It is hard to believe it is CSA time again. We kept the same arrangements as last year, splitting a Harmony Valley Farms CSA with our friends – the Deckers. In case you forgot, a CSA is Community Supported Agriculture. Harmony Valley describes it as:

It is sometimes described as a vegetable co-op, a weekly box delivery, a vegetable of the week club, or a produce subscription program, but we refer to it as Community Supported Agriculture, CSA.Families or individuals join our farm to receive weekly or bi-weekly deliveries of the fantastic organic produce we grow here at Harmony Valley Farm. Whatever is ripe and delicious for the week, goes into the box: washed, chilled and carefully packed. Then we deliver it to a neighborhood near you, if you live in or near Madison, Mazomanie,Viroqua and Onalaska or La Crosse, Wisconsin or The Twin Cities .The variety and quality – ask our members – is unmatched! We support the community with great, organic food and the community supports us!


Community-supported agriculture (in Canada Community Shared Agriculture) (CSA) is a socio-economic model of agriculture and food distribution. A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation where the growers and consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. CSAs usually consist of a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit in a vegetable box scheme, sometimes including dairy products and meat.
