CSA at Spoutwood Farm

Fresh Local Produce

The Spoutwood Farm Center CSA allows members the chances to purchase freshly harvested, naturally-grown vegetables directly from our PA Certified Naturally Grown Farm. This not only provides your family with the benefits of eating seasonal produce free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, it also allows you to know how your food is grown, and the chance to create friendships with the people who grow it.

Do you know a business or individual who would be willing to sponsor a CSA membership for a food insecure family?

Each season we supply approximately 100 families with local, naturally grown produce. All members receive weekly bags of vegetables for 24 weeks between May and November.Unfortunately   many families in our community are unable to afford fresh fruits and vegetables.

Can you or someone you know help them?

By sponsoring those in need, you’ll be improving the health and nutrition of our community and fostering healthy eating habits in the next generation.   Please forward this email to anyone you know that might be able to sponsor a medium or large share, or send us suggestions with contact information for someone you think might be able to help and we will reach out to them directly. Thank you for your consideration!
