Welcome to the Most Local, Weekly or Bi-Weekly, Fresh Veggie Box in Town! Join our CSA Community Supported Agriculture Today
The West Sacramento Urban Farm Program is proud to offer a weekly or bi-weekly fresh fruit and veggie box CSA. CSA(Communty Supported Agriculture) is one of the best ways for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from local farmers. When you subscribe to West Sacramento Urban Farm's fresh veggie box CSA, you can be assured that you are receiving the freshest, most local, vine-ripened produce available. The carbon footprint of your box is strikingly lower than store bought produce, as it is grown within 25 miles of our pickup locations at Yolo Brewing Company (West Sac) and Big Stump Brew Co.(Midtown Sac)
Our program is unique because 100% of the produce in your veggie box is grown by beginning farmers. We are a non-profit organization and all the proceeds go directly to the farmers and into our programming to support these new small farm businesses. Did you know that the average age of the American farmer is 58 years old. By joining our veggie box program you are helping beginning farmers gain precious experience growing the best produce possible.
All of our beginning farmers grow using organic standards. Absolutely no chemical fertilizers, or herbicides are used, and all of our farmers use drip irrigation, which uses a fraction of the water used in other methods.
