What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture programs or CSAs allow farmers to sell directly to consumers. This has benefits for the farmer and the consumer. Without a middle man, the farmer takes home a better price for his or her produce, while the consumer has the opportunity to meet the farmer and know how the farmer grows the food. CSAs also have the benefit of fresh, seasonal foods, and they support strong, local economies by keeping money circulating within the community. CSAs are structured in many different ways. One of the most common ways is to prepay for produce and then receive a weekly box of fresh foods from the farm.
Honolulu Farms CSA
Our CSA is structured in a couple of different ways. We have a few small, local businesses that receive weekly boxes. Most individuals volunteer time helping on the farm in exchange for produce they can take home. In the future we would like to be able to offer a weekly box to individuals and families for a prepaid period.
Below is a small selection of the produce that has been grown or is currently being grown on the farm. All produce is subject to availability.
