Given this unprecedented time of uncertainty and need, we have decided to cancel our 2020 Summer and Fall CSA. We have redirected our energies this year to provide produce to vulnerable populations through Root Causes, a student-led Duke Med organization working to create a stronger local food system.
What's a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farming model that builds a partnership between farmers and the people they feed. As a Duke Campus Farm CSA member, you become a stakeholder in the farm, committing to share in the harvest - both in its unpredictability and seasonality. In return, you receive a weekly share of high-quality, organic produce harvested hours, not weeks, before delivery.
As Duke Campus Farmers, we are committed to growing organically, the best possible fresh produce within its season. While we pride ourselves as organic farmers, our primary goal is that of educators. DCF embodies its mission to catalyze positive change in the food system through teaching and collaborating with classes across the academic spectrum, and exposing thousands of students and community members to the joys and hard work of growing real food.
Our one-acre farm was created from a student-led vision now a decade ago. It is central to our core mission that the Duke Campus Farm remains a student-run operation. Your investment in our CSA program provides us with operating capital to run hands-on sustainable agriculture education to Duke students of all majors and classifications. Your buy-in helps us grow!
Farmers and members both have the opportunity to get to know, understand, and trust the person on the other end of the food chain. Our farm is located on the outskirts of Duke Forest (across the street from the Carolina Friends School), and we invite you to come visit us, work with us, or just watch your food grow during our community workdays.
