What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s a model where farmers sell their produce directly to their customers or CSA members. Members sign up and receive a weekly order of fresh, locally grown produce - in our case - greens. Farmers benefit from this structure by pre-selling produce, which allows for better planning and less waste. Customers benefit from receiving high quality, nutrient-dense and delicious produce from a known local source.
What type of person participates in a CSA program?
A CSA program is for anyone interested in purchasing food grown locally, who is looking to support local business or who want more sustainable food options.
How does the Cornwall Smart Greens CSA work?
Smart Greens are grown in our hydroponic farm on Fourth Street West using vertical ZipGrow technology. Each Wednesday the produce is harvested and delivered to drop off locations where CSA members can collect their orders.
What comes in a Smart Greens CSA box?
A weekly CSA order includes ~6oz of fresh kale, one head of lettuce and 1oz of herbs or microgreens.
How much does it cost?
A weekly CSA order includes all of the greens above for $10.
Does the CSA stop for winter?
Good news! Because the produce is grown in an indoor, vertical hydroponic farm there is no ‘off-season’. You can enjoy local produce every week of the year.
Where do I collect my produce?
You can collect your produce from one of the following pick up locations: Simply Jennifer, Caveman Strong, Stomping Grounds, or Zipgrow Inc. *We also offer direct delivery to workplaces that have five or more subscribers.
How do I pay?
Payments can be made by Electronic Money Transfer (EMT) to firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I am away one week or want to cancel?
You’re welcome to take a break between deliveries or if you’re simply out of town during one of your prepaid weeks, a friend or family member is welcome to collect the produce on your behalf. You’re also welcome to cancel at any time, we simply ask that you give us one week’s notice so as not to waste any food.
