The Millburn-Short Hills CSA, now in its sixth year, will once again offer residents the opportunity to purchase local, seasonal produce directly from a farmer.  

CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.

The deadline for a membership is April 26. 

There will be opportunities throughout the season for members to purchase fresh baked goods, organic chicken and olive oil. 

Members of the Millburn-Short Hills CSA will once again be supporting Starbrite Farms in Andover, Breezy Hill Orchard in Staatsburg, N.Y. and Knoll Krest Farm, Clinton Corners, N.Y.  

Millburn-Short Hills CSA members can purchase vegetable and fruit shares and add on egg and pasta shares - each with a different price.
