CSAs: Community Supported Agriculture
EAT FRESH FROM THE FARM
Click here for our list of Farm Members with CSAs.

Reserve a 2017 CSA share of local veggies now! If you like local food, you'll love CSAs ~ they are like a subscription for the coming harvest. CSA members receive a weekly or bi-weekly assortment of seasonal vegetables delivered fresh from the farm. Later Winter tends to be when farmers sell shares and eventually, they run out. To find farms with CSAs near you, click below for our list of members. Simply find a farm with CSA drop sites near you and sign up directly with the farmer.

Happy eating and send a few pictures of your farm shares someday!
