General Information

(All of this info may not apply to the Fall Extension CSA)

The term CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  CSA members commit to buying a certain amount of produce from the farm during a session. This enables us as farmers to better plan our production because we know we have a sure market for what we are growing. Each week’s produce may be different … like a surprise package of fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables!

We are committed to growing your vegetables in a sustainable manner using organic methods and environmentally sound farming practices. We are dedicated to growing our crops so that they are nutrient dense, meaning that they are the freshest, healthiest food you can get. If you ever have any questions about the farm or our growing methods we invite your questions and can arrange visits to the farm.

We occasionally buy fruits and vegetables from other farms in order to give our CSA members an enhanced selection. These farms practice the same organic methods that we do. The only exception to that last year was the apples we bought from Beech Creek Farm in Tallapoosa, Georgia. The apples were not organic, but the farm follows a low spray program. Everyone enjoyed their apples last season.

You pick up your CSA produce once a week at our farm.  You would choose a day to pick-up your CSA.  CSA pick-up days are  Wednesday or Thursday between 1:00 and 7:00.

At the farm, we have 8 to 10 different fruits and vegetables displayed farmers market style. When you arrive each week, you select 7 items, plus an herb. We call each item a share, so you’ll have 7 shares (plus an herb). Each share is the amount that you would commonly see prepackaged at the grocery store. A bag or a bundle or 1 or 2 pounds depending on what it is.

In each 10-week session, you may skip one week and make it up later. You must tell us if you need to use your skip at least 3 days ahead.  Some people give their week to friends or family if they are not able to come. You can also change the day of the week you pick up if needed.

We also offer a smaller CSA  where members select 4 shares plus a herb per week at a reduced cost.

The cost of the Vegetable CSA is $295 for 7 shares and an herb or $170 for a 4 share and a herb per 10-week session.

For CSA questions, please contact Mike or Judy Cunningham at mikec@countrygardensfarm.com or call 770-251-2673 or 404-944-7851.
