What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a locally based food distribution system that creates a direct link between farmers and consumers.
Individuals pre-purchase a "share" of the farm's harvest in the spring and receive freshly picked produce as it becomes available throughout the growing season.
By purchasing a "share" of our CSA, you both reserve a weekly box of fresh organic vegetables, and enable RRI to plan for the season, purchase new seed, and invest in our local initiatives. It's an investment in your pantry and our future!
Our growing season runs from mid June to the end of October. Pre-season sign up is available starting January 12th to June 12th. During pre-season sign up all CSA shares may be purchased that are listed under SHARE SIZES AND PRICES.
Target Start Date: June 10th Target End Date: October 21st
After the closing of pre-season sign ups on June 12th only half season and flex shares will be available for purchase with the start date of July 15.

Pay In Installments
Because our mission is to be able to provide our delicious produce to all of our community members, no matter the income, we will be accepting installment payments using SNAP or personal checks for families who cannot pay the membership dues in one payment. To sign up for installment payments or sign up using your SNAP benefits, contact Erin at email@example.com. (SNAP user will be provided an additional discount on shares)
If the CSA prices are still a struggle please look into our work share program with benefits of discounted prices or a full free CSA membership.
