CSA programs throughout the Garden State offer nutritious, local produce and other food items —and a way to help support New Jersey farms. Usually hosted by individual farms, CSA offers members a weekly or bi-weekly box of fresh-from-the-field food. Members sign on during a specified period and then share in the seasonal harvest. Membership fees, often paid in full at sign-on, provide farms with much needed operational funds throughout the year. Boxes are often picked up at the farm, but many programs also offer pick-up locations at partner venues, such as shops and farmers’ markets, in various communities. CSA sign-up period is now happening at many farms statewide, including those below. We encourage you to call or visit the farm websites now for complete details and applications forms.
