What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture - for the win!
Community Shared Agriculture, or CSA, is a farming model built on fairness and transparency for both the farmer and community members. It brings producers and consumers within the food system closer by allowing residents to invest in the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms. In return for investing to a harvest, customers receive either a weekly or bi-weekly box of produce or other farm goods. This includes in-season fruits, vegetables, and can expand to flowers, dried goods, eggs, milk, meat, etc.
Simply put - customers commit to buying more produce at one time (a box of produce vs buying a single vegetable) which helps farmers reinvest in their future harvests.
We love this model because it creates a more sustainable financial model for our small, local farmers while putting the freshest produce in the hands of our neighbors!
Luckily for all of us, we have two AMAZING options for CSA produce boxes that deliver directly to E14th Eatery + Kitchen. Read more about them to see if they would be a good fit for you and your fam!

Mandela Produce Distribution – a project of the non-profit Mandela Partners – supports local, limited-resource farmers, using sustainable practices by establishing an alternative distribution network that passes on wholesale prices to retailers, institutions, restaurants and other mission-aligned community based organizations.
