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?

First-farmers-market-10_POSTYou’d be pretty excited, right? Well my friends, it’s true!

We work with a number of farms that participate in “Community Supported Agriculture” (most folks use the acronym “CSA”).

The idea is simple:

  1. Sign up with any of the farms listed below.
  2. Pay a monthly subscription.
  3. Receive a box of farm fresh produce at one of the CSA’s delivery locations.
  4. Enjoy delicious, high quality food grown on farms protected by POST.

It’s a terrific model and one of the best ways to support our local farmers and participate in our local food system. Now is a great time to sign up too!

Here are a few of the farms we work with that offer CSA’s. Follow their links to learn more:

Blue House Farm: A place that recognizes and nourishes the connection between good food, the natural world and our community.

Fifth Crow Farm: Grounded in a values-based approach to land stewardship, Fifth Crow Farm is a dynamic and diversified organic farm.

Leftcoast GrassFed: Produces 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef on working lands that sustain the planet and inspires others to take action.

Markegard Family Grass-Fed: Provides the community with locally raised and processed certified grass-fed beef, lamb, pasture raised pork, chicken and dairy.

Pie Ranch: A nonprofit organization and organic farm that cultivates a healthy and just food system from seed to table through food education, farmer training and regional partnerships.

Potrero Nuevo Farm (U-Pick) – The U-Pick club offers folks an opportunity to experience more intimately the source of their food. From June to November, Club Members can come to the farm on Mondays from 3:45 – 7:00 to harvest their own vegetables, berries, herbs and flowers.

                                                                               

Before you go, there’s one more thing. Have you heard about our new Farmland Futures Initiative (FFI)? With FFI, we’re working to raise $25 million in order to triple the amount of protected farmland acreage and triple the number of protected farms on the San Mateo coast within ten years.

I thought you might be curious. You can learn more about this work here and feel free to reach out if you have any questions: post (at) openspacetrust.org
