Colchester Farm CSA (CFCSA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization governed by a 11-member board of directors.
Colchester Farm Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a nonprofit, small-scale farm that grows fresh local produce for shareholders and community members, and offers apprenticeships and education programs. The CSA promotes an alternative model of farming that strengthens the relationship between farmers, community members, food, and the land.
CFCSA will lead and inspire a broad movement of people who eat and live in close relationship with their communities and the land. CFCSA will be economically and environmentally self-sustaining and will be recognized as an alternative model of sustainable agriculture by the people of the Eastern Shore.
The work of CFCSA is driven by a core set of values:
Land Stewardship - Farming has been a defining characteristic of the Eastern Shore heritage for hundreds of years. We must preserve farmland and farming if we are to pass on that heritage intact into the future.
Community - People thrive in communities which bond them together and provide them support. We will be active participants in a vibrant Eastern Shore community, drawing our support from our neighbors and returning that support through all our activities.
Support for Our Workers - The mission of CFCSA is achieved only through the efforts of its employees and volunteers. All work on behalf of the CSA will be highly valued and those who work for pay will have a sustainable livelihood.
Accessibility - We will work to make our food and education programs available to all members of our community, regardless of income.
