Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a food system designed to get food directly from a farmer to a consumer, to cut out the middle man and offer the freshest possible produce. Think Stitch-Fix or Bark-Box but for all of your salad needs, direct from the source!
The main difference between CSA and Farmers Market, is the “shared risk” factor. In a CSA system, consumers purchase a season of produce up front and the farmer then shares out of the abundance of the produce for that season.
Here at Highland Heights, we want to offer a one-of-a-kind CSA to you, our customer. Since we have a greenhouse, we can offer the same consistent growing season year round. Our 20 week CSA will run through Winter 2019-2020 and offer our freshest grown lettuce, herbs and greens November 2019- March 2020.
All of our produce is grown right on our farm in Frankfort, IN and our CSA will only include what we grow. Each share will include at least 2 types of lettuce and one “extra” which could include a type of green, herbs or root vegetables. Due to the nature of growing and the unknowns of mother nature, it is possible that occasional substitutions will be made, but our goal is to offer the highest quality product that our customers have come to expect at Farmers Markets.
IT STARTS WITH A PROMISE
You commit to support a farmer and pay a deposit up front for CSA membership. We then start to grow produce for your family in the winter.
