What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture is a direct relationship between farmers and eaters, a farm and a community. By joining the Crimson & Clover Farm CSA you become a shareholder in the farm – sharing with us in both the risks and the rewards of each growing season.
Shareholders pay up front for a seasons’ worth of beautiful vegetables grown right here on the Northampton Community Farm. By purchasing a share of the harvest at the beginning of the season you are helping us get the year off to a great start – buying seeds, fixing equipment, and hiring our fabulous farm crew. In exchange, we provide you with a weekly selection of delicious, freshly picked vegetables for the length of the harvest season. You will get to know the farmers growing your food and you and your family will have a farm-away-from-home at Crimson & Clover Farm and the Northampton Community Farm.
By joining the Crimson & Clover Farm CSA you will be supporting a family farm, keeping your food dollars in the local economy and supporting the success of the Northampton Community Farm. Together we can create a farm rooted in community that grows food in an ecologically sound way and serves as a hub for celebration, gathering and education.
