Find a CSA Farm

  • CSA’s come in a variety of product categories including: the common produce csa, meat, dairy, grain, fruit, malt of the month and even community supported medicine
  • Shares come in many different forms: i.e. a box/bag share, visit the farm to pick your share, workplace shares, etc.
  • Different payment options — here’s a tip to help spread the cost of the share over pay periods – some farms offer payment plans, UMASS 5 offers an interest free payment plan and some farm accept SNAP payments
