What is a CSA?

A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a program that helps to bridge the gap between consumers and their local agriculture. This program gives an opportunity to consumers who care about maintaining a quality diet as well as supporting local agriculture to become a part of a local farm (while saving money on produce). Generally, members purchase a share of the farm prior to the begining of the growing season and recieve a weekly box of the high quality, seasonal produce for the duration of the membership. It is a win win for both the farmers and the members.

What makes our CSA unique?

At Geneva Lakes Produce Farm & CSA, the objective of our CSA is to make more people part of our farm.  A traditional CSA will provide you with a prefilled box of seasonal produce each week for the season. Our CSA allows members to fill their own box by choosing from our full selection of fresh, high quality, homegrown produce. Doing it this way allows for members to get all of the produce they want, while not being required to take something they might not enjoy. Although we do provide a weekly recipe for our more unique items. Another benefit to filling your own box is that it gives members the opportunity to fill their box with produce to be jared, canned or frozen if they require a high quantity of those tiems. This all takes place over a 20 week season that begins on the week of June 12th.

How does the pricing work?

Becoming a member of the Geneva Lakes Produce CSA means that the money you pay into your membership will be used, by us, to put crops into the field and maintain them until the point of ripeness, which is when we will bring them to you. For this reason, the CSA payment is most valuable to us early in the season, so the price is lowest at that time. As the season progresses and our costs pass, the cost of the CSA also rises. So becoming a member early pays off. Although, reguardless of when the membership is purchased, it is still a considerable savings compared to normal retail prices.
