Benefits of Membership
“Joining the Applecrest C.S.A. was one of the best decisions my family made this year! Week after week, our overflowing crate of delicious fruits & veggies inspired us to cook more, spend more time together and even saved us money.”
-Lori D., York, ME
There's a host of great reasons to join a C.S.A. Perhaps you're looking to make meaningful food choices by eating locally with the seasons? Or maybe you want to promote biodiversity and wildlife habitat while reducing your carbon footprint? Perchance it's just that you love farmers and want to celebrate local agriculture through your support.
