What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system that connects consumers directly with farmers and allows them to subscribe to the products of the farm. Supported by an upfront payment, farmer's grow and distribute a variety of their crops to consumers on a weekly basis throughout a fixed period. Ours follows a monthly subscription model. One monthly payment, weekly supply of greens.

 

Why Sign-Up for a Fresh Impact CSA?

It’s good for you!

  • All of our shares include microgreens, which studies have shown have more nutrients than their mature counterparts. Adding these greens to your diet weekly is an easy way to increase your nutrient intake, while supporting a local business.

We're super clean! Our produce is grown using:

  • zero pesticides within a controlled environment where food safety is our top priority. The only people that ever come into contact with your food are our small team of experienced growers who are always wearing scrubs, gloves and masks while in the farm. No need to worry about who touched your food, how long it was on the shelf or where it was grown. We’re your farmers and we’re here to be transparent with you and answer any questions you may have.

Quality, quality, quality!

  • The greens you purchase in the grocery store have been selected based on their ability to be shipped and have a long shelf life, not the flavor they offer. Would you buy a t-shirt that was just made a certain color and size because that is the easiest and cheapest way to make it? Ours, on the other hand, are carefully selected based on their flavor and texture.

We farm sustainably...

  • Our growing systems allow us to use over 90% less water than traditional field-grown greens and herbs. In fact, based on numbers from the EPA, our farm uses less water per year than the average American household!

  • Did you know that 95% of all greens grown in the U.S. come from two places: Yuma, AZ and Salinas, CA? That means that it has to be transported on multiple trucks over thousands of miles all while being refrigerated the entire time. Imagine the loss of quality on that journey. Compare that to them being grown right in Arlington and being delivered to your house within hours of harvest.

It's convenient! ​

  • Healthy food delivered right to your door. No need to go to the grocery store to get fresh greens. Stay away from crowds and have them delivered right to your door or use our no-contact pick-up option from our farm in north Arlington.

Support your community

  • Every dollar spent on hyper local agriculture compounds exponentially within the local economy. Not only are you supporting jobs right here in the DMV area, but you are also getting access to the freshest and most nutritious produce you can find.

See what some of our existing customers had to say:

"I absolutely love the microgreens and basically put them on everything now. Delicious and efficient way to get my nutrients!! I'll be staying on for months to come, it's become a great part of our "new normal" routine." 

"First, we LOVE your produce.  The salad greens are the best ever!  Also they last a really long time!  My husband and 24 year old daughter both said these are top notch gourmet salads! I am so glad I took the leap and started my subscription. It’s such a lovely treat to have during these dreary times.  It feels like decadent luxury, because, well it is!"

"Fresh salad greens, delicious mixes and herbs that pack a punch of flavor - Fresh Impact’s products help turn any ordinary dish into something that could be found at a five star restaurant!" 

I started eating these greens at the beginning of COVID because I believe in supporting small businesses, especially during these extremely difficult times. Honestly, I was happy with my “grocery store greens,” but I was trying to do my part. Well...WOW. I had NO idea what I was missing. The greens from Fresh Impact are far superior to any greens I have ever had in my home before, let alone in most restaurants. I joke that we will never be able to go back. When the CSA began, I introduced Fresh Impact to a number of friends who are equally impressed. I have to add that not only is the quality of the produce amazing, but the people who work there are equally as impressive. I have been treated with kindness, respect and flexibility every single time I’ve interacted with anyone at Fresh Impact. It is clear that they have a customer-care culture at their business and it shows. I HIGHLY recommend the CSA—amazing greens delivered to your door, what more could you want?! Everything is amazing, but the Impact Mix will change your salad game forever :)" 


"I’ve been loving the greens I'm getting: crunchy fresh and just delicious all around. Also- 5 stars on communication. The reminders every week to take my reusable bag gets me excited for what’s to come!"  

"I’ve been pretty homebound this year w/ my compromised Immune system & covid risks. You, Ryan, Emily, and the rest of the team have gone over and above to make me feel connected, nourished, and cared about. Thank you for the kindness of bringing my CSA deliveries to my unit door. Thank you for the amazingly delicious produce you grow and bake. Thank you for helping me stay connected to our wonderful community, especially while I’m on “Rapunzel-mode.” You all have been a highlight of my 2020."

Can I upgrade or downgrade my CSA share?

Loving your share but want more greens? Too many greens for just you!? You can certainly change your share type. In order to do so, you must cancel your current subscription (by emailing info@freshimpactfarms.com) and then simply subscribe to your new share type from our store. When your month's subscription has finished, your next month will begin with your new share type. 

Can I skip a week of my CSA share if I'm out of town?

​​

Yes, you can now skip a week (only one per month) with our subscription service!

If we are not notified 48 hours in advance, you will not receive a refund. 

Can I cancel my CSA?

Yes, you can cancel your CSA subscription. To cancel your CSA subscription, simply email info@freshimpactfarms.com with a message that you'd like to cancel. Since the CSA model is designed to pay the farmer up front, the farm has already allocated that money to the production of crops so your cancellation will not go into affect until the current month is finished. If you'd like to stop the delivery of greens immediately and not receive any more deliveries, kindly include that in your cancellation message. 

 

Can I gift a CSA? 

You definitely can, you thoughtful person! If you're gifting to another person, simply purchase the share and include the recipient's address, email, and phone number in the notes with the order. If you have any questions or need some help, shoot us an email, info@freshimpactfarms.com.
