Plentiful Bounty

We recently joined a CSA with our friends.

You may be asking : What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture which brings consumers and farmers together in a relationship of mutual support.

Each member makes a commitment to support the farm throughout the season.

In return, members receive a weekly box of fresh produce from late spring though early fall.

In effect, the farmer and the shareholder literally share the risks and the bounty of the garden.

The partnership allows the farmer to provide a wide variety of produce of the highest quality while keeping costs at or below supermarket prices.
