CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.
CSA is a model that allows consumers to support small farmers by providing them with cashflow during the off-season. For example, we sell out of our honey before the end of the year – but we encounter our highest annual expenses in early spring, before the honey season begins (this is when we order bees to replace those that didn’t survive the winter; purchase hive components such as boxes and frames to replace old equipment; and order medication to treat our bees for mites before they can do any damage.) In return, CSA members get first pick of the honey once we begin to harvest (as well as other exclusive perks such as visits to our beeyard and first access to new or special products).
CSA orders are typically ready for pickup by September 1st. You can pick up your CSA order from us here in the County or we can ship it right to your door.
