CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is how you can help the farm sell more vegetables and invest in the planting schedule. It allows the farm to count on certain income to grow the production. You will be provided a cooler of pre-selected delicious vegetables every two weeks or monthly, depending on your preference.
Who should join?
Anyone who loves trying new foods. Anyone who enjoys a Food Adventure. Anyone who wants to connect more with Amadio Ranch and be part of the "team" to help us grow. Anyone who has numerous mouths to feed (or just 1).
