Weekly Fresh Impact Farms Greens & Herbs CSA

Local, delicious and nutritious! Choose from a variety of options for fresh and flavorful salad greens, micro greens, herbs, and specialty products. Get the same high quality products trusted by the best chefs in DC! 

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. 

 

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.

Terms & Conditions; Important Information

Where do you deliver?

We deliver to the following areas: Arlington, Alexandria, all areas of Falls Church, Fairfax County and McLean in Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Delivery fees are $5 per delivery and are already included in the Delivery CSA Price.

I live in an apartment, will you bring my CSA up to my door?

In order to minimize our delivery drivers' contact with elevators, doorbells etc. we will coordinate with you and your apartment building to either leave them with the front desk or locate an area in the lobby where we can leave the share. 

But I have health concerns and would like it to be brought up to my door, can you help with that?

Of course! We can work with you individually to meet your medical needs. Just let us know. 

Can I customize my CSA? 

We can't allow members to customize their share at this time but there's plenty you can add to your CSA. We have an extensive online farm shop where you can purchase a variety of products including additional greens, herbs and seasonal items to add to your CSA. Leave us a note when you purchase saying you'd like to the goods to be added to your share and we will include it with your delivery or pick up.

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

Yes, you can skip a week. However, given the way CSAs are set up, you will be forfeiting your share for that week. Since everyone starts and ends on the same week, we cannot allow individual members to skip weeks and then add it on at the end of the 8-weeks as we will be into a new share period at that time. If you will be out of town and cannot receive or pick up your share one week, please let us know at least two days in advance and we will arrange to have the equivalent of your share donated to a local family or food assistance center.

Can I cancel my CSA?

Since the CSA model is designed to pay the farmer upfront for all 8-weeks of the CSA, the farmer has already allocated that money to the production of crops based on the total amount of members who sign up. Due to this, we are unable to allow cancellations or refunds. If you do not wish to receive a remaining portion of your CSA, please let us know and we will make arrangements to have your remaining shares donated.

Can I gift a CSA? 

You definitely can, you thoughtful person! If you're gifting to another paradigm resident, simply fill out the form of the chosen share above with all of the recipients details but be sure to input YOUR details for the Payment section. If you have any questions, shoot us an email, info@freshimpactfarms.com.

When will my CSA be available for Pick-Up or Delivery?

 

This CSA will begin the week of November 1, 2020. Once the sign-ups have closed, if you selected the delivery option, the CSAs will be delivered on either Wednesday or Thursday depending on your address. If you selected the pick-up option the CSAs will be available for pick-up at the farm on Wednesdays between the hours of 11AM - 3PM.

How do I care for my Fresh Impact greens?

Please see the FAQ page for detailed instructions on washing, caring and using your greens.

Why have I never heard of Fresh Impact Farms?

 

For the last two years, we have been growing our pesticide-free (what some would classify as "beyond organic") products exclusively for the best chefs in the DC area. These chefs frequently use the rare culinary herbs, micro greens and edible flowers Fresh Impact has become known for. However, due to the COVID-19 crisis we effectively lost our entire customer base overnight. Instead of giving up, we have decided to offer use our farm to provide our community with deliciousness at prices that even our chef customers would be excited about. Over the past few weeks we have adjusted the production in our farm to grow more products that can be used by at-home cooks and families.

I don't need a CSA at this moment but I would still like to support a local business. Will you donate a CSA upon request?

 

Absolutely! We will work with Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) to grow the products they need and then donate the designated amount. As farmers, we believe it is our responsibility to grow food for people in need and this is one way you can help us do just that. If this interests you, once you have purchased your CSA, please send us an email to info@freshimpactfarms.com with “Your Name CSA Donation” in the subject line.
