Who We Are


Moutoux_Bittner_ChalmersFuture Harvest A Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture (Future Harvest CASA) is a network of farmers, agricultural professionals, landowners and consumers living and working in the Chesapeake region, which includes Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington DC. Future Harvest CASA promotes profitable, environmentally sound and socially acceptable food and farming systems that work to sustain communities.

Established in 1994 as a result of the successful achievements of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation "Future Harvest Project," part of the Integrated Farming Systems program, Future Harvest CASA was officially incorporated as an independent organization on September 9, 1998 and received nonprofit status on July 13, 1999.

• Local Harvest Dinner—Host a special event at your restaurant featuring local produce and local farms with part of the proceeds benefiting Future Harvest CASA. Future Harvest CASA will help connect you with local growers, help promote the event, and send farmers, consumers, and board members to help make it a success. 

• Charity Benefit—Many restaurants or retailers have one or more times each year when they identify a local charitable organization as the recipient of the proceeds from all sales during a special one-day promotion. Future Harvest CASA is a great candidate to receive those benefits.

• Field Day Sponsor—Sponsorship of one of our educational farmer field days gets you in front of your key audience and helps us provide quality programming that benefits farmers and the people they feed.

• Farming for Profit and Stewardship Conference Sponsor—Our annual conference is the premier showcase in the Mid-Atlantic for sustainable agriculture organizations and businesses. See the 2013 Sponsor and Exhibitor Prospectus.
