Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a unique arrangement between consumers and farmers. By purchasing a membership to a farm, community members share in the benefits and risks of local food production. In return, they receive a weekly share of vegetables or flowers plus a meaningful connection to their food, the land where it is grown and the people who grow it!
At Roots to River, we are striving to reclaim the integrity of the food system through personal connections. It is through our CSA that we create our most valuable relationships, knowing that the community has invested in our farm feeds us as farmers and in turn feeds our members.
All of our produce is grown at Roots to River Farm without the use of pesticides or chemicals and with the intention of nurturing the soil and ecology of the land. Members enjoy the freshest bounty of in-season, flavorful, colorful, heirloom veggies fruits and herbs. We'll be growing over 250 varieties of vegetables this season! Members receive a weekly newsletter with share info, growing updates and recipes, and are also invited to participate in on-farm events and volunteer opportunities through out the season!

Our unique share structure is designed to give members more flexibility and choice. At the Pick-up, members will be able to choose a certain number of items from designated tables, that way members can stock up on items they love and not feel obligated to take items they don't like. We always encourage members to try something new but endeavor to provide as much choice as possible!
