Community Supported Agriculture
Thinking about signing up for a CSA?
Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of fruits and vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return they receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week (frequency may depend on the farm and/or program itself) throughout the farming season.
Advantages For YOU:
Eat ultra-fresh, organic, and nutrient dense produce
Get exposed to new vegetables/fruit and new ways of cooking
Visit and develop a relationship with Lifetime Natural Farm and other local farms/farmers who grow your food

Support a local business and boost your local economy
Save a trip to try grocery store (and save money too)
Children are more inlined to eat food from "their" farm, even vegetables they've never been known to eat
Live an overall healthier lifestyle
Our "mix and match", or "market-style" CSA, will give you (the members) the ability to choose/load their own boxes with some degree of personal choice. Our CSA will also include products from other farms as well. It will include seasonal produce from our farm, seasonal produce from Joan Well's farm, seasonal produce from Randal Farms, lovingly raised eggs from Pecan Point, and produce from a couple more operations.
The CSAs will be provided every 2 weeks, every other Wednesday. We will need a purchase order made at least by the Monday previous to the Wednesday before pick-up.
Please order through Joan Wells (334-391-0160) and/or through our website here!
