CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, but we also like to think of it as Community Building Agriculture.
- We provide healthy, local vegetables and fruit to 50 shareholders and local soup kitchens. Our CSA farm will help you try some new vegetables, meet some new people and learn something new about nurturing food plants. Find out more about our CSA ->
- Education is a central component and an essential element in the vision of the Friends of Boulder Knoll, the farm’s sponsoring organization. Our goal is to emphasize essential links between people, plants, and the earth, to develop interdisciplinary learning, and to promote environmental responsibility.
- We believe that exposing the community, especially its youth, to the wonders, importance and value of agriculture, conservation, and outdoor recreation is critical to fostering future stewards of the environment.
- We run the farm in a sustainable manner. We use solar electricity and do most of the bed preparation, planting, cultivating and some mowing with hand tools. We consider and incorporate permaculture practices. The farm is not certified organic, but we adhere to organic growing standards and have signed then CTNOFA Farmer’s Pledge, a commitment to farming, marketing and farm management in accordance with sound ecological and economic principles.
