Robin Gibson, the SHAREcroppers farmer, is tremendously dedicated and it shows in her production and her attention to detail.

What is Community Supported Agriculture? (CSA)
CSA is a way to reconnect families and individuals with the farms in their local communities. Considering that most produce in our country travels about 1,300 miles while our own neighborhood farms are often unable to survive, CSA is a refreshing commitment to local agriculture. CSA members support the farm by buying a share of the year's harvest. Members pay for their share in advance, providing capital for operating expenses such as seeds, compost, utilities, greenhouse supplies, etc. When the harvest begins, members come to the farm once a week and pick up their share. Learn more about CSA at LocalHarvest.org.
