Bellair Farm CSA began in 2011. It runs for at least 22 weeks beginning around the last week of May and through the end of October. Each week you and your family will be able to come right to the farm to pick up your produce, either on Wednesday afternoons (10-3) or Saturday mornings (9-2). You will also have the option to pick up your share in town at the Waldorf School (Monday 4-6), Meade Park Market (Wednesdays 3-7), or the UVA Grove Street Market (3-7).
When to Expect Produce Throughout the Season:
What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Farmers and consumers enter into a mutually beneficial relationship that supports the farm for the benefit of the local community. When you purchase a share ahead of the growing season you will be buying your vegetables for about half the market price. As a shareholder you also have the opportunity to be directly connected to the farm where your food is grown. You will have the opportunity, when you pick up your share, to chat with the farmer and crew, pick some of your vegetables, enjoy the farm, and receive a weekly newsletter with recipes and ideas for your table. The CSA benefits the farmer as well. He or she gets the annual income in the spring when it is most needed to buy seed and equipment for the coming season.
