WHAT IS A CSA?
Maggie Mae Farm (MMF) is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm. A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farming operation where the growers and consumers come together to share the risks and benefits of food production. Our members make a scheduled financial contribution to the farm in late winter or very early spring. This payment is called a Share. Starting in June the members then visit the farm on a weekly basis to pick up their portion, or share, of the production.
It is important to understand that farming is a seasonal and unpredictable undertaking, and the exact selections and quantities included in the weekly distribution will change as the season progresses. The varieties of produce and meats provided in the weekly share are the farmer’s choice and will greatly depend on seasonality and productivity. Sometimes the varieties may be unique or unusual – don’t worry, Chef Glenn will be happy to give you cooking tips and recipes to help you make the most of your share.
Buying a share means you join us in the risk and rewards of farming. We will do our best to provide you with a diverse selection of quality foods. Because you are sharing the risk, however, there are no refunds for crop failures. On the other hand, you are the beneficiary should certain crops do exceedingly well.
All the produce and product is raised or grown onsite at Maggie Mae Farm. Nothing is trucked in so we can we guarantee that everything in your basket is 100% local. We only use heirloom or heritage varieties, that are grown naturally, sustainably, and using natural resources conscientiously. Our livestock are humanely raised, free range, on pasture, without the addition of hormones or antibiotics. By becoming a MMF CSA member you join an interconnected, environmentally responsible, healthy, community oriented food system.
