Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a produce subscription program where people can purchase a weekly share of a farm's harvest. This allows them to participate in the season’s harvest and receive vegetables that are locally in-season as the summer progresses.
CSA members register and pay for their share(s) at the beginning of the season and receive weekly portions, which can come in a small, medium, or large box, for the duration of the season. The produce they receive every week depends on mother nature and what has ripened that week.
All produce is locally grown and organic.

ABOUT LANCASTER FARM FRESH CO-OP
The Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative (LFFC) is a non-profit organic cooperative of small-scale, Certified Organic farms in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. With now over 100 farmers, LFFC began as a handful of families who’d realized they were traveling to and competing in the same marketplaces. Rather than continue to compete, the farmers decided to work together as a cooperative, share their resources to better serve their goals, and sustain their livelihood.
As always, LFFC farmers continue to focus on creating nutrient dense, hyper local, healthy, and unsurpassed quality produce.
Aside from the organic certification agencies, LFFC, as a cooperative, has very strict standards regarding land management and animal welfare. Their farmers regularly build up their soil, test plants, rotate crops, and practice pasture maintenance to sustain a healthy environment for our products.
