2013 Local Bi-weekly CSA Share Agreement
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) connects people to their local food source. By
joining R’Eisen Shine Farm’s CSA, you are entering into a partnership with the farm in
which you share in the risk and bounty of each season. Your membership helps us pay
for the early season costs of farming: seeds, labor, materials etc.
At R’Eisen Shine Farm Inc we take the idea of community supported agriculture
beyond the vegetable growing season. Our year-round model harkens to a time when
families received most of their food from local growers. In that vein, we offer seasonal
produce and meat year round (primarily poultry and rabbit). As we expand, there will be
opportunities to buy into dairy, sugars (honey/maple syrup), and a greater variety of
We also differ from traditional models of CSA farms in that we do not specify which of
any of our products constitute a weekly share. Our members can take what they need
or prefer. Each week, you will receive a survey with our available products. We will pack
your share according to your survey.
Our growing methods focus on sustainability and the ethical care of people, plants
and animals. We believe that the animals we raise for meat should have respect and
lives that mimic what nature has built them to do. We reduce our dependency on
fossil fuels by minimizing the amount of tractors or other heavy equipment involved in
our production. We are always open for questions and conversations regarding our
methods- so don’t be afraid to ask!

Notice of Payment Schedule vs. Share Quantity:
Please understand that we break-up the cost of your share only for your convenience. It does
not reflect the amount of product you will receive each week. Due to the nature of agriculture,
you will sometimes receive much more than the weekly or monthly payment, and sometimes less.Over the course of the year, the value will even out.
