Local Kale for a CSA Box

WHAT IS A CSA?

At their most basic level, CSA farms provide a weekly delivery of sustainably grown produce to consumers during the growing season. CSA members buy a share of a farm’s annual harvest and in doing so, they take on the risks and the rewards of farming—if the farm does well, the produce will be bountiful, but factors outside a farmer’s control can negatively affect a harvest. Purchasing a share helps cover a farm’s yearly operating expenses and allows people committed to the local food economy an opportunity to connect directly to a local farmer. Each grower offers a different package, depending on the farm’s length of season, items offered, cost and drop-off locations.
