Porter Farms visited campus Friday, April 6 its present its program for worksite delivery program to Canisius. Porter Farms runs a Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA). A CSA is a group of members who purchase “shares” that entitle them to a season’s worth of produce from Porter Farms. The farm provides a wide variety of fresh, organic vegetables in a socially and environmentally responsible fashion.
As a shareholder, you receive a bag of 10-12 pounds of fresh, organic vegetables each week of our harvest season. Usually the first harvest is in late June and runs for 22 weeks (to the week before Thanksgiving). More than 40 varieties of organic vegetables are grown. Click here to see a list of produce and approximately what month that produce would be arriving in the shares.
Membership forms need to be completed and returned with payment to Porter Farms no later than May 6. If you enroll and pay by April 15 there is a $20 discount.
If a full share would be too much, those interested may split shares with a co-worker, family member, or neighbor.
If you wish to participate but need to find a person to split a share, please contact Dawn Rotterman at email@example.com or Ext. 3151 and she will try to pair you with another person who wants to split a share.
