What is CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a way to encourage and support local food production and sustainable land management practices.

CSA members prepay for their food for the growing season. By making this commitment to the farm in advance, you help the farm's cash flow when things are tight with springtime investments in seeds, fertilizer and tools. Your membership also helps buffer some of the uncertainty of the season, as some crops inevitably perform better than others each year.

CSA can be a great tool to deepen your relationship with your plate, learning to eat with the seasons. If you enjoy cooking and trying new vegetables, it can be an exciting culinary adventure. Members rejoice in the bounties of the season alongside with the farmer.

Is your produce chemical free?

Yes, our produce is free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. We only use supplies that are approved under organic certification.

What do you grow?

We grow more than 50 types of vegetables & herbs. Availability changes over the course of the season. If it's a vegetable that grows in this climate, there is a good chance we grow it! CSA members can expect 4-6 different vegetables each week, from onions to tomatoes, carrots to lettuce, we have you covered!

More Details & Membership Options

Our CSA is $550 (approximately a $600 value). Shares generally include ~6 types of vegetables and a fresh herb of your choosing. We prioritize CSA first when we have a limited supply of a highly in demand product, such as sugar snap peas, lettuce or the season's first tomatoes. On weeks in which the produce options are a little thinner, or simply to mix it up, we feature another item from our partnered local producers. For example, in addition to your produce share, CSA members may be instructed to pick out a jam or bread of their choosing from the shop. 

We are also offering an Egg Share CSA add-on if members are interested. Cost is $132 ($6/week). This does not transmit a cost savings over purchasing eggs in our shop, but it does guarantee that we will have a dozen reserved for you each week. :)

When and where do members pick up?

Members must be able to commit to picking up Wednesdays between 4 and 6 PM, June-October. We understand that occasionally, something comes up, and we have refrigeration space for a couple shares if that happens, but your share will be at its freshest if you can pick up during the designated window. 

Pickup location is in our barn, next to our Farm Shop. 

What about vacations?

We understand that summer is a busy time. Each member is allowed one planned skip if they choose. They must notify us at least 2 days in advance of pickup. Their skipped share can be redeemed post-season, the week of November 8th. 

So how do I sign up?

If you are interested in joining, please see link here to fill out our membership form. Checks can be made out to Southgate Farm LLC and mailed to the farm:

6521 Mount Pleasant St NW

North Canton, OH 44720

We also accept Venmo @SouthgateFarmLLC, Paypal @SouthgateFarm, and can take credit card payment over the phone (440.832.0865) or by emailed Paypal invoice.

Subsidized Shares

While we cannot offer financial assistance, we are interested in taking on one or two work-share members. This means that you would join our team and commit to 3-4 regular hours of volunteering each week instead of paying for your share. If you are interested in learning more about that process and applying, please reach out.
