Fresh from Joseph Fields Farm!
Joseph Fields Farm is a 50-acre, certified organic fruit and vegetable farm located on the fertile land of John’s Island in Charleston, South Carolina. The land is stewarded by Joseph Fields, a third-generation Gullah-Geechee farmer whose heart is as large as his harvest. In tending his land, Joseph and his family live by the basic principles of work hard, deep love, and care for their land and neighbors.
What is a CSA?
CSA = Community Supported Agriculture
Community-supported agriculture (CSA model) is a system that connects the producer and consumers within the
food system more closely by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms.
It is an alternative socio-economic model of agriculture and food distribution that allows the producer and consumer to share the risks of farming.
