The Portland Area CSA Coalition (PACSAC) connects consumers and farmers through Community Supported Agriculture. We help people find the right farm for their family, and we help farmers create sustainable, thriving businesses. We believe a vibrant, environmentally sound local food system is created by building relationships between farmers and households through healthy, accessible, local food.

  • January on the Farm

    Farmers Lyn and Juvencio of La Finquita Del Buho grow delicious food and throw fabulously fun events (think Alpen Horns and ponies!) for their CSA community on their farm in Helvetia.

  • A New Year’s Wish

  • Healthier eating?
  • Eating more vegetables?
  • Cooking more at home?
  • Exploring new foods and recipes?

Join a CSA, and you can check off those resolutions right now. Check, done. Ok, you still have a whole season of cooking and eating to do, but as a CSA member, you’ll:

  • Pick up a variety of vegetables (and sometimes fruit) each week.
  • Discover new foods & favorites (celeriac, anyone).
  • Eat your vegetables each week (because next week you’ll have more).
  • Cook more at home (your veggies will be there waiting for you).
  • Learn new recipes & become a more flexible cook (your farmer will help with recipes and cooking suggestions).

It may be January, but you can join a farm now. You’ll guarantee your spot (wait too long, and you might end up on a waitlist), and your farmer will appreciate your early contribution. Find a farmer on our list or a CSA pick-up location near you. Questions or comments? Email caylor @ Happy New Year!
