Stearns Farm CSA is a non-profit corporation funded primarily by the sale of shares in the harvest, with help from volunteers, foundations, and individual donors. Like all CSAs, it is a partnership between the farmer and the consumers in which the farmer and consumer share the risk of agriculture and the bounty of a good harvest. Consumers become shareholders by buying a “share” of the harvest. The farmer receives upfront funds for supplies, has a secure contracted market, and can therefore concentrate on vegetable farming, providing shareholders with abundant, high-quality crops. We reduce the risk of crop failure by planting over 40 vegetables and using all natural, sustainable growing methods that increase soil fertility and keep plants healthy.

Please Carry In, Carry Out
There is no trash or recycling pickup at the farm. This means that all non-compostable trash must be taken away by volunteers, who transport it in their personal cars to their own homes for disposal. The same is true for recyclables. Please help us out by carrying out everything you carry in.
