We have a LIMITED number of Late Summer and Winter CSA produce shares available!
Crown Point Ecology Center’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is now open! 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 community. Crown Point has been certified organic 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 agencies in Summit County. In 2020, we donated over 5,500 pounds of organic produce, approximately 28% of our harvest! Crown Point also donates certified organic vegetable plants every spring to local community gardens such as Akron Community Garden and Let’s Grow Akron in efforts to reduce food insecurity in our community.
The early weeks of the CSA will include 5-7 vegetables and herbs each week. As the season progresses, the shares grow to 8-12 vegetables and herbs each week. We also partner with local organic farms to provide additional berries and unique produce or other food items to our shareholders. A U-Pick tomato patch allows members to add to their shares.
**Please check back for additional shares for eggs, cheese, meat, etc.**
CSA Shareholders assume the risks of each growing season such as drought, too much rain, unanticipated insect pressure, etc. However, we carefully plan a diverse portfolio of crop varieties to ensure a plentiful harvest, even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. We're in this together!
