What is a CSA?
The acronym CSA traditionally stands for Community SupportedAgriculture. For us, it means Community Supported Apiculture. No matter what, a CSA is a socio-economic method of reaching the community directly to distribute locally produced farm products. In our case, we offer honey as well as candles directly from our apiary.
In our Community Supported Apiculture, customers buy in just like with a farm’s CSA. Payment to the apiary is made ahead of harvest ensuring both the customer’s receipt of a portion of the honey crop as well as the beekeepers funding for the year’s supplies. The act links the customer and beekeeper by financial investment, allowing the two to know each other on a more personal level as well as a responsible one. This is a terrific way to not only acquire real value, but also pitch in and help with local, sustainable beekeeping.
Our honey CSA is a bit different. Since honey is harvested en masse and stores indefinitely, the crop is not distributed on a weekly basis or expected to be consumed within a week. The price on the share is set in a way that allows for you to ultimately pay less on our products by virtue of paying up front and in full. You receive a share of honey and candles at pick-up day that are meant to last for a long time. A bulk acquisition of honey also secures you from any later price hikes that may occur due to the impact of a short crop, supply increases, etc. In addition, at the pick-up we all get to meet and come face to face! For us this is important. We want to know who you are. We want to have your feedback and input! Beyond being connected to us, our CSA, like all CSAs, is about acting with the community to mitigate and bond over the risks of the industry. A purchase of a honey CSA is as much about a show of support and faith, as it is about goods or nutrition. At a time where apicultural stability and bee pasture are at threat, a purchase of our honey CSA is a loud voice affirming our honeybee’s importance to the region’s agricultural community and our natural environment.

- 3 – 2lb jars of our Massachusetts Wildflower honey
