What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s like a produce subscription service. Members sign up for a share and then get weekly deliveries of fresh, delicious produce at a designated pickup site. This CSA includes about 8 items/week of seasonal, local produce which is chosen by the farm. One share will typically feed a 3-4 person household every week. Click here for FAQ.

The Farm

Our CSA partners with One Straw Farm, the largest organic farm in Maryland. Drew and Joan Norman have lovingly tended One Straw Farm since 1983. They aim to provide their CSA members with the highest quality Food Alliance Certified produce. One Straw is located in White Hall, MD about 40 miles North of Baltimore City.

Why Join?

By joining this CSA you will be: supporting local farmers and the local economy, protecting the environment, improving your health, and expanding your diet. With a pickup site at the Homewood campus, this CSA is an affordable, convenient way for Hopkins affiliates to buy directly from a farm. Buying through a CSA ensures freshness and diversity as produce is harvested at its seasonal peak.
