We expect to open CSA Shares starting early-mid January 2023-- There's nothing like bringing home fresh certified organic and sustainably grown vegetables, herbs, and berries! Even better, knowing exactly where your food comes from, who grew it, and how it was grown. Not only does being a CSA shareholder have a positive impact on you and your family, but you directly support our farm and local food economy. Crown Point has been offering USDA certified organic csa shares since 1994. We rely on the support from our community to operate in a sustainable and ecological manner. 

Crown Point demonstrates its mission through fresh produce donation to The Akron/Canton Regional Food Bank and other hunger relief centers and food pantries in our area. In 2022, we donated over 5,000 pounds of organic produce, approximately 30% of the harvest! Crown Point also donated certified organic vegetable plants last spring to local community gardens in effort to reduce food insecurity in our community.

Local farm fresh eggs will be available as a specialty add-on! 

Why should you join a CSA program like ours?

  • You want to eat healthy
  • You want to try new varieties of vegetables and herbs
  • You want to eat fresh, high-quality, superior tasting vegetables
  • You want to support a local business that operates in a sustainable and ecological manner
  • You want to know your farmer on a first-name basis and know where your food comes from 
  • You care about the environment and how your food is grown

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, becoming a CSA Shareholder may be for you!

How does the CSA Program work?

The CSA is a 20-week enrollment that runs from the beginning of June through mid-October. There are multiple share types to choose from, including a Full Share and Half Share with weekly and bi-weekly pick-up.

Each week, our farmers harvest the freshest produce and setup "market style" in the lower area of the Century Barn. "Market style" means shareholders are able to enter the lower barn and select from available produce. Each week shareholders will receive an E-Newsletter describing the contents of the CSA share, 1-2 recipes, happenings on the farm, volunteer opportunities and upcoming events.

Shareholders are encouraged to bring a reusable tote bag each week to pick-up their CSA share.
