Welcome to Beneficial Farms CSA
Beneficial Farms CSA provides affordable weekly shares of healthy, locally and regionally grown food to members for the entire year. We are a collaborative CSA that supports over 30 farms in New Mexico and beyond to offer a diverse range of food choices. We work only with farms that use sustainable farming methods. Our core partner farms are Mesa Top Farm, Gemini Farm, Red Mountain Farm, Synergia Ranch and Talon de Gato. click here for a list of all the farms and their websites.
Winter is a great time to become a member of Beneficial Farms CSA. This season offers great value and creative bags of food from the region; shares include a variety of greens, root vegetables, and organic greenhouse grown tomatoes,lettuce and herbs. We offer pantry items such as toasted atole, honey, jam, quinoa, red and green chile and dried beans. Our online Marketplace offers local special order items such as organic pecans, organic raspberry jams, artisanal cheeses, grass-fed & finished beef and more!
We welcome new members at any time. Sign up by midnight Monday to receive your share of produce that same week. There are also weekly shares of cheese, grass-fed ground beef and eggs available.

Member satisfaction and flexibility make Beneficial Farms CSA unique. Because we know that not all of our members will like everything in each weeks' share, we set up an exchange table at two of our pickup locations. Members can opt-out of their share any week without penalty if they are going out of town.
