What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for consumers and farmers to share the risks and benefits of food production in a given growing season. By purchasing a CSA share before the growing season starts, you are supporting a local farmer in advance in exchange for receiving a weekly share of the harvest all season long.
CSA programs allow consumers to enjoy eating fresh food grown right in their community while learning what it means to eat seasonally. CSAs are the best possible way to eat the most nutrient dense organically grown food.
At Easy Bee Farm, loving workers harvest the CSA shares in exchange for produce. Harvest occurs the same morning as pickup – we believe in fresh!
Produce Per Season
As a CSA member, you will learn about what crops are available in Moab during different times of the year. Timing and availability will vary each year based on the weather and agricultural variables.

Can’t make it one week? Consider having a friend pickup your share for you. Please let us know ahead of time if this is the case.
What Produce Will I Receive Weekly?
Vegetables vary throughout each season. See our blog page for a week by week description of share contents.
How Much Food Comes in a Weekly Share?
A full share will feed a couple or small family and is approximately $20-$25 worth of produce each week. Some weeks may be worth much more during peak harvest times while others may not quite reach that mark. For example, there is usually a lull between Spring and Summer crops where you may not receive as much produce, but in August you will most likely receive an excess.
