Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Nuestro Huerto is excited to offer CSA shares for the 2012 season and is looking for members. Please email nuestrohuertoworcester@gmail.com for a complete brochure with pricing, bike delivery, and payment options!!

What is a CSA?

A CSA is a payment system where farm members purchase their “share” of vegetables at the beginning of the season, at a time when farmers incur their highest costs.  This provides farmers the capital they need to get started each season.  Paying in advance also means that together, members and farmers share in both the risks and bounty of the season’s success.

Each week members receive their share of a wide variety of vegetables and herbs at the farm that will change based on the season.

The work commitment gives members the opportunity to help on the farm, learn about where their food comes from, and interact with others who also support the farm.

Nuestro Huerto aims to remain flexible in order to provide members with a fair and reasonable opportunity for obtaining the freshest, most local produce available.  Payment plans, work-shares and EBT/Food Stamp options are available, so please ask!
