A Community Supported Agriculture Enterprise
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a new idea in farming that reconnects families back to a local farmer that grows their food. Members receive shares in the farm’s bounty throughout the growing season, as well as satisfaction gained from reconnecting to the land and enjoying a direct link to a fresh, healthy, local food source. McDougal’s Farm is now accepting membership applications for the upcomig growing season. It’s easy: you pay for a season’s worth of vegetables before the growing season begins and we deliver them to the designated drop off site of your choice for 18 weeks, beginning early June to mid October. Early sign up is recommended and helps us with our planning.
What You Receive as a CSA Member
• Approximately 18 weeks of chemical free vegetables grown in an Earth friendly manner that are considerably more healthy and delicious than conventional produce, delivered as early as the second week in June through mid October depending on frost.
• Seasonally fresh herbs as available
• Weekly farm newsletters with useful recipes and healthy living tips
• Invitations and updates on family farm events, children’s and adult workshops.
• The opportunity to order additional canning vegetables
• Peace of mind in knowing that you are feeding your family nutritious, safely handled food reserved weekly just for you….no need to beat the market.
• A farm with which you and your family are welcome to be involved in the planting and harvesting as much or as little as you wish.
• The opportunity to share with your children home cooking & the growing process which we hope will be a part of their future.

How it Works
1. Pick up your box at an agreed upon location on the same day as delivery. This is important for freshness and as a courtesy to your host. Send a friend if you can’t make it.
2. Return your empty box when you pick up or receive the new one. We repack and use them again the following week.
3. Stay connected, read your families weekly emailed newsletter and provide us with feedback. This is one of the perks of a CSA….you get to know your farmer!
