A CSA member buys a “share” of the harvest in advance of the growing season. This helps LCF with the capital needed early in the year to buy seeds and supplies. When the growing season is underway, the CSA shareholder receives a weekly share of the farm’s harvest; out of the ground fresh, high quality, vegetables grown using best organic practices. The CSA share distribution is set up “market style”, with shareholders filling their own bags or boxes with specified quantities of vegetables.
LCF sell CSA shares in order to be able to operate our program and fulfill our mission of hunger relief. Every year we donate thousands of pounds of fresh and healthy vegetables to local families and food pantries in our area.
