As winter subsides and spring pushes through, many folks may be thinking about fresh veggies. Now is the time to consider a Community Supported Agriculture membership. Joining a CSA program assures you’ll have nutritious food, fresh from the farm, in the months ahead. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) allows people to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce or hormone and chemical free meats care for by local farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables, fruits or meats from a farmer. Weekly, typically from June until October or November, your farmer will deliver that share of produce to a convenient drop-off location or at the farm in your neighborhood. The cost is a little higher, but you are getting a good quality product. Many of the farms listed below offer fruits, vegetables, eggs, meat, cheeses and fresh-cut flowers!
