CSA

Zestful Gardens CSA

Support sustainable farming and receive fresh, organic produce every week!

Benefits of a CSA

Zestful Gardens CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) members:

  • receive the freshest produce possible
  • develop a relationship with a local farmer
  • participate in events on the farm and support sustainable farming
  • receive a weekly share of 6 -10 fresh items, harvested that morning and selected from over 80 different varieties grown on the farm

Support sustainable farming

People who recognize the value of investment in their local economies and sustainable agriculture are establishing direct relationships with the small-scale farmers nationwide. CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Members share opportunities with the farmer with over 80 varieties planted at Zestful Gardens, but every season brings unknown environmental variables to the harvest outcomes.

Choose Your CSA

Our standard CSA runs from June through October, but spring, fall, winter and year-round shares are available on a limited basis.

One share is perfect for one healthy vegetarian appetite or for a family of four. Some people like to split their share with a neighbor or friend.

CSA Members may also buy eggs and meat (when available).
