CSA (Community Supported Agriculture/Aquaculture)
Community Supported Agriculture (or, in our case, Aquaculture!) is an arrangement by which subscribers pay a membership fee up front to the operators of a farm (hatchery!) in exchange for regular shares of produce (oysters!).
We are proud to continue our very own CSA! It is a way for you to have a “share” in the oysters we produce. Joining the CSA means guaranteed fresh oysters, ready for pickup every week.
Why we do what we do
Conscience Point Shellfish, a registered nonprofit corporation in New York State, was founded in June 2013 with the mission to “advance Southampton Town’s rich maritime history with modern practices of sustainable aquaculture and ecological stewardship of town waters.” We achieve our mission by growing shellfish, which are used by the Southampton Town Trustees to seed local harbors, restore shellfish populations and improve water quality; and by promoting aquaculture through education and experiential opportunities.
Our team is made up of eight board members, two employees, and a few volunteers. Each member has brought different background knowledge to the table helping to create the successful farm we have today!
