Buy a share, get farm fresh produce every week

U-M works with local farms to offer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs on or near campus. Thanks to these partnerships, faculty and staff can get fresh, straight-from-the-farm vegetables and fruits by purchasing a “share” in a local farm.

On-campus pick-up

Prochaska Farms (Tecumseh, Michigan) is offering a CSA with weekly pick-up on the Ann Arbor campus. Purchase full and half shares by July 1.

  • Pick-up location: 1919 Green Road, outside the Printing Services Building
  • Dates:  Weekly, every Thursday, June 14 – September 27
  • Time:  3 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Prochaska is a locally-owned and operated farm that uses farming practices and products considered naturally grown. Learn more about buying into Prochaska Farms’ CSA program.

What is a CSA?

CSAs are the most direct route to get your food directly from a farmer. Generally, when you join a CSA, you pay in advance to receive a weekly box of vegetables in season. As a CSA member, you also can get to know your farmer, share in the rewards of the season and experience the wonderful benefits farm-to-table foods have to offer.
