FACSAP • our food, our farmers, our community • growing since 1997
Since our first harvest in 1997, we have been committed to providing our members with 100% organic or Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) food from local farmers. A weekly share in the harvest contains a diverse assortment of freshly harvested organic produce. Each share typically includes about ten to twelve types of produce (sometimes more) or approximately a 3/4 bushel
basketful. Occasionally, the share will also include other special items such as local organic raw honey, handmade soap and biologically-grown (organic) apple cider.
Our season runs from late May through early October, for a total
of 20 weeks of delicious, high quality produce and food to
nourish you and your family.
Among area CSAs, Fredericksburg Area CSA Project is unique
in several ways. Rather than being a single farm CSA, we are a cooperative of several growers from across our region. Our
farms range from urban gardens in downtown Fredericksburg
of Green Thumb Growers to much larger farms, like Hartland Natural Farm, which serves multiple markets. All of our farms
meet or exceed the national organic standard.
By joining our CSA, you become a shareholder—part owner
of the farms’ harvest. By investing in your area’s organic farms
even before the crops are sown, you help keep these farms economically viable. Your participation directly sustains your
local organic farms and supports the region’s agriculture-based community.
And while our focus is always on good, quality, local food,
we do so while striving to build and benefit our community.
From the annual members' meeting at the start of the season,
to occasional potlucks with members and farmers alike, to ways to reach out to fellow members and organizers online, we are
a community of support, ideas, and recipes for each other throughout the season and year-round.
Building a community between organic farmers and our members is a very important part of our mission. Together,
we continue making a difference!
