Produce grown at EAT South's model farms is sold throughout the city to improve access to fresh, healthy food and provide income for EAT South. While we are a non-profit, our farms seek to be self-sustaining and the sale of our produce helps us achieve that goal. We use only sustainable techniques for producing our food.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program
Members of our CSA buy a subscription to the farm early in the year, which helps to pay for the seeds and farm equipment needed to get the season rolling. Additional revenue from the CSA program directly supports our farms and staff, helping us to sustain our vision of urban agriculture and nutrition education.
The CSA program is offered twice each year, once during the spring growing season and again during the fall growing season. CSA members visit the Hampstead Farms site or the Downtown Farm to receive a weekly harvest of in-season sustainably grown vegetables, fruits, and herbs freshly harvested from both our farms. Participants receive a family-sized variety of produce valued at $25 as well as a newsletter complete with healthy recipes and updates about farm life and events. A limited number of work/trade positions are available each season.
Spring/Summer CSA season: 17 weeks, from April 4th - July 25th.
Fall CSA season: 12 weeks, from September 12th - November 21st.
Produce grown at Hampstead Farms and the Downtown Farm for the CSA program includes:
Cut Flowers, Herbs, Peppers, Eggplant, Tomatoes, Melons, Green Beans, Sugar Peas, Arugula, Sweet Potatoes, Fennel, Collard Greens, Turnips, Shelling Peas, Onions, Squash, Cucumbers, Beets, Kale, Broccoli, Broccoli Raab, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Choi, Pumpkins, Carrots, Radishes, Chilies, Chard, Spinach, Tomatoes, Cabbage
