Joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) is one of the most meaningful ways you can support diverse, local farmers.
With a Big River Farms CSA membership, you receive a weekly delivery of fresh, organic produce grown by beginning farmers. Plus, you’re helping those farmers to access land and infrastructure, to use sustainable practices, and to learn about marketing and CSA logistics. Our farmers include immigrants and refugees, BIPOC and others who face discrimination in agriculture and systemic barriers to accessing land, capital, and markets.
How Does It Work?
This year, we’re offering veggie and fruit shares in various sizes. As a Big River Farms vegetable share member, you’ll receive 18 weeks of fresh, seasonal produce grown by emerging farmers in our education program! Multiple farmers grow a variety of veggies that are harvested for each week’s CSA box, and the fruit comes from nearby farm partners.*
