The 2019 CSA Program
We are incredibly excited to offer our 2019 CSA Program to our community.
Every two weeks, our CSA members will receive fresh produce grown on our farm, and can add products from our farm partners, including eggs, meat, honey, hot sauce, and more.
Our desire is to grow good food for our neighbors - so we encourage residents of Lithonia, Stonecrest, Redan, and Stone Mountain to join, and support your neighborhood farmers.
What is a “CSA”?
The “CSA”, also called Community Supported Agriculture, is about cooperative economics: members are buying local, seasonal food directly from a farmer in their neighborhood. Member can purchase a season of produce up front, which provides better planning for the farm, and minimizes risk and waste. The farmers work hard to provide the very best produce each week, and commit to building a deeper relationship with their members. Together, we have the opportunity to build healthier communities, and support local farms.
how does it work?
To join, members can enroll in one of three seasonal options: Spring/Summer, Summer/Fall, OR Full Season.
We will have freshly harvested produce for the week displayed on the table at the Lithonia Farmers and Artisans Market on Saturdays. Members will get boxed "fixed" and "choice" items - for the “choice” items, we will put the produce into groups - for example, a “Group 1” may be collards, kale, and spinach. You would be able to choose 2 out of the group. This style of pick-up allows for more flexibility for our members - this way, we are able to make sure that you don’t have to take vegetables you have tried and don’t like. Each week we will list on the chalkboard in front of our tent how much of each group you can choose from.
Produce will be available every two weeks - and members will receive 7-11 items, depending on the season.
Spring/Summer: 5/4 - 8/24 (9 weeks)
Summer/Fall: 9/7- 11/16 (6 weeks)
Full Season: 5/4 - 11/16 (15 weeks)
What kind of produce do you grow?
We grow items that thrive in this region. The amazing thing about being in the Southeast, is that we can grow a lot.

Spring / Summer: spring onions, spinach, lettuce, beets, mustard greens, collards, green beans, carrots, summer squash, zucchini.
Summer / Fall: okra, tomatoes, onions, green beans, collards, kale, black eyed peas, corn, bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, turnips, sweet potatoes.
