Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Our CSA program began in 2013, and has grown from 10 members to an expected 40 neighbours in 2017. Our CSA in neighbourhood-based, only accepting in members who live, work, or play in Franklinton. Our summer program provides weekly shares valued at about $25 worth of food at a variety of price points delivered right to our neighbours’ doors. We offer full-price shares for those able to pay at $20 weekly, subsidized shares for $10 weekly, and shares accepting EBT through VeggieSNAPS for $10 weekly. The summer CSA program lasts for 21 weeks, starting in June and ending in October, and includes a variety of produce, from tomatoes to salad mix to raspberries. Through our CSA program, we are able to share our food with our neighbours and provide wthem with reliable, healthy, and fresh prduce every week, as well as engage in conversations about unfamiliar produce, share recipes, and keep people udpated about happenings on the farm.
In 2016, we were able to expand our winter production to begin our first winter CSA program. Still in the piloting stages, this program provides 10 members with weekly shares for $10 (or $5 with EBT or subsidy) from December through the first week of April. Through this program, we hope to be able to provide CSA shares to our neighbours year-round. This program offers fresh vegetables through the winter, like greens, carrots, turnips, salad mix, and more. We look forward to taking this program out of pilot stages in the Winter of 2017.

The Worthington Farmers Market is one of the largest in Central Ohio, featuring more than 70 farmers offering an array of locally-grown fruits, vegetables, flowers, plants, honey and herbs. Every Saturday, Ohio farmers bring their fresh-picked produce to market, where customers are able to purchase directly from the local farms selling the highest-quality products from their fields.
Attending farmers markets, although outside of Franklinton, allows us to spread the word about what we do, our wonderful neighbourbood, and ways for people ot get involved. In addition, these markets help us to support our operations and provide financial sustainablity to our efforts on and off the farm. It also gives us the opportunity to share our food year-round, cut down on waste, and contribute to the Greater Columbus food system.
