Agriculture Supported Communities (ASC) is a farm share program that offers a weekly selection of organic produce and pasture-raised proteins to families in the Lehigh Valley and Berks County areas.
ASC allows you to pay week-to-week, rather than upfront as in a traditional Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model. Members that participate in SNAP can use federal SNAP dollars to pay for discounted shares. By purchasing a share, you’ll become a stakeholder in Rodale Institute and a direct supporter of your local food economy.
Memberships are accepted on a rolling basis year-round. Full-season shares run from June until the end of October.
The ASC program also operates weekly farmers markets and a rotating Mobile Market selling à la carte organic produce, meats, bread, cheese and other local items. SNAP, WIC and Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program are accepted at all markets.
