Why Upper Pond Farm CSA?
We believe you should have access to healthy food grown without harmful conventional chemicals.
The best way for us to do this is by growing delicious vegetables and fruits, and providing them to our community. Our Community Supported Agriculture project is the embodiment of these values.
Believe in feeding yourself and family healthy, local produce? We do. Our CSA is simply this: a subscription to the weekly bounty from our farms. Our CSA features the most loved vegetables, fruits and greens. We introduce you to great new veggies, and provide you with support to eat and cook all of your share.
