Borodino farm offers vegetables, meat, eggs through Community Supported Agriculture program
Marigold Farm is a family farm that operates through a community supported agriculture (CSA) program. A CSA is a farm that sells “shares” of the different foods it produces. People who purchase a share pay a set amount of money up front and then are entitled to a portion of each week’s yield. This year, Marigold Farm is selling shares for vegetables, eggs and chicken meat. When the vegetable and meat shares start in June, customers will be able to pick up their share at Marigold Farm or the Skaneateles YMCA every Tuesday.
