CSA is a subscription for fresh, local, seasonal produce that you regularly pick-up from Zenger Farm. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA is an adventure! Try the latest vegetable varieties that your farmers are excited about. Bring the kids to a cooking workshop. Experience seasonal eating when flavor is at its peak. Swap recipes with your neighbors at pickup. It’s fun! As a member of the Zenger Farm CSA, you can form a real connection with your farmers and the land where your food is grown.

A weekly share includes 6-12 different produce items. The Zenger Farm CSA is primarily vegetables with very limited amounts of herbs, fruits, and edible flowers included. The size and contents of your share will change over the season and will be smaller during June. People’s eating habits are very different, but a Full Share is designed to provide enough vegetables for two veggie-loving adults or a family of four omnivores who eat most of their meals at home. Almost all your produce will come from Zenger Farm but we may source up to 10% of the produce from other organic farms in the Portland area (produce that other farms excel at growing because of space or equipment).
