Community Supported Agriculture (CSA): HOW IT WORKS
Members join the CSA in order to reserve a weekly supply of fresh produce from the farm for 18-20 weeks of the growing season. Members receive only what is grown on the farm and in season. If there is a crop failure, or if heavy rains or a cold spring delay the onset of planting, members may not receive each listed crop or may receive more of one thing and less of another. When we have an abundant harvest, members reap their fair share of the bounty! As a result, we (farmers and consumers together) share in the risks and benefits of farming.
Maple Lane Farm now has a high tunnel as part of our operation. This extends our growing season, protects crops and allows our selection to be more diverse!

The average US citizen spends less than 12% of his or her disposable income on food.
A CSA share is both a great value and a great way to support the local economy.
