CSA stands for “community supported agriculture” and it generally involves buying a share (paying the farmer a set amount of money) early in the spring so that the farmer then has the capital to buy seeds, equipment, etc. for the upcoming growing season. In return, the CSA member is given a portion of the harvest that season. This committed group of shareholders provides the stability to the farmer to know that there will be a market for the goods that are grown. As a CSA member, you will be able to browse the inventory on our website, select the items you desire and build a custom box or bag of produce. Your items will be available for pick up at our farm stand or also available for delivery on select days. What we are trying to do is blend the best of both worlds, for both the farmer and the member ..
Dylan grew up in Doylestown and attended Central Bucks West. After graduating in 2001, Dylan worked in the restaurant industry, where he learned how to operate every facet of the business. And so his passion for providing food to others was born. In 2014, Dylan started working at Parx Casino, but in his spare time he was researching agriculture and experimenting with growing vegetables. After seeing the huge downside of mass-scale farming, Dylan developed a plan for small-scale vegetable farming with a mission to make a positive impact on the community he grew up in. Dylan and his wife, Tina, reside in New Britain and are excited to continue stewarding the land at Detweiler Homestead Farm in a natural, regenerative way.
