What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The Community Supported Agriculture Program at Grace Brothers unites regional farmers with local consumers on a weekly basis.
We work directly with several family-farms and orchards to provide our program members with a variety of just-picked, highly nutritious fruits and vegetables representative of what is available during the growing season in Northern Ohio. Beyond providing our members with great produce, we are also supporting the livelihood of those who work so hard to grow it. Both local and regional communities benefit from this relationship.
Description of Shares:
There are three different share sizes offered for the 2018 CSA Program.
1) Family Share: This share includes 8-10 items per week and a dozen cage-free eggs. This share is perfect for larger families, or for individuals or friends who enjoy sharing. Items are provided in amounts sufficient for 4-6 servings per item.
2) Traditional Share: This share includes 5-7 items per week and a half dozen cage-free eggs. This share size is ideal for couples and small families. Items are provided in smaller amounts, sufficient for 2-4 servings per item.
3) Garden Basket: This share is ideal for a single person or a family looking to add more fresh produce in to their daily meal plans. The contents of the Garden Basket will be enough produce to provide two people with 1-2 servings per item. Eggs are not included in this share, but are available for purchase in-store.
You may choose to add the following options to your share.
Meat Add-On: Add locally-sourced, all natural frozen pork, chicken, turkey and beef products to your share. All of our meat offerings are hormone-free, non-GMO; and the chicken, turkey and beef are pasture-raised. Some items you may receive include the following frozen products: whole chicken, chicken sausage, chicken patties, ground chicken, turkey sausage, pork sausages, beef patties, ground beef, and beef stew meat.
