What is a CSA?

             That’s a good question! CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” It is a system by which a farmer can sell directly to consumers through a “share” program. At the beginning of the growing season, customers can purchase a share of produce that can be picked up at a set drop-off location. This helps farmers by ensuring that their crops will be sold. It also gives the farmer upfront income to get the season started. Meanwhile, customers can build a relationship of trust with their farmers, and know how their food is being grown. Customers will receive fresh, local goods all season long.

A Better Way to do a CSA!

                Good Ground Gardens’ CSA works a little different than a traditional CSA. Customers can build their own box of produce each week, choosing from a variety of items at the drop-off location, which can be preordered in our online store or simply bought at the market. Also, instead of losing your share if you miss a week during the season as in a traditional CSA, we will not charge you a missed week’s share. We only ask that you have your share account money used up by the end of the season, which extends from May to November. 

                Please note that there is a shared risk when you purchase a CSA share. “Shared risk” means that the farmer will do absolutely everything he can to ensure that you get your money’s worth each week, but that he cannot control tornadoes, major hail storms, and other unexpected weather events. We have ways to protect our crops from pests, extreme heat and drought, etc., but occasionally, natural disasters do happen. Because of the risk of weather, shares or nonrefundable after the first month following purchase. We will do everything we can to prevent losses, however. That is our promise.

                CSA Shares cost $100 or $200, plus Kansas Food Sales Tax.
