Sign up for The Food Project's Lynn CSA!

The Food Project CSA is a partnership between our farm and a community of supporters. CSA members purchase a "share" of the crops that are grown. In return, we provide a healthy supply of sustainably grown, fresh vegetables, flowers and herbs. Every week from mid-June to the end of October, CSA shareholders are invited to our farm site on Munroe Street in Lynn to receive a wide variety of fresh, local, sustainably grown vegetables. Shareholders will receive 8-24 pounds of produce each week. The poundage increases as the summer harvest gets into full swing.
