  • How long do I have to use my Farm stand CSA card? Farm stand card members please remember that your farm stand card expires at the end of our season on December 23, 2018. Any outstanding balances left on your card after that date will be donated to the local food pantry.

A guide to your CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) was originally developed as a food distributing model to benefit the community, environment, and farmer. Weekly shares of our own Certified Organic produce will start in late May and go through the end of October (24 weeks). Each week you’ll get a variety of 5-10 different veggies. The variety and quantity will change according to the season. Your CSA will help you learn about new and interesting vegetable varieties and all the different ways to prepare them! You’ll develop a relationship with your farmers and learn about where and how your food is grown!

We use tractors to cultivate our crops and keep them weed-free. No herbicides here!

CSA’s are a great way to help sustain your local farm during the winter months when we are busy growing seedlings to be planted in the spring, building infrastructure, purchasing farm equipment (tractors are a farmer’s best friend!), fertilizers, seeds (organic seeds are expensive!), potting soil, tools and growing supplies and so much more. Our CSA model is a risk-free investment so you are always guaranteed to receive as much as you put into it. Community Supported Agriculture is a win-win for farmers and consumers.

All members will receive a weekly newsletter with farm updates, recipes, weekly CSA information and members’ only events. Primary communication will be via email.

Testimonials

“We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience as Langwater Farm CSA members and proud to say we have been supporters since the beginning!  This farm is truly a treasure in our community and we feel very fortunate to have it so close to us.   For three years now, our family has enjoyed preparing and eating the wide variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs that come across our table on a weekly basis.  We are constantly experimenting with new meals and recipes which has made each week a healthy and fun adventure! Their staff is always extremely friendly and knowledgeable and able to give us tips on preparation and recipes if we ever get something in our share that is a new food for us.  We thank you for all that you do.” -Beth, Eric, Bret and Gabe

“I’ve been a member since day one. I had just heard about what a CSA was, so I went online in search of one in my area. This one was just getting started, the next town over, and it was organic to boot, so I thought I’d give a try. It was actually exciting to me! And since that first meet and greet with my new farmers, I’ve been more than impressed with every aspect of this farm. What planning and execution skills these “kids” have. They’ve built a wonderful farmstand that is always a pleasure to come to. Rain or shine. I’m thrilled with the quality of all the fruits and veggies and look forward every week to the friendly faces and warm conversation. I’ve gotten veggies I never even knew existed in my weekly share, and that is such a fun thing to share and experience with friends and family too. I know I’m eating healthier than ever. And the weekly newsletter is great too and always informative. Like I said, I’ve been more than impressed with every aspect and very thankful for my CSA friends at Langwater Farm.” -Jon R.
