Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

2014 CSA Shares Available

CSA BoxSupport local farmers and enjoy health benefits from eating fresh, seasonal produce.

Madison College is proud to partner with Troy Community Farm to deliver CSA boxes to the Truax campus on Fridays from June 6 to October 24.

New "Market Share" options are also available for those who would like to pick up produce at the Dane County Farmers Market. For example, Harmony Valley Farm now offers a CSA Market Share with $40 and $100 punch cards redeemable at the Saturday Farmer's Market. This qualifies for wellness reimbursement through GHC and WPS.

Our CSA delivery partner, Troy Community Farm, is part of Community GroundWorks, a non-profit that seeks to connect individuals with urban agricultural and natural lands within a diverse learning community. They have been growing certified organic food on Madisonʼs North side since 2001. The farm is located at Troy Gardens, a unique 26-acre development that includes restored prairie, woodlands, trails, and community gardens, as well as a 5-acre farm. Members are welcome to visit and walk through Troy Gardens at any time. A self-guided tour brochure is available at the kiosk at the front of the land.
