Community Supported Agriculture, as they write at Local Harvest, "has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer... A farmer offers a certain number of 'shares' to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a 'membership' or 'subscription') and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season."

We are absolutely committed to organic growing principles. Our food was completely free of synthetic chemicals, and completely free of genetically modified seeds. (See our section on Agri-Culture for more on how we grew). We also were a gateway to the Olive Hill Community Growers, as diverse and friendly a bunch of neighbors as you could wish for.

Just for good measure, every share had a fresh loaf of bread – either traditional Mennonite whole wheat bread from Mrs. Wise, or Alex's famous bagels, scones, or artisan bread. All made with chemical-free flour.
