Love fresh, local food? Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to bring the very best farms have to offer into your kitchen every week.
CSA members join a farm early in the season by purchasing a share of that farm’s products in advance. In return, members get a delicious weekly or bi-weekly box of foods, carefully grown, harvested, and washed by the farmer, all season. Members pick up their shares in their neighborhood or at their farm, and can participate in on-farm events, work days, potlucks, u-pick gardens, and more. Some farms offer choose-your-own or “market shares” where you can compile your own box of vegetables at their weekly farm stand!
Do you enjoy cooking at home, trying new recipes, or eating family meals? Do you like the flavors and challenges of healthy seasonal eating and the idea of connecting with your farmer? Then CSA is right for you!
Small, sustainable farms that grow organic food right in our neighborhoods are the backbone of a local food economy. Through the CSA model, farmers can sell their produce locally for a fair price, and families can access the freshest vegetables while enjoying a relationship with their farmer. Joining a CSA is the very best way to support local farms and ensure a continued supply of fresh, local vegetables — not only in your kitchen, but in our whole state. It’s a win-win!
