Community Supported Agriculture at Woodside Farms
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture is a mutually beneficial relationship between the farmer and the community member, in which the farmer is able to better plan and budget for the season to come. A CSA "member" will financially invest at the beginning of the season, in a share of the seasons bounty. In return, the farmer will grow a variety of fruits and vegetables that the member will pick up each week. CSA members are always priority and reap the benefits by receiving the greatest variety and first pick of veggies just coming into season. The members also have a shared risk, as weather and other unforeseen circumstances can result in crop losses.

How do I get my veggies?!
This year, as our first year as a fully operational farm, we will not be following a "traditional" CSA model. There will not be an initial purchase of the full season's produce. Instead, we will be having weekly (Wednesday evening and Saturday morning) pick-ups at the farm, where we will have our produce available to purchase, beginning in late April to early May. This pick-up is not limited to community members, however the Chickahominy Falls homeowners will receive a discount. You may buy a single item or purchase a "half share" or "whole share" for a discounted rate on all of the week's offerings. We will send out a newsletter at the beginning of the week to let you know what will likely be offered that week. In 2020, we will be following a more traditional CSA model. Please always reach out with any questions you may have!
