CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a partnership between a local farmer and members of a "city community". The community supports the agriculture, or farm, by becoming shareholders, stakeholders and farm-supporters. CSA promotes fresh produce and local agriculture, creating relationships between local farmers and suburban communities. This relationship benefits all participants, boosing individual, community, economic and environmental health.
Peaceful Prairie Farms will sells "memberships" in our farm in advance of the season allowing us to purchase seeds, equipment, and supplies necessary to begin growing for the year. Members make a season long commitment to the farm through the purchase of a membership.
The members (or shareholders) in return receive a package of local farm-fresh seasonally harvested produce grown using organic practices every week during the summer season. Our summer season begins the first week of April and finishes the end of August, an average of 22 weeks per season. Our fall season begins after Labor Day and goes until Halloween, an average of 8 weeks. The winter season will be 6 deliveries between December and March, as the climate allows (possibly every 2-3 weeks). This is one of the ways the farm supports the community by providing some of the freshest, most delicious, and good-for-you produce.
