What is a CSA?
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 their production. You will be provided a cooler of pre-selected delicious vegetables every two weeks or monthly, depending on your preference.
For you, it's a great way to try new fruits and vegetables. You'll be given exclusive recipes, treats, gifts.
How does it work?
When you subscribe, you are put on an automatically renewing subscription that bills monthly. You can cancel at anytime. Starting in October, your CSA box will be prepared with the latest fresh produce and treats. You will be notified when your box is ready for pickup Friday or Saturday.
You will have the choice of picking up in Ahwatukee on Fridays or on Saturdays at the Farm in Laveen or in Gilbert.
New subscriptions will be filled the following week (ie sign up for Ahwatukee CSA on a Monday, your box will be filled the following week on Friday (11 days later)
You can change your subscription or cancel anytime.
