We are so excited to begin out 9th year as an organic farm and CSA. Now is the time to join for the month of May.
From Local Harvest:
For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.
Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
This arrangement creates several rewards for both the farmer and the consumer. In brief:
Advantages for farmers:
Get to spend time marketing the food early in the year, before their 16 hour days in the field begin
Receive payment early in the season, which helps with the farm’s cash flow
Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow
Advantages for consumers:
Eat ultra-fresh food, with all the flavor and vitamin benefits
Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking
Usually get to visit the farm at least once a season
Find that kids typically favor food from “their” farm - even veggies they’ve never been known to eat
Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows their food and learn more about how food is grown
It’s a simple enough idea, but its impact has been profound. Tens of thousands of families have joined CSAs, and in some areas of the country there is more demand than there are CSA farms to fill it. The government does not track CSAs, so there is no official count of how many CSAs there are in the U.S.. LocalHarvest has the most comprehensive directory of CSA farms, with over 4,000 listed in our grassroots database.
We were so thrilled by the sweet article in the Daily Sentinel this week! YAY for new members! Welcome! Early March will not impress you - except with the gorgeous freshness and taste of the spinach, but nature will wow you with her bounty as we go forward. Remember the entire idea behind a CSA farm is that you share in the abundant AND the lean times. We need your dollars to get the farm going each season and we pledge to thrill you with freshness, beauty and abundance as we go forward into 2018. Don’t forget we have organic chicken, eggs, and wild caught salmon available on the farm. We’re still trying to find another grass-fed beef supplier.
