Why should I become a CSA member?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system that invites consumers to connect directly with a local organic farm to share in the growing, eating, and celebrating of farm-fresh produce. When you sign up for a CSA membership, you pay in advance for a share of the farm's upcoming harvest at an advantageous price.

When you sign up for our CSA membership you:
 • Get priority access to a steady and varied supply of fresh, nutritious and organic produce
 • Enjoy full flexibility on the contents of your weekly basket
 • Save on your grocery bill with our membership specials
 • Provide a source of financial stability for our farm
 • Contribute to the development of a resilient system of agriculture*

*Les jardins Tierra Viva officially joined the Family Farmers Network (FFN) in 2024. The FFN is an organization that advocates for agriculture at a human and collective scale, providing farmers with coaching and training services to help them be more resilient stewards of the land. With the purchase of one of our CSA membership, a contribution is sent to the FFN.

Is your produce certified organic?
All vegetables and fruits grown on our farm are certified organic by Ecocert. However, our fresh farm chicken eggs are not certified organic.

While we grow a wide variety of produce on our farm, we don't grow some seasonal staples like sweet corn, strawberries, apples and mushrooms. We source these items directly from local farmers and prioritize organic producers. You can always find the producer's name and the item's organic certification status clearly indicated in the price label for each item, both on our online market and our kiosks.

What produce is available right now?
You can always check out our online farmer's market to find out what is currently available. To see a full list of produce and their expected availability please check out our Produce calendar.
