Joining a Community Supported Agriculture program, or CSA, is a way of supporting local farmers by paying in advance for a share of their weekly harvest. Farmers typically will deliver boxes of weekly, or monthly. Some deliver to a pre-determined distribution point, others will deliver to your home or office.
Our local CSA opportunities include:
Blue House Farms: In addition to produce, options include pastured eggs and flowers.
Fifth Crow Farm: Specialty greens, beans, and berries. Pasture raised eggs. firstname.lastname@example.org
Potrero Nuevo Farm: Call 650-726-5700
Green Hearts Family Farm: Will deliver to your home or office, from Half Moon Bay north to San Rafael. Weekly boxes available with no commitment for $33 ea., or seasonal shares from $500/17 boxes. (831) 801-0611
