Local CSAs from Westport to Greenwich

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Much like investing in a company as a “shareholder,” you can pay a lump sum in advance to support a local farm as they bring agriculture and meat to market. As a member, you enjoy the fruits (and veggies!) of your membership every week! CSAs offer flexibility and choices. Clean eating for our family and healthy environmental practices are additional benefits of joining a CSA. Our farmers work hard, and they appreciate being able to count on their members to enjoy their bounty.

Depending on your membership type and preferences, you’ll get a weekly or monthly share of seasonal produce, meat, or dairy products, typically starting in June and ending sometime in late fall. Many of the farms below have pick up options at various locations throughout Fairfield County.
