What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system of farming that brings together farmers, community members and agricultural land into a mutually beneficial relationship.
Members of the community purchase a "farmshare" for a full growing season. This commitment implies a willingness to share with the farmer both the bounty from the land and at least some of the risks of its production. The farmer receives fair and guaranteed compensation. In return, members receive a variety of fresh picked produce, sustainably grown by farmers they personally know and trust.
Now in our 13th growing season, Anchor Run has always provided a traditional CSA experience to its share owners, who make regular visits to the farm for produce pick-up, field work, and social gatherings. From the beginning, CSA has been our purpose and our passion, and virtually 100% of our operation is devoted to production for CSA share owners.
