Community Supported Agriculture Program


A membership to the CSA program will involve individual commitment to support us seasonally in our efforts to produce amazing food over a 12-week period, and in return the member takes their share of the produce we are able to grow over this period. Below I will outline the finer details and reasoning for this program.

Our goals and reasoning for starting this program:

  • Income security

    • Through this program we would like to achieve stability week to week, and unfortunately with a fluctuating customer base and the nature of working on the land has led to us making well below a living wage some weeks.

    • The upfront support of the CSA model supports the farm at the beginning of the growing season, allowing us to purchase seeds and materials for the months ahead, instead of scraping together resources to make-do.

  • Connection with our community

    • We believe our ability to develop relationships with our customers is one of the greatest assets of micro-agriculture and absolutely love being able to connect people with the food they eat.

    • Through developing a core community of support we hope to encourage people to visit the farm and be involved in their own food journey.

    • We want to encourage input and suggestions for the direction and focus of the farm from the people who value it the most - because those voices are the most important to us.

  • Seasonal routine

    • Planning for CSA programs gives us structure for our work lives, reducing the time we have to spend acquiring customers, doing administration and removing uncertainty in our week-to-week planning.

    • This structure will allow us to focus on growing food and improving our farm and practises to really excel, rather than juggling unpredictability.

    • Breaking the growing year up will allow us to plan for time off between CSA memberships instead of the uncertainties of working week-to-week which made this difficult.

Why support us in this way:

  • Members of our farms CSA programs will always be our priority

    • CSA seasons will have strictly limited member numbers according to our capacity and goals for the season.

    • We will strive to exceed expectations for CSA share boxes before pursuing produce sales elsewhere.

  • CSA is more than buying food

    • The purpose of CSA is for communities to support their local food networks through the ups-and-downs to ensure their own food security and that the community will retain and develop skills related to food and land stewardship.

    • CSA offers direct access to the freshest food possible, and in our case - food that is grown with an ethical focus (minimal food miles, minimal food waste, no land clearing, pesticide and herbicide free, minimal plastic and agricultural waste, etc..)

    • These programs allow individuals to be involved in the changing face of farming and fostering the future of ethical and decentralised food production by supporting the pioneers in their region.
