Community supported agriculture

CSA is a direct partnership between farmers (growers) and consumers (members), where some of the risks and rewards of farming are shared.

It’s an empowering model that brings together people, planet and producer.

People: To create community around food and land, by connecting people (our members) to where their food is grown, by offering volunteering opportunities and social events.

Planet: To grow food, on a small scale, in an environmentally conscious way to enhance our soils and local ecology.

Producer: With a membership model we aim to encourage our members to commit to a year’s vegetables by paying for their share of the year’s harvest up front, this means our crop plan can be more efficient; we have zero crop wastage because we know exactly how many people we are growing for.

Community Supported Agriculture as the name spells out, is about community! The model was developed back in 2008 with an initiative from the Soil Association, the aim being to reconnect people with where their food comes from. The defining values and principles of CSA UK can be found here!

The beauty is you don’t need to have any skills in growing. We do all the planning so you can come along and help out when we have big planting days or harvest days. There are many ways to get involved!

CSA members have an understanding that through regular monetary payments they have an equal share in the harvest, and whilst we, the growers, will do our very best to create abundance, as members you are prepared to accept less veg at times when harvests do not come to the hoped fruition.

Basically a CSA wants you to connect with your food, to get involved, giving your time, as much or as little as you wish.
