Good Things Grow Here
CSA Community Supported Agriculture is a dynamic way to put your beliefs about nutrition, ecology and politics into action. Becoming a CSA subscriber supports local farmers by keeping their livelihoods economically viable within their community. In return you have the opportunity to become a shareholder and receive high quality produce, and experience better nutrition and flavor authenticity
Born over fifty years ago, the CSA model of subscription agriculture began throughout Europe and Japan before it was brought to America in the mid-1980’s, Over the years many CSA models have been proven successful and here I would like to share mine for both the first time subscriber and the discerning consumer.
Good Things Grow Here CSA is a monthly subscription, $30.00 per week per month depending on how many delivery weeks there are in a given month.
You may sign on in any given month space permitting and likewise you may cancel the following month. However, to take advantage of the flow of the seasonal harvest three months is recommended as your share will start off light and increase progressively from leafy greens and roots and shoots to fruits. CSA is not merely a weekly trip to the grocery store. If you value eating fine wholesome foods with no chemical sprays and without genetic modification, grown locally and want to know who grows your food and where it comes from my CSA may be for you. If you are interested in your community’s ecology, preservation of the family farm, eating ethically or supporting local businesses my CSA may be for you. As this is a vegetable CSA I recommend you like and enjoy cooking most vegetables . Here is a list of what is grown throughout the season depending on the weekly harvest you can expect 5-8+ items, in your share bag. The quantity is determined by the success of the harvest.
*If you cannot pickup your share on any given week you may assign someone to pick it up for you. If you do not pick-up your share it will be forfeited for that week at your expense.
*I cannot take special requests if one person doesn’t like a particular vegetable.
*All vegetables are subject to crop failure, you share in the risk and the bounty.
I hope you consider supporting my CSA but there are other ways to support your local farming communities, buying locally produced foods and visiting farmers markets is a great way to show your support.
