  • Fresh Produce for the Campus Community

    The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program helps support the farm by providing another outlet for selling produce. Due to high demand, plans are in the works to expand the program to include additional shareholders.

  • The CSA Program

    The college offers a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program available for faculty and staff during the summer. Depending on the harvest, CSA members will receive a combination of vegetables, small fruits, herbs, and sometimes beautiful cut flowers.

CSA Program

The Farm at Davidson has launched the college's first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. It allows participating members of the college community to pre-purchase a share in the season's crops. This arrangement has a reciprocal benefit: it provides the farm with a dependable, fixed source of up-front income, and gives shareholders a regular supply of naturally grown, local produce.

The CSA runs from May 24-July 26 (10 weeks) for faculty and staff of the college. There are currently 26 members, all of whom have the option of renewing in the spring. Plans for expansion could increase the membership to 40 families. The season may also get extended beyond the 10-week period.

The membership fee is $25 per week, for a total of $250 for the season. This is paid through payroll deduction in two parts, the first half in April, and the second half in May.

For more information, or to inquire about membership, email Farm Manager Theresa Allen at thallen@davidson.edu.
