What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA is a community of people coming together to support local farmers by purchasing produce directly from the farmers for their table.
Customers buy a share (paying in advance), then receive a weekly box of fresh produce and/or meat and eggs, that is delivered to a designated location.
Our CSA differs from most in that we allow our customers to choose each week what they will get, instead of receiving a box of whatever we choose to give them. We send an email with a list of what's available for the week, you choose what you want according to your share size, and email back with your selections.
We grow approximately 50 different varieties of veggies, starting with lettuce and ending with pumpkins. In addition, we have pasture raised pork and beef, which is antibiotic and hormone free, with no animal by-products in the feed. We'll also be having farm fresh eggs.

I've been a customer of Brinkley's for several years now. I get great food from them that has really enriched and livened up our family dinner table - and for a very reasonable price. Besides being good for us, we also love to be able to buy locally and support the North Carolina farming community, which has benefits for farmers, local economies, and the environment. It's such a win-win for all. We're so sad every year when our CSA season with the Brinkleys ends, but eagerly anticipate what they'll have for us in the next one!
I've been a Brinkley Farms CSA customer for three years. Brinkley Farms has a great selection of quality produce, and everyone is great to work with. When they introduced their pork and beef products, I was happy to find out their meats are as delicious as their vegetables. I've even used some of Dianne Brinkley's recipes and found every one to be a winner.
