Celebrate Community Supported Agriculture with Haffey Family Farm

Haffey Family Farm, located in the Pittsburgh, PA area, is excited to join other CSA farmers across the country to celebrate CSA Week, a national event taking place from February 20th through February 26th to promote CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). CSA is a farm membership system that allows consumers to sign up to receive a season’s worth of a farm’s products (veggies, eggs, meat, flowers, grain, etc.) over a number of weeks. Along with getting to enjoy fresh, delicious, and local food, being a CSA member is an excellent way to support and get to know your local farmers. 

February 20-26  is the Most Popular Time to Join a Pittsburgh CSA

Join us in promoting CSA Week, the most popular time of the year to sign-up for CSA! This year, our farm is offering a 5% discount to customers who sign up during CSA Week and pay in full. As a special added bonus, we are extending our CSA Week sale for the ENTIRE month of February. When you sign up to become a CSA member, your financial support helps us prepare for the growing season. You’ll enjoy high-quality fresh, locally grown Pennsylvania produce while taking comfort in knowing where and how your food was grown along with meal planning and preservation tips. Don’t wait to sign up, as we have limited spots available! There has never been a better time to connect with fresh local food while helping to make our local food systems and communities more resilient. 

Participating in Community Supported Agriculture Programs (CSA) is the Best Way to Support Pittsburgh Area Produce Farms

Community Supported Agriculture programs are the best way to support local farms, to eat what is in season and to really build a relationship with the grower of your food, where we as the farmer, can give you tips, recommendations and recipes on how to use your produce.

Regarding Haffey Family Farm CSA membership, 2022 season member, Beth H. of Pittsburgh, PA states that Haffey Family farm is the “Best family farm CSA in Pittsburgh! We’ve been happy customers of a number of CSAs in Pittsburgh, but none has been as full of great produce and as connected to a great family as the Haffey Family Farm CSA! Haffey Family Farm CSA offers a number of size and frequency options, and for our family of four, the small weekly share was perfect. The items available were all top quality, fresh, seasonal, and literally hand picked by the family! Kim Haffey sends out delicious recipe options each week to accompany the produce in the share. Makes cooking all of the vegetables much more interesting and fun! Kim is also very responsive with any issues on the CSA–missing a week or an item was never a problem. Highly recommend Haffey Family Farm CSA if you’re in the Pittsburgh area!”

In honor of National CSA Week, we will be holding “Meet the Farmers” events throughout Alleghany, Beaver and Butler Counties.
