Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program where you receive a box of produce every week from a local farm. Benefits include: 

  • Convenient - pick up your produce right on campus
  • Taste- high quality food picked just for you!
  • Health-eat more vegetables grown without chemicals
  • Affordable- less expensive than the store
  • Local-support a local farmer and avoid transportation pollution 
 and many more

About Warner Farm 

warner

Campus and fall only CSAs aren’t that common- we are excited to create this option for Brandeis with a wonderful farm partner.  

Warner Farm is located in Central Mass. It is a family farm operating sustainably for 9 generations- since 1720! They use largely organic methods to supply the CSA and Farmers Markets. They practice reduced-tillage, zone-tillage, Integrated Pest Management, and some Certified Organic. Which helps to offset the environmentally detrimental effects of industrial food production, and help keep carbon in the soil and all the best nutrients and flavor in food. They are moving to complete Organic Certification but the process takes a bit of time. Feel free to Contact Warner Farm with any questions or sign up today. 

Costs
The CSA starts at $15 a week, read CSA members Bret Matthew's article in the Brandeis Hoot. He found out that the CSA was economical too:

"It turned out that the total price of the equivalent store produce came to nearly $40. That’s $15 more than what my roommate and I pay, and our food is delivered to us just after being picked."
