CSA at Pearlstone


As a CSA member, you allow our farmers to focus on growing the healthiest, most delicious food while caring for the land.
In return, you receive an abundance of fresh local produce every week*!

CSA: Community-Supported Agriculture

This model of farming, distribution, and marketing developed in many farming communities around the world from Europe to Japan. Booker T. Whatley, an agriculture professor, pioneered the model in the 1960s. as a means for Black farmers in the US to increase profitability.

When you sign up as a member, the share you purchase in the early season helps farmers begin growing. In exchange for their support or “seed money”, share members receive a weekly box of vegetables from that farm.

The harvest will allow you to eat with the seasons!

In the Spring there will be strawberries, lettuce, snap peas, parsley, and more.  In the Summer tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, onions, basil and more.  In the Fall we’ll enjoy carrots, beets, kale, garlic, cilantro, and more.
