Edible Acres is an organic market farm and an adventure in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a growing movement encouraging the resurgence of local farming and harvesting. Our CSA consists of individuals and families who pledge to support our farm and share the risks and benefits of food production. In return they are awarded with a weekly box of farm fresh produce. Our vision, and promise to our community is to respect the land, farm organically and enhance our surrounding ecosystem. As young farmers our mission is to educate our community about the importance of local food and organic production.
