In Eighth Day Farm’s CSA (short for Community-Supported Agriculture): At the beginning of the growing season in June, members pay a compiled sum to subscribe to a substantial allocation of the year’s vegetables. Members can come to pick up their share of what’s in season June-October, 1x per week. All of the food is grown there, with no pesticides. All leftover organic material is composted and the animals involved in the process are treated with dignity and respect. In addition, we run many programs that support giving food to the hungry and fighting for justice for the oppressed. Click below to
