Community Supported Agriculture

A Community Supported Agriculture program works like a subscription program for vegetables and fruits. CSA members pay local farmers in advance for vegetables and fruits to be produced in the upcoming growing season. By purchasing a "share" in the farm, members share in both the risk and the bounty of the harvest while helping small farmers cover the cost of production (such as seeds, equipment maintenance, and labor). Throughout the growing season, members receive a portion of each harvest that includes a variety of vegetables. These baskets of fruits and vegetables are often brought by the farmers to a central location for convenient pickup by CSA members.

First, take the Growing Good Health Survey!

Our farm is located in Bon Aqua, TN, less than an hour from Nashville, on 78 acres of pasture and forest. We're growing 1.25 acres of vegetables this year and our cows and sheep are on enough pasture to be chewing their cud and maintaining healthy, diverse grass and soils. We are currently focussing on veggies and pastured meats.
We aim to create a closed farmstead system where we work in concert with nature to have the smallest impact on the land. We do not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or any other chemical inputs! 

With the Market Credit CSA membership you pre-purchase credit (like a gift card for yourself) to spend at our market location and our CSA pick up on Monday. We immediately tack on a 10% bonus credit to your purchase as a thank you for investing in our business. For instance, if you purchase $100 worth of credit you get $110 worth of credit. This credit is good at our Market Stand on Saturdays at Richland Park Farmers Market. You can purchase anything we have at our stand including veggies, herbs, flowers, bread, and meat. The beauty of this system is that you get more than your money's worth, you can use the credit whenever you want, and your credit rolls over from season to season. As with the traditional CSA we will send out an email each week detailing what will be at the market each week, farm updates, and any specials available to Free-Choice and Market Credit CSA members.
