If you’re interested in having access to the healthiest food available and supporting local farmers, then community supported agriculture (CSA) is for you. CSA farms offer special programs to locals that educate about the growing process, while making sure buyers are stocked with the freshest seasonal ingredients. Programs offer weekly or bi-weekly CSA baskets filled with a variety of fresh produce and/or meats. Becoming a member of a CSA not only supports the local family farm, but also encourages a healthier lifestyle throughout the community. Partnerships like these help people eat seasonally, with ingredients that haven’t traveled thousands of miles to get to your plate.
