Community Supported Agriculture CSA

Gifts of Love and Community Farm of Simsbury are very happy to announce our 2017 CSA Program!   Our Farm Manager, Jim Dombrowski cultivates  produce using certified organic farming practices - no chemicals, no GMOs, only fresh, healthy vegetables.   We strive to deliver produce more flavorful than anything you will find in a grocery store.  All of our produce is certified organic.

What is Community Supported Agriculture? Our subscription program, also known as community supported agriculture (CSA), creates a relationship of mutual support and commitment between the farmer and the community. Your annual fee helps cover the production costs of the farm; in exchange you receive a share of the organic harvest coming from the garden each week. CSA programs, which are growing nationwide, help deepen interest and support for organic farming and eating locally grown food.

Mission: Our mission is to provide our customers with fresh, certified organic, locally-grown produce. We want to help deepen the connection between our customers, the food they eat, and the ground in which it grows. Our goal is to make our CSA a great experience for all of our members.

By subscribing to the Community Farm of Simsbury CSA program, you will:

 * Enjoy delicious, nutritious produce grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

 * Help maintain productive Farmington River Valley farmland as open space.

 * Know your food dollars support a local farmer rather than pay for long-distance shipping, packaging, and refrigeration.

SHARES: Your share will extend over a 20-week period, June 15-October 26. Each share will generally feed a family of four with average eating habits.  For those with vegetable based diets, please consider extra shares.   Produce can range from refreshing leafy greens to the most interesting and tasty tomatoes one could imagine.  Typical weekly shares will include 8-10 items and weigh approximately 8-10 lbs. 

Pick-up is weekly at the Farm, 73 Wolcott Road, Simsbury where you will choose the produce you want from the harvest that week market style. Each week you will have a variety of fresh picked vegetables available to you. Prior to your pick-up we will email you our newsletter letting you know what has been harvested and providing recipes. If you can't use all of your produce that week or need to skip a week, you can donate your share to the Gifts of Love food pantry or Simsbury Social Services Food Closet. If you would rather pick up a pre-packed CSA bag at Gifts of Love in Avon, that option is available. 

New this year -- businesses or organization ordering 8 or more shares can receive free delivery on Thursday afternoon

INFORMATION: In order to bring the bounty of our farm directly to your table, we are making farm shares available for purchase. A farm share guarantees a weekly delivery of the best our farm has to offer throughout the growing season. Our shares may include some vegetables you’ve never tried before, as part of the CSA Program we will provide a monthly email including vegetable information and recipes.  

Share Cost: $300 for a full share or $150 for a half share
