How it Works
“CSA” stands for “Community-Supported Agriculture”. It’s a system of connecting farmers to buyers that people in the small farming community have been using for decades. In this system, farmers sell directly to consumers, who pick up their produce once per week from a pick-up point.
Using the Libertine CSA, you will receive a bag of produce and food each week, containing only the freshest from local producers and house-made goods from The Libertine Kitchen!
First, you pick the plan you would like and subscribe. We have lots of options available, to make sure that your plan fits you!
Then, once a week, you come to The Libertine to pick up your CSA share. We do the rest – we talk to the farmers, we gather the produce together, and we sort it into your bag. Every Wednesday, you stop into the restaurant and pick up your produce!
What’s in the bag?
Every week, we will make sure to offer a balanced basket. It won’t be all carrots – we will have the best local farmers’ produce at our fingertips and will lovingly craft your bag each week.
Every time, we will make sure that your bag includes a variety of food. With an eye towards balance, we will make sure to include vegetables that combine well together as you cook throughout the week. But it won’t be just vegetables! We are also offering freshly baked bread, cheese, eggs (for non-vegan options) and other value-added products as they become available. Chef Matt Bessler and Proprietor Audra Luedde will include recipes and even some prepared items each week, such as Fresh Bread, Preserves & Pickles! At the Libertine, we love food – and we love to help others discover the talented farmers and chefs in the community.
The Libertine CSA will consist of 3 “Seasons” in 9 week sessions. Shares are limited, so be sure to sign up soon! The one time sign-up fee is $20 which includes a branded Libertine CSA Tote Bag for you to carry your groceries home. Just return your bag the following week and we’ll send you home with a new one. Every member will also receive a 10% discount when dining at The Libertine!
