Houston's Original Community Supported Agriculture Farm (CSA)
We are Houston's first Community Supported Agriculture
(CSA) farm. We are committed to our
CSA Farm Members by serving them the highest quality 100%
local food available (under 100 miles). We recognize the we CANNOT feed ALL of Houston...
Instead, we lead by example by feeding a community who is committed
with us in restoring our local farm economy. For the health of all
involved and into the future.
WHAT IS A CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct connection to your farmers. In support of clean locally produced food we develop a relationship with our community and the land. We create a unique opportunity for families to receive a seasonal share of local products harvested fresh from the farm. We share a commitment with our members and hope for a bountiful harvest worth celebrating.
Our CSA is for those committed members who pre-pay for a seasonal supply of farm products. Rather than go to the bank for a loan before each season, we reach out to our community to help cover our cost for production, equipment, labor, etc. We plan and work the farm to provide our members with an equal share of seasonal produce and other farm products. The farms shares are available for pick-up at determined dropsites during the season. Members pre-pay for each season, and although you can discontinue at anytime, WE DO NOT issue refunds.

We use Farmigo to process our new share members. On Farmigo you will create a unique account, be able to track and make payments, choose your Farm Shares and renew your subscription in a few easy steps! Commitment and payments are on a seasonal basis. We do this because we need to know how many shareholders to grow for. New accounts will be placed on hold for 7 days. This gives us time to process your account. You will receive your share on the closest delivery date for your designated host site after the 7 day hold. CLICK HERE TO JOIN ONLINE >>
WHAT IS THE COST?
WHERE DO WE DELIVER?
This is a community building effort: In order to keep prices as low as possible, we have organized dropsites throughout the Houston Area to serve the local area within 80 miles from our farm. These dropsites have become supporting networks of like minded individuals concerned about their family's health, the local environment and our local economies (that's what a TRUE CSA is all about).
WHAT IF I’M OUT OF TOWN ONE WEEK?
Please let us know so that we can make arrangements, or we recommend that you find someone who is able to pick-up your share. The garden still grows and we still need to harvest. If you so choose, any shares not picked-up will be donated in your name.
THE WAITING LIST...
Each season is planned in advanced and there is limited space available. Membership is available first-come, first-served until we are full. If farm membership or a specific drop site is currently full for the season, Sign-up for our CSA Waiting List to be notified when memberships are available.
