Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)!
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a mutually beneficial relationship between customer and grower. Imagine you are part of an special club that receives a weekly box of fresh, organic produce and gets to know a local grower. That is the essence of the Naked Acre Farm CSA. In the spring when vegetable are just starting to grow but farm costs are at their peak for the season, CSA members “invest” in the farm by purchasing a share. Then throughout the growing season, in our case a period of 16 to 18 weeks, each member is “repaid” with a weekly vegetable share of seasonal vegetable.
How it works
We offer one share which averages to roughly $25/week. The cost is $450 for the 16-18 week CSA season. Naked Acre Farm families have explained that the share can cover all or a large portion of their weekly veggies.
Depending on where you are located you will have options for pick up/delivery. Whether it is an on farm pick up, a farmer’s market pick up, or a drop point in Waterbury, exact details will be provided as Spring gets closer. Last season we did a drop on Tuesdays from 5-7 at a Waterbury location, the season prior we had an on farm pick up on Tuesdays from 4-7.
Then you get to eat and prepare your fresh produce. You can follow the farm’s progress through the (often) weekly newsletter. Recipes and inspiration will be provided in the newsletter.
Receive 10% bonus off regular market prices meaning with your $450 investment you will receive at least $495 worth of produce by the end of the season
