COMMUNITY- SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA) Cheatham County has a diverse selection of restaurants serving up catfish to sushi to the perfect pizza and locally churned ice cream. It is also rich in active farmland and prosperous gardens. Cheatham County produces an array of in-season fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey, flowers, milk, and much more. With more than 4,000 acres across the county producing soybeans and corn, an increasing number of farms are focusing on small- scale fruit and vegetables to provide to restaurants in surrounding counties and also to residents through the Community- Supported Agriculture program, or better known as CSA’s. Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA), is a system that connects producers with consumers by offering a subscription to a farm’s harvest whereby subscribers receive either a weekly or bi-weekly harvest box. CSA’s directly support the local food chain and offer members an easy and affordable way to try healthy new things, as well as, enjoy seasonal favorites. Currently, Cheatham County is home to multiple farms that offer CSA’s: No.9 Farms, Nourish Marketplace, and Harpeth Moon. Show your local farmers some love and check out their social media pages.
