CSA—Participating Farmers and Seafood Vendor
Sign up with the farmer/vendor of your choice, then pick up your deliveries each week at RTI.
There are two ways to join the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program hosted by RTI:
- Contact the participating farmer/vendor by phone or e-mail, and let them know you're interested in signing up to purchase their products. Please note that the farmers/vendor will begin taking applications well before the first in-person sign-up day early in each calendar year. You can also click on the business names below for a printable sign-up form (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader). If you plan to take delivery at RTI, please let them know that, too; many have multiple CSAs and make deliveries in other locations. You can check out the respective websites to learn more and to help you make a decision.
- Come to our CSA sign-up day. You'll get to meet the farmers/vendor in person and talk with them about their products, growing or fishing practices, share prices, or anything else you would like to know before signing up with them.
Sign ups begin in February. It is not unusual for all shares to be sold, so sign up early to be sure to get a share. Also, signing up early helps farmers with their planning.
See RTI Community Supported Agriculture Program 2013 for a chart to help you select the right farmer or vendor for you.
