Growing for the Future
We grow to rediscover ways of providing the freshest, most nutrient dense, flavorful food that we can. The health of the soil determines the sustainability of the food system and the quality of the crop. What's in your food?

Green Junction Farmstead Mission
Taking part in the good food movement by producing nutrient dense, high quality fruits and vegetables for our local food system through farmer’s markets, CSA, restaurants, and non-profit organizations while cultivating an environment free of harmful human-made insecticides, herbicides, and fertilizers in a human-powered, eco-friendly way. Bringing community together through food in celebration of love, life, and happiness since 2015.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
"A CSA addresses the concern that the average distance that food travels from farm to consumer in the United States is approximately 1,300 miles. Another advantage of obtaining food locally is that the money stays within the local community.
CSAs began to develop on the East Coast of the United States in the mid-1980s. Today, it is estimated that between 30,000 and 50,000 U.S. consumers belong to a CSA. Examples of CSAs range from smaller operations with three to twenty members to larger CSAs with hundreds of members or subscribers.
The Principle Behind a CSA
A CSA involves consumers who support a farmer financially by paying for a share of the farm's production prior to each growing season. The arrangement allows farmers to buy the seeds, transplants, and other inputs they need for the growing season, and pay their farm labor without waiting until harvest to generate revenue.
By paying for food prior to planting, CSA members essentially assume the risk of crop failure or pest or disease problems and understand that a refund will not be issued in the event that no crops are harvested. If a crop is lost or is of poor quality, the farmer is able to continue to operate. These anticipated problems can be managed with proper planning and risk management strategies. A benefit for farmers who become involved in a CSA is that they can develop a long-term relationship with their members, one that may encourage members to support farmers by renewing their memberships each year." - Penn State Extension
