Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), was pioneered by biodynamic farmers bringing European biodynamic farming ideas to the United States in the early 1980’s. CSA programs at their core create a direct link between farms and people. One of the earliest CSA programs in the United States, and still operating today, was created on the Temple-Wilton Community Farm located in Wilton New Hampshire. We consider it a privilege to continue this New Hampshire tradition.
Our crops are picked at their peak, often times within a day or two of when they are made available in our market. Our crops are nutrient rich and taste better as there is a short interval between our harvest and your table. By purchasing our crops, you help maintain our farm and your support is reinvested within our shared community. As a CSA member you will likely eat more servings of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as experience a greater variety of foods. You also help promote a safer food supply as the more steps that exist between you and your food, the higher the risk for contamination. Please check out the FAQ link for specific information on our CSA.
We are currently enrolling customers for our Autumn CSA which starts mid-October and runs for 20 weeks ending in December.
One of the good things about the Sweet Hill Farm CSA is that there is no long-term financial commitment. We don’t look for up front payment as each week you merely login to your member account and submit your payment through our secure credit card processing system. If you feel it more appropriate to shop every other week you can. You are also free to add anything we have available in the farm market to your weekly CSA. Our online system has real-time availability. For example if you want us to add cheese, jam, crackers etc. we will gladly package this for you and have it ready along with your CSA share.
The Sweet Hill Farm CSA program design is based on our own experience as CSA members and interviews with other farmers operating their own CSA programs. In our design we have tried to balance the available farm resources with the needs of all those who support the farm.
We hope you will join and we look forward to sharing with you all we grow here at Sweet Hill Farm.
