Community Supported Agriculture

2022 Horn Farm CSA

 Registration is closed for this event

Since 2016, the Horn Farm CSA has been providing local community members with weekly boxes of fresh, chemical-free vegetables and fruits. The CSA began in conjunction with our former internship program, which was designed as a way for people with little to no farming experience to learn to grow a wide range of vegetables for themselves or for market. In addition to serving as the training ground for our programs, the Horn Farm CSA feeds about 40 families each year. 

In the past several years, the Horn Farm Center's signature training programs have evolved and expanded beyond our production fields to focus on holistic land stewardship. While the Horn Farm Center is transitioning to more perennial production systems, we continue to support regenerative vegetable production on the farm. 

This year, we are pleased to continue to offer the Horn Farm CSA in partnership with the Kilgore Family Farm and other local farms including York Fresh Food Farms and Green Bean Farm. 

Through these partnerships we aim to offer the same range and variety of produce items that you have come to enjoy.  Here’s what you can expect….

Spring: lettuces, spinach, kale, swiss chard, spring onions, beets, herbs

Summer: kale, swiss chard, tomatoes, sweet&hot peppers, beets, summer squash, watermelon, cataloupe, onions, herbs, and more!

Fall: garlic, beets, turnips, winter squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, kale, swiss chard, spinach

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In the CSA model, members of the community pledge support to a farm, with the grower and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production. The consumer (shareholder) pays a fee at the beginning of the season in exchange for a regular, weekly share of the harvest. The farmers benefit from the financial support at the beginning of the season and the shareholders benefit from knowing they have a reliable, weekly supply of fresh, seasonal, chemical-free produce. The shareholder understands that the unpredictability of weather, pest problems, and other factors may result in some crops being bountiful while others may suffer setbacks. The CSA model is a relationship connecting the land, the grower, and consumer thereby putting us in closer touch with each other and the land which sustains us. 

Moreso, the Horn Farm CSA helps to support the educational and land stewardship programs at the Horn Farm Center. 

The CSA season lasts 20 weeks from June until October. Shares are available for on-farm pick-up on Wednesdays at the Horn Farm from 2:30-6:30 PM.

Cost: $750 Full Share (Weekly Pickup) or $400 Half Share (Biweekly Pickup)
