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 warm months. 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 (usually referred to as CSA members) head to the farm each week to pick up an often bountiful basket of whatever is in season. By purchasing a share, CSA members share in the risks, and the rewards, of the season.
At CSA Day, you’ll meet many local CSA farmers at CSA Day, learn about their farming practices and products available, and have the chance to purchase a farm share for the season. This year, you’ll find CSA farmers who are growing vegetables, fruits, eggs, cheese and meats.
