BUSFARM INC is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization based out of Richmond, VA. We started as a mobile farmer’s market from a converted school bus in 2009 and grew to include an indoor farmers market, CSA program and urban farm. Our mission is to grow, source and distribute fresh local products, and encourage a healthy diet of home-grown/hand-made items from our local food shed. Please help support our efforts and our local farmers. Make a donation if you can or join our flexible CSA program today! All shares NOT picked up, are donated to families in the Richmond community. More details on how our CSA works and what to expect are available on our CSA page.
Advantages of a CSA?
You get a regular rotation of local, seasonal food, and become a vital part of the sustainable food system. Your membership helps us to work closely with our farmers and vendors to keep a viable, vital local economy flowing. You may find yourself having a closer, and more respectful relationship with the food you prepare and eat, becoming healthier, and enjoying a deeper appreciation of food culture. And very importantly, our membership directly helps our non-profit work within the community.
