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 vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

Tens of thousands of families have joined CSAs, and in some areas of the country there is more demand than there are CSA farms to fill it.
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. LIfetime Natural Farm will lays out baskets of the week's vegetables.
More Choices than Ever!
LIfetime Natural Farms aren't confined to just produce. We will include the option for shareholders to buy shares of eggs, homemade bread, meat, cheeses, fruit, flowers or other farm products along with their veggies.
Sometimes will offer other farmers products with ours for you to enjoy, to offer the widest variety to their members. Our partnership with another farm could deliver chickens to our CSA drop off point, or even farm-fresh chickens when they come to get their CSA baskets. Our CSA will eventually sell meat, flowers, eggs, and preserved farm products.
We are excited to bring this to you...
