Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) at Echoing Hope Ranch (EHR) is an alternative farming model that has been gaining popularity in the USA for the past 20 years. There are many farm-specific methods and models used across the country, but a relationship of trust and mutual benefit between member and farmer is the foundation.
Member and Farmer (EHR) Benefits
Members have access to ultra-fresh food and recipes, exposure to farming and the land where the produce was grown, education and the opportunity to develop a relationship with EHR. Membership fees help the farmer cover the cost of the farm’s operation. Farmers have marketing opportunities prior to the growing season and the ability to develop a relationship with members.
When you purchase a membership in the CSA program, you are partnering with Echoing Hope Ranch. This partnership is more than just fresh, wholesome, local produce; it supports our mission of serving adults with autism.
Each share feeds two veggie lovers or four people who do not eat a large variety of produce throughout the week. You can expect fresh, wholesome, and nutrient dense produce that was picked just a few hours earlier. In each delivery, you will receive a weekly newsletter that contains recipes, information about the produce, and whether your produce is grown at Echoing Hope Ranch or at a partnering local farm.
Membership in EHR’s CSA program is $300 for 9 weeks or $150 for 4 weeks. Single weeks are available for $40 (one week notice requested, please email [email protected]).
