Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture is based on a community of consumers who support a farmer with regular contributions, making the farmer less dependent on trade chains and less subject to natural hardships. This group of people finances the cost of a professional vegetable farm for one season or year, and recieves local, high-quality, fresh produce – but also bears the risk of crop failure (from things like bad weather or pests). This concept is being implemented in and around Vienna by Gärtnerhof Ochsenherz and Biohof Radl.

CSA Biohof Radl

With a regular contribution, members can “rent” a piece of farmland (about 40 m2) to be managed by the Radl family. Every week, members are provided with produce from their farm share, which can be picked up either at the farm, or at the former BioVegan2Go shop in Vienna – kind and quality of the produce will depend on growing season and weather. Week by week, Biohof Radl offers the largest selection of seasonal, certified-organic vegetables. Members can choose between a full membership with 24 boxes of produce, or a partial membership with 12. Through informational material, community nights, and active cooperation in farm-work days, a sense community is grown and strengthened at Biohof Radl.

Gela – Gärtnerhof Ochsenherz

There are two ways to get involved with the Collective Agriculture Project at Ochsenherz garden market. First, members can sign up for a weekly delivery of ready-packed vegetable shares. Between spring and autumn, the farm team provides 26 boxes of produce to be picked up every Tuesday, and the pickup points are organized by harvest participants themselves. The produce boxes are available in 2 sizes (1 or 2 shares) and in the main harvest season, contain about 10 different types of vegetables, as well as herbs. Second, members have the option to pick-and-choose an assortment of vegetables at produce stand once a week. Participants enjoy helping out with the stand as another way to get involved.
