It’s that time of year again, when fresh, local varieties of fruits and vegetables are right around the corner. Sign up now for a community supported agriculture (CSA) share to receive locally grown and produced food all season long.
A CSA program is a pre-season agreement between a farmer and customer for a weekly share of food. The customer signs up for a weekly share during the growing season. Customers pay at the beginning of the season to support the farmer financially and to help the farmer better plan. CSA members pick up weekly produce from the farm or a designated location. Some CSA offer produce only, while others provide eggs and milk or meat only.
The benefits of becoming a CSA member include weekly fresh produce, trying new fruits and vegetables, a better understanding of seasonal eating and building a relationship with the farmers who grow our food.
