wonderful watering holding capabilities.  The coconut fiber offers superior root stimulating qualities which also provides some protection against root diseases.
