CSA or Community Supported Agriculture, is a seasonal farming framework which allows the consumer to support farms in a unique way. By investing up front in the growing season by purchasing a farm “share”, members gain access to the farm’s best harvest whilst sharing the risk and up front costs of the season with their farmers.
Our CSA season runs for 25 weeks from May through October, where each week we harvest the farm’s abundance and divide amongst our members in the form of a share for pickup at one of two locations.
Each share will have an average of 7-8 (+/-) items per week.
Stay tuned for 2024 registration and information. Launching after the new year with a start in Spring 2024.
Every CSA program is defined by its farm, thus every CSA program is unique and different. No matter which you choose, what’s important is that you are considering supporting your local farms in this way because - IT MATTERS! Knowing the differences often helps in finding the farm which works best for you and your family.
In the last two years, Montgomery County farms have experienced a downturn in CSA membership which is leading to a localized movement to try to engage more with our community and spread the word about what makes CSA programs great.
"Love & Grit Farm is a slice of heaven! We absolutely LOVE visiting the farm and being CSA Members! We are excited to participate in the upcoming events and opportunities on the farm and couldn't speak more highly of what owner, Kristin is doing on and with her land!"
"This will be my third year in joining Love & Grit Farm LLC produce and herb shares. The weekly shares have been fresh and bountiful. At times extra produce is up for grabs free of charge. Talking with the farmers is a treat. Pick up is organized, orderly, and accommodating. An end of the season potluck is a joyous event."
"Their produce and products are delicious and grown with love and care. Their eggs are absolutely the best, most flavorful that we've ever had. And their hospitality and warmth is genuine and abundant. I can tell that Love & Grit loves nourishing and serving our community and I love being able to support them in return while also gaining delicious food."
"We've been supporting Love & Grit Farm since they started their CSA in 2020. I don't know how they do it, but it gets better every year! The vegetables and herbs are the best! The add on options from other local farmers and makers are always fun and delicious (beautiful flower bouquets, honey). If you are local, this is one business you'll want to support!"
