What Is A CSA Membership?

18-Weeks of Local, Organic, Good-For-You Food

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between our farm and those interested in receiving the most nutrient-dense, certified organic produce available to the Truckee Meadows area. Our customers become members of our farm who receive a portion of the farm’s harvest each week during our main harvest season (June-September). This means when the farm flourishes, the members of the CSA do too, as they get the highest quality produce imaginable.

2024 CSA IS NOW CLOSED

We're absolutely thrilled to have finalized our CSA crew for 2024! If you didn't get a spot this time around, fret not! Sign-up for our first-come, first-served waiting list, where you can snag a membership if any current members relocate or have adjustments to their schedules (it happens more often than you'd imagine!). Throughout the summer, our aim is to keep a solid membership of 50, maximizing our ability to nourish as many people as possible.

Farmstand Memberships Are Still Available. See More Information Below.

Thanks for submitting!

CSA Pickup Locations

Due to our lean-and-mean 2024 team, we're encouraging our members to conveniently collect their items from either of the two local farmer's markets we regularly attend each week. Should this not be feasible, we highly recommend opting for home delivery instead.

Shop All CSA Sizes

As we gear up for Prema's 8th CSA Season we just wanted to take a moment to express our deepest thanks. By supporting our farm, you are not only investing in the health and well-being of your own family but also in the larger movement towards a more resilient and regenerative food system.

  • Is your produce certified organic?
    Absolutely! We proudly hold dual organic certifications: USDA Certified Organic and Real Organic Project. However, our commitment transcends these labels. We strive to elevate our farm to a "beyond organic" standard by prioritizing biodynamic soil practices, implementing no-till methodologies, and embracing permaculture principles. Our core focus revolves around nurturing the land and fostering a harmonious relationship with the local ecology. Our belief is simple: nourish the land and the land will nourish you.
  • Where is Prema Farm?
    We are located on the Northwest side of Peavine Mountain, just West of Bordertown. We are 20 miles North of downtown Reno, just across the dirt road from Girl Farm. The Sierra foothills are an incredibly beautiful place to farm.
  • Can I see where my veggies are grown?
    Why, yes! We host a special CSA Member-Only farm tour during the CSA season. It’s our member’s opportunity to see exactly where and how their food is grown, and to meet the sweet folks bringing them the harvests.
  • Can I volunteer on your farm?
    Absolutely! We love sharing the beauty of our Sierra foothills farm with those interested. Please reach out to us directly at info@premafarm.com to coordinate.
  • Where can I find your produce locally?
    Besides becoming a CSA member and getting our produce directly packed for you each week, you can also find our produce at the following markets: Shirley’s California Avenue Farmers Market (Saturdays, 8am-1pm; From June-September) Riverside Farmers Market (Sundays, 9am-1pm; Reno’s Only Year-Round Market) Perenn Grocery Great Basin Food Co-op Depending on the week, we also supply several local restaurants including: Perenn Bakery Claio Liberty Food & Wine Exchange DOPO Pizza & Pasta Estella at The Jesse Genesee Store
  • What can I expect in my CSA box each week?
    Your weekly CSA will be a reflection of what we're harvesting each week. Each box has different varieties of veggies and herbs, with staple cooking items (i.e. lettuces, herbs, garlic, kale, etc.) repeating often. We occasionally partner with other local organic growers to provide our CSA members with unique items we don’t grow.
  • Why would I pay so far in advance for my veggies?
    It might seem strange to purchase “your share” of veggies months ahead of time, but doing so ensures you a spot on our CSA which has a tendency to fill up before the season even begins. It also plays a vital role in supporting your local farmers! We make all of the big purchases for our season in the winter months (January-March) in order to be able to bring you fresh organic food in the late Spring to early Summer. That’s why CSA stands for “community supported agriculture”. Huge government subsidies don't support small organic farms - people within our community do.
  • Is your produce certified organic?
    Absolutely! We proudly hold dual organic certifications: USDA Certified Organic and Real Organic Project. However, our commitment transcends these labels. We strive to elevate our farm to a "beyond organic" standard by prioritizing biodynamic soil practices, implementing no-till methodologies, and embracing permaculture principles. Our core focus revolves around nurturing the land and fostering a harmonious relationship with the local ecology. Our belief is simple: nourish the land and the land will nourish you.
  • Are family-size or half-size boxes available?
    Yes! New to 2024 we recognize one-size does not fit all. Our goal is to get as much local organic produce into the kitchens of our community, so we’ve decided to offer three distinct CSA harvest sizes and a year-round ‘Choose Your Own Produce' Farmstand CSA - catering to varying family or single-household needs.
  • I'm going out of town and won't be able to receive my CSA box, what should I do?
    We recommend that you offer your CSA share to a friend who could use a bit more fresh, organic produce in their life. :) You can have anyone pick up your share in your place, whether they will be consuming it themselves or saving it for you. Unfortunately, we aren't able to offer refunds for the weeks that you're not able to pick up your share, be it for a pre-planned vacation or unexpected unavailability.
  • CSA Weekly Pickup
    CSA Members are responsible for picking up their CSA share from their chosen site during the times listed. If you cannot pick up your CSA share for any reason, you may send someone to pick it up for you instead. Going on vacation? Have a friend or neighbor experience the delicious vitality of truly farm-fresh food!
  • Left-Behind Boxes
    If a CSA member fails to pick up their weekly share, these left-behind boxes of produce will be donated to those who don't normally have access to farm-fresh, organic produce.
  • Pickup-Location Change
    If you need to change your pick-up location, you must inform Prema Farm (at info@premafarm.com) at least 3 days before your scheduled pick-up day. This notice is necessary for us to reorganize where your CSA share is stored and delivered.
  • Refund Policy
    If you need to cancel your CSA membership, we require notice via email (to info@premafarm.com) at least 2 weeks before the next payment cycle. Members will only receive a refund of the remaining weeks and not for the time prior to their stop date.
  • CSA Means Shared Risk, Shared Reward
    All CSA members share in the risks and rewards of the farm. At Prema Farm, we promise to do our best to provide you with a bountiful share each week, but the quantity of produce can vary from week-to-week due to extreme weather, overwhelming pests, or other production factors despite our best efforts. In the unlikely event of a crop failure, your CSA share will be supplemented with other crops grown on the farm that are ready for harvest at that time.
