Welcome to The First Harvest Club community network. We appreciate your active participation in supporting us and possibly joining our network to provide a centralized system to increase food accessibility for your surrounding community.
The First Harvest Club CSA model is part of a system that connects urban producers and people of color within Fresh Communities Holding Corporation’s STEM food ecosystem closer by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of our farms and group of farms.
Our alternative socioeconomic model, agriculture, delivers food manufacturing, production, and distribution that allows the urban producers, community shareholders, and consumers to share in the rewards of farming and economic liberty.
The First Harvest Club is a subcategory of our STEM Agriculture Ecosystem that has an overarching goal of strengthening a sense of back into the urban community through local markets.
In return for becoming a member, members receive either a weekly or bi-weekly box of produce or other farm goods. This includes in-season fruits and vegetables and can expand to dried goods, eggs, milk, meat, etc.
The First Harvest Club membership with our 40-acre plus working farm located in Brandywine, Maryland, allows members to create lasting, safe memories with their families as they enjoy the Farm’s wonderful annual traditions blending people of color, culture, and food. Not only do members receive fresh vegetables and food, but they also have access to educational, social, and exclusive culinary expired cultural events.
