Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program that creates a direct relationship between our farm and you, the Shareholder. Through this program you receive a portion of our farm's harvest on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, access to our CSA member educational programming and exclusive class discounts.
What is CSA?
Our CSA Program...
Provides farm-fresh produce using natural, regenerative growing practices that promotes high mineral content in our produce. No chemical fertilizer. No herbicides. Ever. We only use OMRI-certified products.
Most produce is harvested the same day as delivery to ensure maximum nutritional content and flavor.
Includes unique seasonal varieties, and recipes to make the most out of your CSA experience.
Directly supports educating new farmers in San Diego.
Connects members to the land and to each other through seasonal tours, special events, and exclusive discounts on classes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you certified organic?
The farm is not certified organic, but everything is grown using natural, biological farming practices without use of conventional pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge or irradiated products. We build soil fertility by making and using high-quality compost, and use only soil amendments allowed on certified organic farms. All our seed is non-GMO. You are welcome to visit and observe our farming practices. They are an integral part of our farm school curriculum.
Q: How do I help the environment as a CSA member?
Fossil fuel consumption is reduced because we don't use heavy machinery and there is minimal transportation of your produce. Here at Wild Willow Farms, we use people and soil life to power and grow our food, and because it is grown locally, transportation fuel consumption is at a minimum. Our regenerative sustainable farming philosophy includes using healthy soil practices that saves water, eliminates the need for artificial fertilizer that pollutes waterways, reduces atmospheric carbon dioxide, and we NEVER use synthetic chemicals!
Q: What are the responsibilities of a CSA subscriber?
Pick up your CSA box within the time frame stated. Making the CSA boxes available during the designated pickup time is the only thing the host is responsible for.
Swap out produce into your own reusable bag, and leave the empty boxes there.
Be respectful of our pick-up hosts' property and time.
Follow additional rules posted at your pick-up location regarding signing in, parking, stacking of empty boxes, etc.
The CSA boxes that are not retrieved within the pick-up times are forfeited by the Shareholder and will be donated or sold. There are no "makeup’s" for missed CSA boxes. If you cannot pick-up your CSA box, you may arrange for someone else to pick it up for you. You are responsible for explaining the pick-up location and procedures to your substitute.
We take the safety of your food seriously. We wash all produce before packaging, but for your added protection, please wash all produce before eating.
