CSA Day Saturday is Saturday, March 4
Community members are invited to stop by our Co-op on Saturday, March 4 from 10-1 for CSA Day. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms are a unique way for people to receive fresh, locally grown food at a reasonable price every week during the warmer months. You can meet several local farmers at CSA Day, learn about their farming practices and products available, and have the chance to purchase a farm share for the season.
CSA farmers sell “shares” in their upcoming harvest during the spring, giving them the capital to prepare for the growing season. Then, usually from about June to October, the folks who have purchased shares, the CSA members, visit the farm each week to pick up an often bountiful basket seasonal produce, flowers, herbs and/or eggs. Some CSAs also utilize Just Food as drop off site and you can pick up at the Co-op. By purchasing a share, CSA members share in the risks, and the rewards of the season.
This year, attendees will find CSA farmers who are growing vegetables and fruits, as well as providing eggs, flowers and herbs! Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet local farmers! Even if you are not looking to participate in CSA Day, many of the farms provide Just Food with their products over the course of the year and this is a great way to get to know your farmers. Stop in and chat with them!
The following farms have confirmed their attendance at CSA day: Late Bloom Farm, Open Hands Farm, Sogn Valley Farm, Spring Wind Farm and Sunflower Herbal CSA.
We look forward to welcoming these farms, and others, at our annual CSA Day!
