CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  Becoming a member of a CSA is one of the best ways for consumers to access and support local sustainable food.  However, being a member in a CSA is much different than shopping for vegetables at a grocer or supermarket.  Members receive a "share" of the harvest from the farm in the coming season and, in return, the farmer is assured a reliable market.  The produce is harvested once a week and contains an assorted variety of high-quality, hand-picked fresh vegetables, the content of which depends upon seasonal variability.  So, no tomatoes in the winter and no beets in July.  The box is picked up within twenty-four hours of harvest (which means its fresher and more nutritious than anything at a store).
CSA is a direct local connection between the community and the farmer. It is a closer partnership between you and the steward of your food and local ecosystem. You will get to see exactly where and how your food is produced and you will get to know personally the people whose hard work went into feeding you. We encourage farm visits and will have events in the future for CSA members to get to know our farmers. CSA members will be updated each week as to what produce is in the boxes, so keep checking our website and


Roots Memphis provides seasonal vegetables that are both sustainable and local, which makes it a rare product in the Memphis region.  The food miles traveled by a Roots Memphis CSA box is no more than the distance from you to the pick-up location.  Further, because the Farm Academy is engaged in farmer training, you are also helping to make local and sustainable food more accessible to everyone in our our region. We believe in a future in which local and sustainable produce is no longer rare, but the norm.
By purchasing a Roots Memphis CSA share, you are contributing to the growth of your local economy by supporting new local farmers, caring for the health of our region and planet by supporting sustainable farming practices, and getting a fresher, healthier product at the same time.
Thank you for believing in us  and supporting the hard work of our farmers.

Don't worry, you're not alone.  We're all trying to eat healthier and more local, and sometimes that means changing what's for dinner around what's available this time of year. From time to time, Roots Memphis will insert veggie guides and suggested recipes for the mysterious things you haven't heard of and don't know how to prepare...and for those times when you've run out of ideas and just aren't sure what to do. In the future, look for recipes and guides online for CSA members as well.
