Fresh Produce

As a member of a CSA (community supported agriculture), you are buying directly from the farmer. Here’s how it works: Farmers offer a number of shares to the public. Your share pays for a season of produce (or meats, dairy products, flowers, etc.), and in return you receive a box of food weekly or bi-weekly throughout the season, usually dropped off at central locations. For more information, contact each CSA directly.
