What is a CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a subscription-based business model sometimes called a farm share or farm subscription. Individuals and families prepay for a fresh food delivery subscription. Members receive a share of what the farm produces. An Edible Earth Farm CSA offers an extremely diverse program with lots of variety. It's why the farm and their CSA has been so successful.

Small CSA Share vs. Large CSA Share

Some CSAs offer their small share customers less variety. Not us! We strive to provide a wide variety of fruit, vegetables and herbs to all members, regardless of their share size. Our Large CSA Share includes 50% more produce than the Small Share, depending on the week's harvest. A Small CSA Share feeds approximately 1-2 adults [1 adult who loves veggies and 2 adults who eat veggies infrequently] and a Large CSA Share feeds approximately 1-2 adults and 1-2 children. Contact us for large family options. We grow 200+ varieties in an effort to provide our CSA customers with a wide variety of product.

Full Choice CSA Share vs. Traditional CSA Share

A Traditional CSA is a lesser cost CSA share where the farm decides what goes in the box each week. The value of this share type is greater than a Full Choice CSA. The farm can plan without taking the unique needs of each customer in mind. A Traditional CSA improves farm efficiency and greatly reduces waste. We pass these savings onto the customer. With a Traditional CSA, you may receive an item here or there that you don't like. However, the value received is far greater than the cost.

A Full Choice CSA is a higher cost CSA share where members can choose all of what goes into their weekly box. Small CSA customers can choose 7 items per week and a large CSA customer can choose 10 items.

Is Edible Earth Farm's CSA 100% Organic?

It depends. If you purchase a Choice CSA, you can create a pure organic delivery by only selecting items that are grown by Edible Earth Farm. Our members value a diverse CSA experience and there are very few certified organic producers in Western PA; therefore, the Traditional CSA is a mix of certified organic products and non-certified, locally grown products.

When Does the 2020 CSA Begin

Deliveries will begin the week of June 14th. First delivery day will be June 17th or 18th, depending on your delivery day. Deliveries will be made weekly for 19 weeks ending in mid-October. Our CSA start date will be announced to members via e-mail. We'll also announce the CSA start date on our website.

What is a Vacation Hold and How Does it Work

Leaving town for a week? Heading on a family vacation? No problem! Login to your account and place your CSA delivery on hold. Credits can be applied at anytime during the remaining deliveries and will allow members to "double up" their share.

Access to the Edible Earth Farm Online Farm store

Edible Earth Farm's CSA members also have access to an online farm store where additional items can be purchased and delivered with their weekly CSA. Items include: chicken, cheese, honey, eggs, produce, bulk produce, fruit, canned goods and more.

CSA Pricing

We have a dynamic pricing model that rewards early signups. Prices reflect a year of service which includes access to the off-season farmstore from January through mid-June, home delivery service, Summer CSA and more. See above for list of member benefits. Advance to the registration page to see current pricing.

Is a CSA Right for You?

• It is important to you to have a relationship with a farm and the farmers and you want to better understand what goes into producing fresh food.

• It is important to you to have super fresh, local food from a Certified Organic farm.

• You like unusual foods and are you willing to try new things. Especially important if you're considering a Traditional CSA.

• You are willing to adjust your cooking and eating habits to embrace the CSA way.

• You are NOT looking for a “deal”.

• You understand there is some risk in participating in a CSA.

• You want to find a farm that is committed to providing positive social impact through contributions to local food banks, families in need, women's shelters and homeless shelters.
