Community Supported Agriculture
What is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
A CSA is a program that some farms have where individuals can choose to support the farm through the purchase of a “share” in the farm. A share is a set amount of vegetables over a set period of time. CSA’s have become a popular way for consumers to buy local and seasonal produce directly from the farm.
How does to Penn Farm’s CSA work?
The CSA at Penn Farm lasts from late June to early August (7 weeks). By participating in our CSA or “buying a share”, you will receive fresh produce weekly.
Our CSA is a great way for Penn Farm and William Penn High School to provide a valuable service to our community. In return, this serves as a method of monetary support for Penn Farm and our Agriculture Programs at William Penn High School.
You will love knowing where and how your food is grown!
The CSA benefits the students of Penn Farm by allowing the students to be able to grow, sell, and answer any questions the consumers might have about the produce. This provides students with valuable business skills in the field of agriculture.
