CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) at Cecarelli Farms
Community Supported Agriculture, commonly known as a CSA or Community Shared Agriculture, is a program enabling the consumer access to fresh produce directly from the farmer for a cost. By the beginning of the growing season, the consumer commits to purchase a “share” of the farms produce, thus becoming a CSA member or shareholder. Payment to secure a share is required in full by May 31, 2017. This also enables the farmer to offset any costs of operation incurred at the start of the spring planting season, when it’s needed the most .
Cecarelli Farms is committed to supply its CSA members with a diverse selection of fresh picked produce on a weekly basis. Our CSA season runs from mid June to mid October, for 18 weeks. We offer 2 pick-up days at the farm for our members convenience to obtain their shares.
