CSA stands for community supported agriculture. The concept has been around for quite some time but it's experiencing a bit of a resurgence in the age of COVID as more and more consumers are on the hunt for food delivery options.
In short, it means you purchase a "share" of the farm, or become a member by paying a one-time fee before the peak farming season, then you receive a box of veggies at a pickup spot convenient to you. These deliveries typically happen weekly. Prices can vary by the number of weeks the CSA lasts and the amount of food you're getting each week. Some farms are offering payment plans to help any interested parties who may currently be experiencing less or no income.
PA Veggies has an entire directory for Pennsylvania CSA programs, which you can sort by county or location and preferred radius, but we've rounded up every option currently listed in the directory in case you would like to browse below.
Please explore with a grain of salt and plan to call the location for the most up to date information as many operations are understandably having to shift their regular routines and services to accommodate regulations and other uncommon needs arising as a result of the global pandemic.
