Lost Corner Farm’s CSA program
If you have made it to this webpage, congratulations! You must already care about where your food comes from and how it is produced!
And that is exactly what CSA is about!
CSA (which stands for Community Supported Agriculture) is a unique model of local agriculture that creates a direct relationship between the consumer and the farmer. In a day and age when unsustainable agricultural practices abound, CSA allows you to be part of a movement to change the way we produce and distribute our food to a model that is sustainable for the farmer, the consumer, and, let’s not forget, the soil.
The concept of CSA was created in the 1970s in Japan by a group of concerned citizens, just like you, who wanted a way to connect with their food, know where it came from, and stay informed on how it was produced. “Teikei”, the Japanese word for this relationship between the consumer and the farmer, means “putting the farmer’s face on food.” The concept caught on in Europe and by the mid-1980s Teikei had found its way to the United States.
The great thing about being a part of a CSA is that it isn’t just about food. It’s also about having fun and giving yourself and your family something to look forward to each week. Many people compare it to receiving a weekly gift… a surprise for the whole family!
While you will receive lots of produce that you know and love such as tomatoes, sweet corn, lettuce, and green beans, you will also receive some things that might be new and different, such as kale, swiss chard, bok choi, and Chinese cabbage. To help you get started with less familiar items, we will include a weekly newsletter to go along with your share that will give you recipe ideas to help you get the most out of your CSA experience.
