One Woman Farm CSA and How it Works.
CSA simply stands for Community Supported Agriculture. This is how it works. A One Woman Farm "share-holder" pays in full for a membership or “share” in the farm before the harvest distributions begin in June 2013. For 23 consecutive weeks, weather permitting, each member receives a share of the farm’s weekly harvest. In this form of direct, mutually beneficial farmer-to-consumer relationship, both the farmer and One Woman Farm members share in the bounty, as well as the risks, associated with farming.
The benefits of OWF CSA membership are plentiful and various. In return for your commitment to and interest in the farm, One Woman Farm is committed to providing you and your family with your local source of high quality organically grown fresh vegetables at a good value. With your subscription, you will be joining the One Woman Farm community of like-minded "share-holders" actively sharing and participating in the support of local organically grown produce.
One Woman Farm CSA members are invited to attend farm tours in addition to both on-farm and off-farm seasonal dinners held at local partnering restaurants in Pittsburgh that showcase OWF produce.

Interested in a work share?
Commit to 35 hours of harvesting/washing/weeding or 50 hours of helping at the East Liberty farmers market and take $100.00 off of the entire subscription cost. This is an excellent opportunity to get out, do some good work, and become more connected with the farm and seasonal rhythms that feed you.
