What Is a CSA
Community Supported Agriculture began in the mid-1980’s as a means to connect local farms and their communities. Today there are over 13,000 CSA’s in the USA.
By purchasing a share at the the beginning of the season you create a direct relationship to your local farmers.
CSA’s benefit our communities and remind us that what we eat, where we buy it, and how we grow it, are connected to the decisions that all of us make three times a day… and ultimately that nature bats last.
Blue Moon Farm is offering a weekly share of fresh, certified organic produce for 26 weeks from May 30th until November 21st. Our pick up will be on Wednesday evenings from 5-6pm with one location in Urbana and one in Champaign. You have the option of paying a deposit at signup or paying for the full share up front. If you choose to pay a deposit the remainder of the share will be paid at the first pick up.
Some things you may see in your box: Salad mix, tomatoes, beets, spinach, squash, onions, eggplant, kale, broccoli, carrots, potatoes and more! Sound good? We thought so.
