Rockbridge Farmers Alliance

We are an agricultural alliance of family farms in central Virginia working together in a spirit of cooperation. We provide a diverse selection of fresh healthy food to our community directly from our farms. While not Certified Organic our produce is grown sustainably, without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizer, pesticides, herbicides, or hormones, and never any GMOs!

We also collaborate with other regional farms who share our growing practice philosophy to provide a wide variety of farm products for your enjoyment, convenience, and health.

FARMER-OWNED

 

YOUR SOURCE FOR LOCALLY GROWN FOOD, DIRECT FROM THE FARMER

ROCKBRIDGE

FARMERS     ALLIANCE

CSA

 

 What is CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a method of purchasing farm goods directly from local farms that benefits both the farmer and the consumer. CSA members commit to purchase their shares at the beginning of the season and then receive a weekly delivery of farm products during the season. In this age of industrial global agribusiness, your local family farms appreciate your support.

 

Why is Rockbridge Farmers Alliance different? We are a group of farmers joining together to bring more local products to our CSA customers. Together we can offer more diversity and you can source more of your food directly from local producers. While a CSA customer typically shares the risks and rewards with the farmer, multiple farmers minimize your risk while maximizing rewards.

 

How does it work? CSA members pay a subscription fee to join. Then they choose whatever number and type of shares they wish to purchase from the list of available shares. Members can sign up by mail, over the phone, or by email. Members then pay a deposit followed by monthly payments, or pay in full, with the balance paid by September 30. After that, just come to the delivery location once a week and pick up your fresh farm products!

We offer a 30-week season, from Thursday May 1 to Thursday November 20.

 

SUBSCRIPTION FEES

$30 for the full season. This fee helps us cover the costs of providing the CSA, including advertising, management, and administrative costs.
