R   o   u   n   d     R   i   v   e   r     F   a   r   m   s   is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program in Leesville, SC. CSA's are healthy relationships between a community of people and a local farm and farmer. Realizing that in these times not everyone can be on the land growing their own food, a CSA farm entrusts the care and nurture of the land and crops to one skilled in organic farming.

A community of people support this farmer by purchasing shares in the year's harvest. In exchange, the farmer provides fresh, in season, organic fruit, vegetables and herbs on a weekly basis. The shareholders also have the opportunity to partake in farm activities and be part of growing their food if they choose. Community Supported Agriculture allows consumers to take the responsibility for the food system which nourishes them. It allows social responsibility towards the land. Agricultural workers need to be respected and supported and the land needs to be respected and cared for. When this is the case, the food which is produced will be truly nourishing. Round River Farms is committed to these principles.

"A vision without a task is but a dream,
a task without a vision is drudgery.
A vision with a task,
is the hope of the world."
