What if I told you that you could have farm fresh food delivered every week? What if I told you that food was coming from POST-protected farms? You’d be pretty excited, right?
Well, my friends, it’s possible! We work with a number of farms that participate in “Community Supported Agriculture” (most folks use the acronym “CSA”).
The idea is simple:
There are a lot of reasons to join a CSA. Most folks join for the ultra-fresh, locally grown produce. But it’s also a great way to get more connected with the land. Each delivery is an opportunity to learn a bit more about the season and what’s growing on the land. It’s also one of the best ways to support our local farmers and be an active participant in our local food system. Below are a few of the farms we work with that offer CSAs.
