Westward Orchards Community Supported Agriculture Program

We will be offering our Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA) here at Westward Orchards for the third season. Thank you to all that made the past two seasons a success and to those that are joining us for our upcoming season. Our 20-week program will offer you fresh Westward Orchards grown fruit and vegetables throughout the summer, fall and early winter.

A CSA is a program designed to help farms sell their crops in advance. This program benefits not only the farmer but the shareholder as well. The program allows you the shareholder to form a connection with the farm that is growing your fruits and vegetables. In most circumstances shareholders receive a better value for their money than they initially invested. You are guaranteed the freshest, best tasting and nutrient packed produce available; allowing you to experience the joys of eating fresh, healthy food on a weekly basis.

Our Growing Practices
At Westward Orchards we practice Integrated Pest Management also known as IPM. IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
