Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is collaboration between farmers and their community. Individuals or families purchase a "share" in a farm and receive a weekly basket of fresh, seasonal vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flowers once a week throughout the growing season. This relationship provides a direct link between the production and consumption of food. This insures exceptionally fresh food for you and your family and insures that we, the farmers, have a support network in place to share in the risks associated with farming. By becoming a shareholder of Bugtussle Farm you also have an open invitation to see for yourself how and where your food is grown. Best of all, you can directly and positively impact the survival of a small family farm.
Bugtussle Farm's Summer CSA Season will last 20 weeks beginning in early May and lasting through September. The Fall Season usually starts immediately following the Summer Season and typically lasts for 6 to 8 weeks. Winter deliveries are dictated by the weather!
We deliver your shares each Saturday morning to the Richland Park Farmers' Market, in Richland Park just off of Charlotte Pike. Nashville, TN.
We are a well established CSA, serving the Nashville area since 2002. We were one of the original CSA operations in the Nashville area and have proudly kept with our goals of maintaining a small yet very personal CSA.
