Your Co-op is partnering with local farmers to bring you a weekly assortment of fresh, seasonal produce that you can pick up right in the store! Signing up is as easy as stopping by our Hospitality Desk before June 1.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, which is a direct farm-to-consumer program that provides you with the freshest local, seasonal vegetables each week. It’s a great way to try and eat more veggies, eat more locally, and eat seasonally since you will simply get whatever is in abundance at harvest time.
What do you get?
A box of farm fresh, mostly organic produce every Wednesday beginning on June 5, 2019. The 6-8 items in the weekly box (which will feed a 2-3 person family) will change as the seasons change, depending upon availability.
Who are the farmers?
Rolling Fork Organic Farm is a certified organic farm in the hills of Central Kentucky near Danville that focuses on sustainability and conservation practices. Casey County Organics, a cooperative of organic farmers near Liberty, KY, will also be contibuting to the share boxes. Smaller farms will be adding to the shares throughout the season so they benefit from the cooperative nature of this CSA, too.
What does it cost?
The whole season – 20 weeks of fresh, organic produce – costs $550 which breaks down to $27.50 per week.
How do I get my produce?
You may sign-up for a full season (June-October) anytime between now and June 1st. Each week a box of fresh, organic produce will be delivered to Good Foods Co-op, 455 Southland Drive, Lexington. Please return your box each week, or bring a bag to take your CSA home. We work hard to minimize food waste, so please be aware that shares not picked up within 24 hours will be donated to folks struggling with food scarcity.

Please complete this form (or pick one up in-store) and turn it in at the Hospitality Desk along with your full share payment. We accept cash, credit/debit card, or check payment.
