Our CSA program (Community Supported Agriculture) is a partnership between you and Stone Acres Farm. We take pride in offering high quality food and flowers to our community. All of our crops and flowers are grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. All of our livestock have 24/7 access to fresh pasture and receive Connecticut Grown non-GMO feed. We take great care to keep the ecosystem which supports the farm healthy and balanced, promoting biodiversity and focusing on soil health as the bedrock of our farming success.   

How does our CSA Work?

We offer produce, flower and chicken CSA programs. CSA members choose which CSA programs they would like to participate in. Each CSA program has options for the size and duration of shares. CSA members visit the farm to pick up their Stone Acres grown food and flowers. CSA members gain intimate access to the intricacies of local food production. As a CSA member, you become a shareholder in the season's harvest and experience all of the ups and downs of a farming season.

 

Veggie CSA

Starting in June, CSA members pick up a weekly assortment of vegetables. Veggie shares are available in full and half sizes for 12 or 20 week periods. We do our best to build as much choice into each weekly share, including several selections of fresh greens or roots bunches. Each week during CSA pick up time, CSA members come to the farm to pick up their CSA share, visit the farmstand, tour the fields, and interact with the farmers and other CSA members.
